Who We Are

Founded in 1985, NIP is a nonprofit organization incorporated to enhance awareness of the mission and vital functions of the naval intelligence community, as well as to foster camaraderie among members of NIP.

The goal of the Naval Intelligence Professionals (NIP) is to further the knowledge of the art of maritime intelligence, and to provide a vehicle whereby present and former members of NIP may be kept informed of developments in the naval intelligence community and of the activities and whereabouts of past shipmates.

Our members consist of active duty, retired and reserve officers, enlisted personnel, and civilians who serve or have served within the Naval Intelligence community, as well as those in certain other categories who qualify as a nonvoting subscriber.
