CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. October 1, 2014 – This week, SHINE Systems is happy to celebrate with its partner agency, the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC), the 10-year anniversary of its Counter Insurgency Targeting Program (CITP). Ten years ago, on September 29, 2004, the Deputy Secretary of Defense formally approved the originally named Counter IED Targeting Program. The program has quickly expanded from a small group of military and Department of the Army Civilians (DACs) to an organization 300 strong. In 2011, the agency acquired its current name, the Counter Insurgency Targeting Program (CITP).

SHINE Systems is proud to have been part of their growth via ongoing contract vehicles for the past 6 years. We strongly support the CITP and various SHINE Systems team members have had the opportunity to work with the CITP during their deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Throughout CITP’s history, many improvements and modifications have been made to the Program; yet, many core attribute have stayed the same. The CITP still remains a team of military, DACs, and contractors all focused on high-quality intelligence analysis and production; they still feature a superb skillset including technical network and weapons analysts; and they still deploy one-third to one-half of their analysts to support operating forces’ engagements in combat throughout the world.

Currently, SHINE serves the mission through professional services support on all CITP acquisition, planning, and program management initiatives. We value our ongoing relationship with NGIC and the CITP mission and look forward to continuing our support to the warfighter.
