Trades In Our Unit

Equipment

As Intelligence Operators and Intelligence Officers with the Primary Reserve, our primary and day-to-day tools are desktop and notebook computers, networking components, mapping tools, and an array of software applications. Our computing and networking equipment can be dismounted, meaning we can operate out of office-style environments, or mounted, meaning we can operate out of specialized vehicles in the field and other deployed locations.

We might focus on military intelligence, but we are trained as soldiers first. This means that, in addition to the tools we use for military intelligence, we also regularly train our army field craft and complete the Army Individual Battle Task Standard components including on the C7A2 5.56-mm Automatic Rifle and the Browning 9-mm Pistol.
