  • Operation STARLIGHT: A Signals Intelligence Success Story, 15 August 1965

    Aug 12, 2013

    Fort Huachuca, AZ. - Airborne Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) proved its value to US combatant commanders with the success of Operation STARLIGHT in August 1965. However, the Army had been utilizing direction-finding (DF) capabilities to locate enemy transmitters since as early as World War I. The concept was simple: upon acquiring a radio signal, DF stations within an established DF net would simultaneously take bearings on the transmission. The point where three or more lines crossed would result in a "fix." When the Army Security Agency's (ASA) 3d Radio Research Unit (RRU) arrived in Vietnam in 1961, they fully expected to follow the same process. The plan was set up a DF net at semi-permanent sites and pass targeting locations to mobile DF teams using AN/PRD-1s. The mobile teams would be able to get as close as five to fifteen miles from the enemy transmitters and produce the necessary fixes.

    On 11 July 1917, Major Dennis Nolan, Intelligence Chief in Pershing's American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) in World War I, wrote to the Chief of Staff of the Army requesting …"that fifty secret service men, who have had training in police work [and] who speak French fluently, be enlisted as sergeants of infantry in service in intelligence work and sent to France at an early date. As these men will be in intimate relation with the French people, it is a matter of great importance that they not only speak the language but are men of high character." Accordingly, a month later, the War Department authorized the creation of the Corps of Intelligence Police, or CIP. Finally, counterintelligence, which had been practiced since the inception of the American Army, was given official recognition as a professional discipline in an organized intelligence section, or G2.
