Mr. Jonathan Velasquez, CITP Program Manager, Pragmatics, Inc.

The National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Targeting Program (CITP) is an innovative, critical, mission-enhancing and life-saving program. Jonathan Velasquez, as the CITP Program Manager, has developed and implemented strategies that provide cutting edge intelligence products and methods and provides timely, relevant and accurate C-IED targeting intelligence to the war-fighter. While doing so, he and his team have introduced significant gains in efficiency, process improvements, and cost savings to the NGIC CITP. Following the kick-off meeting for the for the first ever NGIC CITP Off-site, the Director CITP, Mr. Robert Vitrikas made the following statement: "Jonathan and his team are a force multiplier in providing support to CITP".


Within the Dept. of Defense (DOD) and Intelligence Communities (IC), Pragmatics, Inc. led by Jonathan Velasquez, as the Program manager for CITP, provides intelligence analysis and operational oversight support involving process development and improvement, acquisition management, and liaison Support.  Due to Jon's ground breaking effort the CITP is considered a leading program in the development of information in areas of intelligence analysis, operations, planning, and policy development in support of the Counter IED effort.  Jonathan leads the development of CITP Analysis and Targeting Production for the NGIC and DoD.  Pragmatics' operations directly support the Counter IED effort across the globe and the exchange of intelligence information throughout the IC and Inter-Agency.
