6th Military Intelligence Battalion (6MI)

6MI is a hybrid intelligence unit structured to support 77th Brigade, Army Special Operations Brigade and 6th (UK) Division. It provides intelligence support integral to the planning and execution of unconventional and information operations.

It comprises two Regular MI Coys, two Reserve MI Coys, a hybrid/integrated HQ Coy and a Reserve hub to enable the Reserve aspects of the Battalion - geographically spread across Upavon, Hermitage, Bulford, Manchester, Stourbridge, Bletchley and Wyton.

The Battalion’s strength is its people. The common motivation for Reserves joining is to seek an intellectual and physical challenge. We provide the necessary training to enable recruits to become Military Intelligence analysts, with an emphasis on building core Operational Intelligence (OPINT) skills and an understanding of actual and potential theatres of operation. Analysts need to be able to draw information from a wide variety of sources, ranging from open-source material from the news media to highly classified information. They must be able to understand complex situations and then communicate their conclusions to decision makers.

Other capabilities within the Battalion that enhance the support provided include:

  • Audience analysis
  • Systems analysis
  • Information environment analysis
  • Targeting
  • Data exploitation
  • Partner force assessment
  • Open-source intelligence
  • Human intelligence
  • Counter intelligence
