Office of Naval Intelligence

The Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) is a core element of the Navy’s Information Warfare Community whose goal is to gain and hold a decisive information advantage over America’s potential adversaries. ONI collects, analyzes, and produces relevant maritime intelligence and disseminates that intelligence rapidly to key strategic, operational, and tactical decision-makers to meet Navy, Department of Defense, and national requirements. ONI’s integrated workforce of active duty and Reserve naval and civilian professionals supports combat operations and provides vital information for planning America’s defense against maritime threats at home and around the world. ONI produces maritime intelligence on naval weapons and technology proliferation, transnational threats in civil maritime counter-proliferation, counter-narcotics and the global maritime environment, and other activities that directly support the U.S. Navy, joint warfighters, and national decision-makers and agencies.
