Oriental blue and silver gray (Argent) are the colors associated with the Military Intelligence Corps. The helm is adapted from the unit's parent organization. The globe refers to the worldwide scope of the unit's mission and alludes to the "all source" emphasis of the motto. The lightning flash and sword symbolize speed and accuracy of communications. The laurel wreath denotes achievement. Black stands for strength and stability.
The Intelligence mission, involving secrecy and manipulation of information, is represented by the chess-piece and the heraldic rose, the latter traditionally associated with secrecy and furtive activity in war and peace. Scarlet and gold refer to mission decorations and awards, the Meritorious Unit Citation and campaign credit for action in Iraq and Southwest Asia. The laurel wreath symbolizes honor and achievement and again recalls the unit's campaign action in Iraq. The chess-piece, the knight, versatile and resourceful in the game, refers to the speed and accuracy noted in the unit motto "Accurate Fast All Source." Black denotes strength, purpose, and dedication to accomplish mission requirements.
The coat of arms was approved on 21 September 1993. It was amended to correct the symbolism on 24 November 1993. It was amended to add a crest on 3 September 2009.
