I think your eyeball article on the Ft Meade, MD SIGINT facility is actually the Ft. Meade DSCS operations center, a satellite communications control facility.

There is unclassified information on this facility at:

The DSCS OC is run by the 1st Satellite Control Battalion of the 1st Space Brigade, US Army.

This is titled as "Ft. Meade SIGINT Operations Center" as a guess by Cryptome, though the facility may have more general purposes. James Bamford in The Puzzle Palace (1982) writes of a SIGINT unit stationed near NSA headquarters which targets foreign embassies in the Washington DC area. More accurate information on this facility welcomed ; send to

There are Regional SIGINT Operations Center (RSOC) units stationed at Ft. Meade similar to those serving at other RSOCs. A March 2002 official list of Naval Security Group Activity (NSGA) units shows the Naval Security Group Command and a NSGA unit at Ft. Meade (though there may be others not listed for secrecy purposes):

DSCS Operations Center
