Signals Intelligence (SIGINT or SI) is a NSA/CSS intelligence-gathering operation through wires(cables) and wireless(radio waves). It is presumably headquartered in Information Operations Technology Center (IOTC), Fort Meade, Maryland,[1] with branches around the US, including San Antonio, Texas.

NSA PRISM is a project of this 'INT'.

There are 3 divisions(INT) in SIGINT

  • COMINT: Communications Intelligence
  • ELINT: Electronic Intelligence
  • TELINT/FISINT: Telemetry Intelligence / Foreign Instrumentation Signals Intelligence

Access and partnershipsEdit

ComInt has access to the Internet Backbone (bandwidth pipelines) within the USA,[2] and maintains partnerships with over 80 Global Corporations including Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Verizon, AT&T, Oracle, Qualcomm, EDS, HP, Cisco, Motorola, Qwest.

UEFI is suspected to be born from the NSA’s partnership with Microsoft, Intel, and Apple.


Apparently, Google and Yahoo didn't give US intelligence enough data on their customers, so ComInt directly accessed their Internet bandwidth pipeline for access to user data.[3][4]
