  • 2002
    Age 55
    After retiring from the Navy in 2002, Vice Admiral Wilson joined Alliant Techsystems, Inc. (ATK) as President of ATK Missile Systems Company in Woodland Hills, California, and was elected a corporate Senior Vice President in August 2003.
    More Details Hide Details
    Following retirement from the Navy in 2002, he served in several senior executive roles for Alliant Techsystems, Inc. (ATK): President of ATK Missile Systems, Corporate Senior Vice President and President of ATK Precision Systems Group, and ATK Senior Vice President for Tidewater Operations, retiring from ATK in 2009.
    More Details Hide Details Vice Admiral Wilson and his wife, Ann, have three sons: Jeffrey, Gregory, and Matthew. Thomas Ray Wilson was born on March 4, 1946 in Columbus, Ohio, and raised in the small community of Groveport, Ohio. As a youth he spent much time working on family farms, acquiring a lifelong interest in agriculture and rural life in America.
  • 2001
    Age 54
    Vice Admiral Wilson is also the recipient of the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal, the Central Intelligence Agency Director’s Award, and the Defense Intelligence Agency Director’s Award. In 2001 he received the NAACP’S Meritorious Service Award for his leadership of DIA’s nationally recognized Diversity and Equal Opportunity programs.
    More Details Hide Details
    While the continually expanding Global War on Terrorism was the central area of operational concentration for the balance of Admiral Wilson’s tenure as DIA Director, additional significant and important issues were addressed aggressively, including a counterintelligence effort that resulted in the arrest of a Cuban spy inside DIA and intense focus on huge and dangerous military buildups on the India-Pakistan border following a militant attack on the Indian parliament on 13 Dec 2001.
    More Details Hide Details With regard to the latter issue, Admiral Wilson traveled to both countries in early 2002 for consultations with their military intelligence services aimed at explaining U.S. views of the dangers inherent in the buildups and chances for miscalculations that could potentially result in nuclear exchanges. Additionally, intense intelligence preparations for what was to eventually become Operation Iraqi Freedom began in 2002. A final issue of extraordinary importance – one that commanded VADM Wilson’s personal attention and effort during his time as DIA Director – was the issue of LCDR Michael Scott Speicher who was shot down on the first night of Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and was the only military member not accounted for when that conflict was concluded. During this period of time DIA became the primary intelligence community organization leading efforts to learn the truth of this case, which was not finalized until his remains were recovered on 2 August 2009 and positively identified shortly thereafter.
    While the attacks of 11 September 2001 were the largest and most significant, they were preceded on 12 October 2000 by an Al Qaida suicide bombing of USS COLE (DDG 67) in the Yemeni port Aden, killing seventeen American sailors and injuring thirty-nine others. This bombing resulted in an accelerated shifting of intelligence resources to the terrorism crisis that had begun after the African embassy bombings in 1998. The attacks of 11 September 2001 thrust DIA into the war on terrorism in a personal, emotional, and unanticipated way as seven DIA civilian employees were killed and eight more (seven civilian and one military) DIA personnel were wounded when a hijacked American Airlines Boeing 757 was crashed into the Pentagon.
    More Details Hide Details The immediate aftermath of this tragedy was for the agency a painful and demanding period of time as DIA’s workforce did everything possible for the families of the dead and cared for the wounded and their families. The agency simultaneously “spun up” operationally to take the battle to Al Qaida on a worldwide basis, beginning with the start of Operation Enduring Freedom strikes against Al Qaida and Taliban strongholds in Afghanistan on 7 October 2001.
  • 1999
    Age 52
    He assumed that post on 27 July 1999, relieving Lieutenant General Patrick M. Hughes, US Army.
    More Details Hide Details As DIA Director VADM Wilson also served as the Chairman of the Military Intelligence Board (MIB) consisting of the military service intelligence chiefs, the combatant command directors of intelligence, and the directors of the intelligence community’s designated combat support agencies - - the de facto Director of Military Intelligence. In this role he immediately convened the MIB in executive session and encouraged the senior leaders to work together to identify the four or five most pressing challenges facing the military intelligence community, assemble joint teams and leaders to put together plans and guide united efforts to address those challenges, and to conduct sustained campaigns aimed at solving intractable problems and implementing new doctrine, tactics, techniques and procedures appropriate for the next century. The idea was to collectively narrow down the agenda to the agreed upon most pressing challenges, obtain military intelligence leadership “buy-in,” and conduct a concentrated, sustained campaign to achieve success without getting diverted by the “here and now.”
