THE GULF WAR (OPERATIONS DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM):
DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM were the largest battlefield
TECHINT operations since the Vietnam War, and the largest joint and
combined TECHINT operations since World War II. The Joint Captured
Materiel Exploitation Center (JCMEC) was formed with the Army's FMIB to
serve as the nucleus and headquarters. Augmentation to the FMIB
included TECHINT personnel from every element of the Department of
Defense (DOD), the national S&TI community, Great Britain, Canada, and
During Sadaam Hussein's attack on the Saudi Arabian city of Khafji in
February 1991, a previously unseen and highly modified tank was
captured. This tank, a modified T-55, had vastly improved external armor
and possibly new fire control, weapons, and optical systems. A team from
the JCMEC was dispatched forward to conduct a hasty exploitation and to find out if this tank required a tactical capabilities reassessment. In
layman's terms, could this new tank, with its improved armor, defeat a
broader array of friendly weaponry? Within 2 days, the TECHINT collection
team soldiers, analysts at the JCMEC, and national S&TI agencies in the
United States were able to report their findings to the theater commander
and his staff.
