The contract provides BAE Systems experts who will assist the 116th MIB to better understand regional threats.

The team’s work will also help update and improve soldier training. The work in the contract aligns with INSCOM’s larger mission to consolidate, modernize, and strengthen its intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities as outlined in the Army’s 2020 Intelligence strategy document.
