We collect, analyse, and disseminate information concerning conditions abroad which are of importance to Denmark’s security, and to the security of Danish military units deployed on international missions.

Intelligence activities include collection of information of political, financial, scientific, and military interest. It also includes international terrorism, extremists, international arms trafficking, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

We collect information via “closed” and open sources. “Closed” sources include electronic intelligence (SIGINT), human intelligence (HUMINT), and bilateral co-operation with a wide range of other intelligence services. Open sources include newspapers, journals, TV, and the Internet.

Moreover, we direct and control the military security, both for installations and units in Denmark and for units, ships and aircraft deployed on international missions abroad.
