The Advanced Technical Intelligence Center for Human Capital Development (ATIC) is a leading university and industry-focused research, education, and training nonprofit corporation within the Dayton Region consolidating technical intelligence education and training available in the DoD, national agencies, and civilian institutes and industry. ATIC incorporates a state-of-the-art, flexible, and scalable on-site and distance learning environment and a research lab that broadens opportunities and options for research and collaboration across the intelligence and research and development communities in all intelligence disciplines. The close proximity of ATIC to the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC), the nation’s premier technical intelligence exploitation center; to the world-class scientists and engineers of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL); to the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), an Associate member of the National Intelligence University System; and to the large and growing contractor base in the Dayton region provide a unique advantage for leveraging research. A robust technical intelligence learning and research capability at ATIC will continue to cement Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s (WPAFB) reputation as the leader in education, training, research, development, and operational employment of highly complex intelligence data.

History

ATIC was formed in 2006 by a confederation of Dayton-area government, industry, and academic organizations with congressionally-directed funding to help solve the increasing shortage of technical intelligence expertise ["The U.S. Intelligence Community’s Five Year Strategic Human Capital Plan", Annex to the U.S. National Intelligence Strategy, June 22, 2006.] . Exponential growth in the use of technical intelligence, e.g., Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT)/Advanced Geospatial Intelligence (AGI), Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT), and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) --combined with the increased application of Human Intelligence (HUMINT) and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)--by the Intelligence Community (IC) and warfighters is severely straining the technical intelligence workforce, leading to a nationwide shortage of specialized expertise with appropriate clearances ["Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities before and after the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001", 107th Congress, 2nd Session, Senate Report 107-351, House Report 107-792, December 2002] Growth in this workforce from within civilian U.S. graduate schools is hindered by the increasing numbers of foreign national faculty and students enrolled in engineering and science programs ["Science and Engineering Indicators 2008: Research and Development: Essential Foundations for U.S. Competitiveness in a Global Economy", National Science Foundation, Division of Science Resource Statistics, 2008.] . ATIC intends to be the first and only not-for-profit organization of its kind, to offer the IC specialized, technical, in-residence and distance learning, short courses, certificate programs, accredited associate and bachelor programs, along with the unique ability to host conferences and events in a state of the art secure auditorium, Video Teleconferencing (VTC) and/or meeting room capability, all delivered from a single, secure location.

Mission

The ATIC mission is to develop an appropriately-cleared Advanced Technical Intelligence (ATI) workforce of the future by providing training and education to all elements of the Intelligence Community (IC) and those interested in becoming part of the IC, and by providing research facilities for emerging technologies. To accomplish this mission, the ATIC will develop and operate an educational and research facility, staffed by a cadre of faculty and subject matter experts, to instruct and grow this unique workforce in the Dayton area. Ultimately, the workforce created by the ATIC will enhance our nation’s advanced technical intelligence programs.
