Nationale SIGINT Organisatie
Nationale SIGINT Organisatie (NSO) was the Dutch signals
intelligence (SIGINT) organisation, which was part of the Ministry of
Defence, but works for both the military intelligence and security
MIVD as for its civilian counterpart AIVD.
The NSO was established in 2003, in the aftermath of the September 11,
2001 attacks and became fully operational in 2007. Early 2014, the NSO
merged into the newly created
Joint Sigint Cyber Unit
Joint Sigint Cyber Unit (JSCU).
The facilities of the NSO were a high frequency radio interception
Eibergen in the
Berkelland municipality, and a satellite
ground station in Burum in the
Kollumerland c.a. municipality.
There are also some mobile SIGINT units which can be deployed at
military operations abroad. The operation of both listening stations
and the mobile units has been taken over by the JSCU.
