513th Military Intelligence Group deploys to Grenada


Oct. 27, 1983
Twenty-nine years ago this week, 23 technical intelligence analysts from the 513th Military Intelligence Group deployed to the Caribbean Island of Grenada in support of Operation Urgent Fury. On Oct. 27, two days after the initial invasion, the Army first tasked the U. S. Army Intelligence and Security Command to deploy the analysts to support XVIII Airborne Corps.

Over the ensuing weeks, the 513th MI Group deployed the analysts from the 203d Military Intelligence Battalion to identify, collect and sort captured foreign equipment.

Most of the deployed 203d Soldiers formed a modified Captured Material Exploitation Center. They operated a collection point that would ship the significant items to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., for more detailed examination.

Unfortunately, widespread pilfering and destruction of some of the other Soviet-made equipment limited the Army’s abilities to fully exploit the material. Nevertheless, the TECHINT analysts were able to ship off ZU-23 anti-aircraft guns, 82 millimeter mortars and a BRDM-2 reconnaissance vehicle. The last of the 513th’s analysts departed Grenada in early December 1983.
