BRGE - Intelligence and Electronic Warfare Brigade
The Intelligence and Electronic Warfare Brigade (BRGE) was created 1st September 1993, to solve intelligence shortcomings observed during the Gulf War at the instigation of the then-Interior Minister Pierre Joxe. It provides the Defense Ministry and military commands with signals intelligence (SIGINT) support. The BRGE derives signal intelligence by monitoring a variety of communications and other signals, such as radars. For this purpose it controls and administers facilities which operates from a number of locations. In addition to providing signals intelligence, the BRGE also provides advice and assistance to the Armed Forces on the security of their communications and information technology systems.
