(Imperial Era) ATIS Imperial Bureau of Naval Intelligence
IBNI is the Special Operations and Intelligence branch of the Aquarian Imperial Navy. The organisation is a government-controlled, independent command structure tasked with providing the AIN with up to date intelligence on any and all points of interest that they require. IBNI operates its own Fleet Command structure and several Task Forces within the sub-divisions of each of the AIN's Sector Fleets. While they operate under the flag of the Imperial Navy, IBNI Task Forces report directly to the ATIS Council, and even Red Sector itself. The primary goal of the IBNI Task Force is to operate specialist remote monitoring, early warning, reconnaissance, espionage and advanced electronic and cyber warfare systems alongside the standard ranks of the ATIS Imperial Navy, allowing greater flexibility in dynamic deployment situations.
