Approved For Release MWA : R= DP96-00788R001500100017-8 IAGPA-F-SD 13 Jul 84 SUBJECT: (U) Possible Courses of Action in Event of INSCOM CENTER LANE Project (ICLP) Cancellation. ISSUE: (U) To inform the Chief of Staff, USAINSCOM concerning implications of cancellation of ICLP on 30 September 1984, and possible alternative courses of action to mitigate adverse impact. 1. (U) Dissolve INSCOM CENTER LANE Project (ICLP) on 30 September 1984. This would: a. (U) Preclude a timely and fair reassignment program for personnel assigned to ICLP who may not wish or be able to 'participate in some further edition or continuation of the program. b. (S/CL-1/NOFORN) Result in mid-contract cancellation of on-going work with SRI-International, to include training already begun for five personnel. Not only would the balance of the funds invested by the government be unrecoverable (since they are "black" P-6 funds), but should resources and management of the program later be transferred to another organization such as DIA or NSA, the procedure would be made more difficult because of loss of momentum and training interruption. c. (S/CL-2/NOFORN) Preclude preparation of comprehensive after-action reports of INSCOM psychoenergetic efforts which will be essential when the program is either transferred or resurrected. 2. (U) Cease ICLP operations on 30 September 1984, but allow completion of outstanding contracts and training (on or about 31 December 1984). This would: WARNING NOTICE: CENTER LANE SPECIAL ACCESS PROGRAM RESTRICT DISSEMINATION TO THOSE WITH VERIFIED ACCESS TO CATEGORY THREE (3) SENSITIVE INTELLIGENCE SOURCES AND METHODS INVOLVED NOT RELEASABLE TO FOREIGN NATIONALS CLASSIFIED BY: CDR, INSCOM DECLASSIFY ON: OADR COPY OF 4 COPIES Approved For Release 2nnn / $ rclEjP96OO788ROOl 500100017-8 Approved For Release 201J0T0'8/08 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001500100017-8 IAGPA-F-SD 13 Jul 84 SUBJECT: (U) Possible courses of action in event of INSCOM CENTER LANE Project (ICLP) cancellation. a. (U) Allow the reassignment of ICLP personnel on an equitable basis. b. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Permit trainees to complete training and become 60% operational. c. (S/CL-1/NOFORN) Permit timely and undisrupted transfer of ICLP to a national agency such as DIA or NSA. d. (U) Permit preparation of comprehensive after action reports, thereby preserving vital institutional knowledge and technical details that would otherwise be permanently lost. 3. (U) Recommended course of action: i3 ?-4-v .TG (U) If CG, INSCOM makes a decision to cancel ICLP, recommend course of 1 SA/ action 2, and approval be granted for the ICLP Project Manager to initiate 4 QJC+u action with DIA, NSA, etc. to transfer the capability with the least 1A possible adverse impact. 4. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The ideal course of action, would be continuation of ICLP as a USAINSCOM intelligence collection project as is, with appropriate interfacing with the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command, for phenomena validation and technology extension.
