OSIL The Open-Source Intelligence Laboratory (OSIL) at Mississippi State University aims to combine rigorous research methods with open-source intelligence (OSINT) data gathering to increase the capabilities and effectiveness of practitioners in the national security community. Our unique partnerships with OSINT resources bolster our ability to create a multidisciplinary approach to OSINT use cases.

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 practitioners within the field. OSIL develops proprietary OSINT analysis tools for use by academic collaborators and funders. If you would like to collaborate with us on a project, feel free to contact us.
