U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Elizabeth Train believes the military service should have a centralized networking system for branch personnel to analyze large amounts of intelligence data, FCW reported Friday.

Sean Lyngaas writes Train, the Office of Naval Intelligence commander, told the publication the organization is interested in acquiring commercial analytics tools that can give intelligence analysts quick access to information.

She added the Navy has established a new unit that aims to codify “information dominance capabilities as a warfighting domain,” according to FCW.

ONI works to collect information from signal, geospatial and human sources as well as to disseminate maritime ISR data to the U.S. Coast Guard, State Department and Drug Enforcement Administration.

The office also collaborates with the National Reconnaissance Office to perform analysis of massive intelligence datasets.