    In May 1999 Thomas R. Wilson was nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate for promotion to Vice Admiral and appointment as the 13th Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1998
    Age 51
    The Joint Staff was almost continually engaged in high paced contingency operations during RADM Wilson’s time as J2 in 1998-99: Daily No Fly Zone enforcement over Iraq, the conduct of a four-day strike campaign (Operation Desert Fox) against Iraq in December 1998, and the escalating crisis in Kosovo culminating in a 78-day NATO bombing campaign (Operation Allied Force) led by the U.S. against the former Yugoslavia from 24 March – 11 June 1999. Terrorism against the United States also escalated significantly during this period of time when Al Qaida operatives in Kenya and Tanzania conducted suicide bombing attacks against United States embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam on 7 August 1998.
    More Details Hide Details This resulted in strike operations conducted less than two weeks later by U.S. forces against Al Qaida targets in Afghanistan and Sudan. In addition to coordinating intelligence support both up and down the chain of command, the Joint Staff intelligence team was intricately engaged in the analysis, selection, targeting, and battle damage assessments (BDA) associated with the respective strike campaigns. RADM Wilson frequently provided targeting and BDA briefings to the President, his national security team, and relevant congressional committees. He also was one of the primary Pentagon spokesmen who regularly briefed the national press corps on ongoing strike operations and BDA.
  • 1997
    Age 50
    In September 1997 RDML Wilson commenced a short tour of duty at the Central Intelligence Agency where he served as the Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Military Support.
    More Details Hide Details In addition to coordinating intelligence support operations between the Central Intelligence Agency and United States Military Combatant Commands, RDML Wilson served as the DCI representative to the Military Intelligence Board, regularly supported the DCI at the Principals’ Committee meetings of the National Security Council, and frequently represented the DCI at the Deputies’ Committee meetings of the same organization. He was promoted the Rear Admiral (upper half) during this tour of duty. In March 1998, at the recommendation of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and with the concurrence of the Secretary of Defense, RADM Wilson was assigned as the Joint Staff Director of Intelligence, J-2, a Defense Intelligence Agency billet operationally allocated to the Joint Staff. The J2 concurrently serves as the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Director of Current Intelligence Operations and is responsible for the operation of the National Military Joint Intelligence Center (NMJIC) which is collocated with the National Military Command Center. The Joint Staff J2 is charged with leading and directing current and crisis intelligence support for the Secretary of Defense and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and managing intelligence support for contingency operations, including targeting and battle damage assessment responsibilities, with the combatant commands.
  • FORTIES
  • 1994
    Age 47
    From November 1994 - September 1997 RDML Wilson was assigned as Vice Director for Intelligence (VJ2), The Joint Staff in the Pentagon.
    More Details Hide Details In his responsibility as the J-2’s principal deputy, he played a significant role in helping provide current and crisis intelligence support to senior civilian and uniformed military leadership in the Department of Defense. This support included providing daily intelligence briefings to the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (VCJCS), Assistant Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (ACJCS), and the following additional Joint Staff flag and general officers: Director and Vice Director Strategy and Plans (J-5), Vice Director (VDJS), and Vice Director for Operations (VJ3). He also conducted the daily intelligence briefing for the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy (USDP) and his entire staff. During this period of time, the U.S. military continued to be engaged in crisis operations around the world, including Operation Uphold Democracy in Haiti, conduct of Operation Northern and Southern Watch in Iraq, and United Nation Peacekeeping operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition to his current and crisis intelligence support responsibilities, RDML Wilson led the Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Joint Warfighting Capability Assessment (ISRJWCA) as a part of the newly established Joint Warfighting Capability Assessment process sponsored by the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) chaired by the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (VCJCS) and consisting of the Vice Chiefs of each of the military services. The ISRJWCA team, which consisted of representatives from the Joint Staff, all military services and all combat support intelligence agencies, conducted landmark analysis on the ISR requirements necessary to achieve “dominant battlespace awareness” over a range of contingency-type operational scenarios.
