The 501st Military Intelligence Brigade has a legacy of service as the eyes and ears for the longest-standing stabilization force mission in U.S. military history. The brigade is dedicated to supporting combined forces operations upholding the armistice agreement that ended hostile action on the Korean Peninsula in 1953.
The brigade, headquartered in Seoul, Korea, along with its five battalions, is a uniquely configured military intelligence organization incorporating all forms of traditional and developing intelligence collection, analysis and dissemination technologies. The 501st MI Brigade is the only Army unit of its kind containing organic assets that span the full array of intelligence disciplines: imagery, signals, measurement and signatures, and human intelligence.
The 501st Military Intelligence Brigade conducts theater level multi-discipline intelligence for Joint and Combined Warfighters from the Republic of Korea.
