Historical Data Cards were used to record the organizational history of units within the Army. This card was provided to Robert Bolin by the US Army Institute of Heraldry in 1985.

The Technical Intelligence Field Agency, ACSI, was a small, special-purpose military unit created in 1960 to coordinate the intelligence activities of the Army technical services. It was directly subordinate to the Army Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence (ACSI), the senior intelligence official in the Army General Staff. In 1960, the Army technical intelligence activities were:

  • The US Army Chemical Corps Intelligence Agency,
  • The US Army Medical Information and Intelligence Agency,
  • The US Army Ordnance Technical Intelligence Agency,
  • The US Army Signal Corps Intelligence Agency,
  • The US Army Transportation Intelligence Agency, and
  • The US Army Quartermaster Intelligence Agency.

As well as several organizations within the US Army Corps of Engineers.

The Technical Intelligence Field Agency was discontinued when most of the Army technical services were reorganized out of existence in 1962.
