Pentagon still working out details for intelligence revamp

DENVER'The Defense Department is putting the finishing touches on a plan to overhaul the government's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance organizations and methods.

The Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence is working on the integration road map, which will spell out changes in gathering, integrating and sharing data throughout the agencies that make up the intelligence community, said Letitia Long, deputy undersecretary of defense, policy, requirements. She spoke yesterday at a conference on ISR transformation.

DOD was supposed to submit the road map to Congress by the end of the month, but the Pentagon has asked for an extension of the deadline. The department expects to finish the plan within the next couple of months, she said.

The road map will detail DOD's intelligence strategy through 2018. Long said it will identify department funding goals, spell out what types of oversight are needed and define how ISR can enhance the department's capabilities.
