They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Assuming those words come from a Army National Guard Imagery Analyst, those words could protect the lives of U.S. personnel in the field.
National Guard Imagery Analysts provide information about enemy forces and potential battle areas to leadership. This information is absolutely necessary to plan for our national defense. In this role, you will work with other intelligence specialists to gather and study images and information required for designing defense plans and tactics. You will analyze aerial and ground photographs, as well as electronic imagery of foreign ships, bases, missile sites, and industrial facilities. You will also identify enemy weapons and equipment defenses, and study land and sea areas that could become battlegrounds in time of war.
Join the Guard as an Imagery Analyst and your training could prepare you for a future with Government agencies that collect, record, analyze, and distribute tactical and technical intelligence information or in other fields, such as research, business planning, surveying, or cartography. You'd most likely be qualified to work for engineering, mapmaking, mining, land evaluation, and construction companies.
Earn while you learn

Job training for an Imagery Analyst requires 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 21 weeks of Advanced Individual Training and on-the-job instruction, including practice in intelligence gathering. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
