SIAC - Sources MS DIO and Civilian Intelligence services SATCEN Diplomatic missions (EUSR activities, Commission representations) ESDP Missions (EULEX, EUMM Georgia) Partners (OSCE, UN) OSINT
Intel from all MS, combined resources Only Intel support to GSC Strengthens daily work in GSC Accumulates Intel and disseminates to MS Focal point between ESDP-missions and EC Strengths
Weaknesses Lacking own sources (SATCEN, ESDP-missions) RFI tool – Slow delivery of Intel, limited tactical use Lack of secure communications to/from theatre (ESDP-missions) SITCEN and EUMS INT DIR, separate chains of command Uneven amount of represented MS in SITCEN and EUMS Culture difference, military (EUMS) and civilian (SITCEN) Operational/source Intel is national, not likely to be shared
