The Defense Intelligence Agency took part in a two-week exercise of joint, integrated activity between operations, intelligence and technology. The U.S. Navy-led 2019 Joint Innovation Battle Lab exercise took place at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story from April 29th through May 10th, DIA said Thursday.

DIA's Office of Advanced Technologies Intelligence worked with operators to field technologies for the JIBL exercise. The agency served as leader of the exercise's technology segment. The annual event is intended to boost collaborative technological work between the military, the intelligence community, federal law enforcement groups, industry and academia.

 “One of the exercise goals is to integrate with our interagency partners to increase speed, accuracy and lethality," said Matt Avery, technology line of effort director for JIBL. “As technology experts, DIA must identify innovative technologies to meet intelligence and operational requirements for warfighters,” he added.
