Intelligence Officers (Collection Requirements Management- Multi-Intelligence) or IO (CRM Multi-INT) support the coordination, research, registration/creation, validation, and monitoring of multiple intelligence discipline collection requirements, aligning information needs to predetermined intelligence priorities, and requesting advisory or direct tasking of operational, theater and national-level collection resources.
