The Army Missile Command was the successor to the Army Ballistic Missile Agency at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, AL. The Army Ballistic Missile Agency was an organization that developed missiles for the Army and launched the first United States satellite, Explorer 1, on 31 January 1958. It was staffed, in part with Wernher von Braun and his team of scientists and engineers from Germany.

Missile Intelligence Agency was a special-purpose intelligence production organization concerned with missiles and related technology used or being developed by foreign armed forces.

In the Army system, a regulation numbered 10-1 often describes the organization and functions of an organization. This chapter describes the mission and functions of the Missile Intelligence Agency and of its various subdivisions.

Although this chapter is not dated, evidence in the text suggests that this regulation was issued about 1983.
