FARGO, N.D. — The North Dakota Air National Guard’s intelligence gathering group has a new building at the Fargo base.?

KFGO radio reports that the $7.3 million, 19,000-square-feet facility will house 200 personnel who collect and analyze information involving enemy targets and communication networks.?

Wing Commander Col. Thomas Hatley says the desire for so-called target analysis has been a priority since the 9-11 attacks. He says the mission “touches points all over the world.”

The base’s intelligence squadrons had been working out of three separate buildings spread out across the base, including a former engine shop for F-16 fighter jets once flown by the 119th Wing.