    Both of these Atlantic Command-developed systems were used to provide intelligence support to operational forces engaged in the Haiti intervention in 1994.
    More Details Hide Details In what was to become standard operating procedure later in the 90’s and throughout the first decade of the 2000s, the Haiti intervention featured the first use of JWICS in a command and control function, including regular JWICS teleconferences between the President, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, USCINCLANT and all of his component commanders (Forces Command, Air Combat Command, CINCLANTFLT, and COMARFORLANT), and operational commanders Haiti JTF Commander/18th Airborne Corps Commander/US SECOND Fleet Commander (all co-embarked on USS MOUNT WHITNEY), 10TH Mountain Division (embarked on USS DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER), JSOC (embarked on USS AMERICA), embarked Marine Amphibious forces, and Commander Joint Task Force Guantanamo Bay.
  • 1991
    Age 44
    In early 1991 Captain Wilson transferred to Norfolk, VA, where he assumed duties as Director of Intelligence (N-2) for the Atlantic Fleet.
    More Details Hide Details In this role he had responsibility for direction and oversight of intelligence training and deployment preparation for Atlantic Fleet carrier battle groups (including carrier air wings), amphibious ready groups, submarines, and maritime patrol aviation squadrons. He also had overall responsibility for the Norfolk-based naval intelligence commands that supported Atlantic Fleet operations - - Fleet Ocean Surveillance Center Atlantic (FOSICLANT) and Fleet Intelligence Center Europe and Atlantic (FICEURLANT). In 1991-92, as the impact of the end of the Cold War manifested itself in vastly reduced Russian (as opposed to Soviet) naval operations and submarine deployments into the Atlantic and Mediterranean, new, different requirements for the fleet became increasingly challenging, e.g. counterdrug surveillance and interdiction operations. As a result, CAPT Wilson developed the concept and initiated the proposal to convert some of the Navy’s ocean surveillance ships (T-AGOS) operated by the Military Sealift Command to counterdrug platforms and to do the same for some of the P-3 maritime patrol aircraft of the Atlantic Fleet. Under his leadership three STALWART class T-AGOS ships were modified for a drug interdiction mission. The underwater acoustic arrays were removed, and air-search radars, integrated display systems, sophisticated communications suites and other special mission equipment were installed to detect and monitor suspected drug traffickers. Counterdrug Upgrade P-3 aircraft were also modified during this period of time, to include communications upgrades and the addition of air-to-air radar systems to track and identify potential drug-smuggling aircraft.
  • 1989
    Age 42
    Returning to the United States for duty after five years overseas, CAPT Wilson reported to the Navy Staff at the Pentagon in July 1989 where he assumed duties as Special Assistant for Intelligence and Special Access Programs (SAPs) for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Naval Warfare Requirements (OP-07).
    More Details Hide Details In this position Captain Wilson coordinated the preparation of the Director of Naval Warfare for Special Program Review Group (SPRG) deliberations and decisions on the degree to which intelligence and highly classified developmental operational programs actually satisfied validated naval warfare requirements. This period of time included the run up to and conduct of Desert Storm combat operations against Iraq, during which Captain Wilson synchronized the transition of select high impact Special Access Programs from the later stages of development into highly successful early operational use in Desert Storm combat operations.
  • 1987
    Age 40

During this period of time the Seventh Fleet intelligence team developed and experimented with the concept of “OSIS (Ocean Surveillance Information System) Afloat,” which was the temporary assumption by Seventh Fleet on USS BLUE RIDGE of fleet intelligence support operations normally performed by Fleet Ocean Surveillance Information Facility Western Pacific (FOSIF WESTPAC) in Kamiseya, Japan. Commander SEVENTH Fleet conducted extensive deployments throughout the Western Pacific, including an historic port visit to Shanghai, China - - the first since World War II. CDR Wilson was promoted to Captain, USN during his tour of duty as SEVENTH Fleet N2.
