I released this article to Wikipedia. In particular, the identical text that appears there is of my sole authorship. Therefore, no credit for Wikipedia content on the Citizendium applies.

This is part of a series of Wikipedia articles of which I wrote all or part, and will be updating here once I figure out the system. While I won't call them "subpages" formally, six articles expand on this one.

This article is a subset article in a series under intelligence collection management. For a hierarchical list of articles, at higher see the intelligence cycle management hierarchy. This article is one of a series on major collection disciplines, the others being Signals intelligence (SIGINT), Imagery intelligence (IMINT), Human Intelligence (HUMINT), Technical intelligence (TECHINT) and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). See the heading in this article, Disciplines for the six major subdisciplines that comprise MASINT.

If six articles expand on this one, they can be linked to in the appropriate place within this article, and they can and should also be linked from a CZ:Related Articles subpage. If you need help setting that up, just ask here on the talk page!

There's actually an even more complex hierarchy than just the ones that descend from this. At the very top is intelligence (information gathering), then intelligence cycle management, then the management of collection, analysis, dissemination and security.

This article is one of the first level under collection, its peers including, at least, Human intelligence (HUMINT), Signals intelligence (SIGINT), Imagery intelligence (IMINT), Open source intelligence (OSINT), technical intelligence (TECHINT]], scientific and technical intelligence (STINFO), and some that blend collection and analysis, such as financial intelligence, medical intelligence, and economic intelligence

There are six basic types of MASINT, but each of those can contain 3-10 disciplines. Howard C. Berkowitz 12:29, 2 May 2008 (CDT)

Sounds like an excellent group of articles to test out CZ:Related Articles on...this replaces WP's category functions.
Also, for any given specific article, we are obligated to credit WP if any remnant of content contributed by others remains in the article. You don't have to check the "Content is from Wikipedia?" box if the work on that article is entirely yours--but "one drop" is enough to require us to credit them for that article. --Larry Sanger 12:33, 2 May 2008 (CDT)

CZ: Measurement and signature intelligence

In the interest of future recruiting, I've created a Subgroup for MASINT, and will try to mention our work. There's especially little public material on the discipline, so it's a good start. Howard C. Berkowitz 07:13, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
