Open Source Intelligence Laboratory

OSIL The Open Source Intelligence Laboratory (OSIL) at Mississippi State University aims to intersect rigorous research methods with open source intelligence data (OSINT) gathering to increase the capability, effectiveness, and efficiency of intelligence communities through scholarship and policy. Our unique partnerships with OSINT practitioners bolster our ability to create a multidisciplinary approach to OSINT analysis and implementation.

OSIL also serves as an objective, institutional resource for policy, legal, ethical, and practical questions regarding OSINT, and provides tailored training on our innovative strategies for those who work within the field. OSIL develops proprietary analysis tools specific to OSINT for use by academic collaborators and funders. If you would like to collaborate with us on a project, feel free to contact us.
