Military Intelligence Officer / Associate Director, Homeland Security

Watch two intelligence experts share why protecting civilians starts and ends with gathering the best information.

RACHELL BACA: Captain Rachell Baca, military intelligence officer, United States army.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: I'm Erroll Southers, I'm the Associate Director of Research Transition at the National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events.
RACHELL BACA: Welcome to I've got skills.
RACHELL BACA: 9/11 happened my senior year-- and so I started thinking more about the military. six years later, I've rather do this than go into the-- any other world right now. I chose intelligence because the idea of doing intelligence and putting puzzle pieces together really intrigued me.
RACHELL BACA: Thinking about what the enemy might do or where we should go to throw off the enemy's idea. You get the intel skill underneath your belt. You become more marketable on the outside.
RACHELL BACA: I love my job.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: I have a long law enforcement background. I started in the local police department, and-- went on to the FBI, and worked foreign counter intelligence and terrorism.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: CREATE is a Homeland Security Center of Excellence it's a consortium of over 20 universities and colleges throughout the United States, and international, that focus on risk and economic analysis of terrorism events. Intelligence is the key to national security. there are certain experiences and expertise that you only learn in the field.
RACHELL BACA: Hi, sir. I'm Captain Rachell Baca, United States army. Welcome to the Iron Brigade (PH).
ERROLL SOUTHERS: Erroll Southers. Nice to meet you.
RACHELL BACA: Right now, we're in the brigade base camp. So we've got the brigade headquarters which is where we track all of the battle.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: I've had the fortune of having former Army officers in my classroom. They come across as more mature. They have a world experience that I welcome.
RACHELL BACA: All right, Erroll. I'm gonna take you over to where I work-- the tactical operations center.
RACHELL BACA: So in the battalion tactical operation center-- that's where we just keep our thumb on the heartbeat of what’s going on up there.
LIEUTENANT BECA (MALE): We take the-- intelligence that we get and make predictive analysis in departments like this.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: They're able to share intelligence amongst different units that are on the ground.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: Going through programs where they're trying to determine whether or not it's gonna meet their mission space.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: So you get some front line intel that you can take a look at the battlefield before you even start to insert people?
LIEUTENANT BECA (MALE): Roger that. You got anything like that in your world?
ERROLL SOUTHERS: I wish. (LAUGHTER)
ERROLL SOUTHERS: They're doing a very good job of resource allocation and deployment of assets in meeting those missions.
RACHELL BACA: The U.A.S. or unmanned aerial system that's our eyes in the sky, our ears in the ground.
MALE VOICE #2: The Shadow will provide-- coverage the entire time prior to a mission. During the mission, take action to visually see the troops on the ground that the Shadow (UNINTEL) supports.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: The Army does an extraordinary job of preparing people to cross over to the civilian world.
RACHELL BACA: All right. So this is the battalion operations intel feeds up to the brigade. The intelligence officer there then makes his recommendation to the operations officer then allocates who gets what when.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: And it's all real time?
RACHELL BACA: Yes.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: Outstanding.
RACHELL BACA: Exactly.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: In a specific discipline like intelligence, they are just perfect people to come into the civilian world, and work in some of the ongoing efforts that we're engaged in.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: Good to see you again, Captain.
CAPTAIN RACHELL BACA: Good to see you, too.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: Welcome to USC. Come on in, I'll show you around.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: The biggest challenge we face is not just trying to determine how yesterday's threats or incidents happened, but what are tomorrow's threats? What are tomorrow's risks? Storms, hurricanes, when they happen, what are the devastations going to look like? How is the continuity of operations going to occur? we're looking at natural and man enabled disasters our goal is to give tools to operators like you, so you can do your job better, more efficiently, and more effectively.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: CREATE is working with the Port of LA to enhance their counterterrorism capacities, to reduce the risk of a terrorist attack. They're looking at the vulnerabilities they have at the port, they're looking at the threat that the personal object might present. And given that there is a real issue, what are the consequences if they're successful in getting in?
ERROLL SOUTHERS: So this is a model we created for port security. What we've done is introduce an algorithm based on game theory where these patterns are never the same.
CAPTAIN RACHELL BACA: I think what Erroll is doing with CREATE is absolutely phenomenal. Knowing what type of-- of target this is for terrorists, and how big it is, and the impact on the economy of the United States luckily enough for this country, we have individuals who are focused on that for us.
ERROLL SOUTHERS: Well, the skill set that Captain Baca demonstrated is just a real testament to what the United States army is able to do with their people. I was very impressed with her command level-- her skill set leadership capacity but more importantly the technology she has at her fingertips to get the mission accomplished.
