ONI is headquartered in Suitland, MD, and is collocated with its four Centers of Excellence. The facility features a 24/7 Global Maritime Collaboration Center, world class science and engineering laboratories and an information technology center.
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 produces relevant maritime intelligence and moves that intelligence rapidly to key strategic, operational, and tactical decision makers.
The 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. We produce 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 war fighters and national decision makers and agencies.
The Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) is the leading provider of maritime intelligence to the U.S. Navy and joint warfighting forces, as well as national decision makers and other consumers in the Intelligence Community. Established in 1882, ONI specializes in the collection, analysis, production and dissemination of vital, timely and accurate scientific, technical, geopolitical and military intelligence information for key consumers worldwide. ONI is chartered to provide products and services to meet Navy, DoD and national maritime intelligence requirements.
