About us

We are Blue Team Intelligence

Blue Team Intelligence is a young consultancy company in the intelligence domain, founded in 2021 by Bas Ooink and Stefan Sijbesma. Together we bring a wealth of knowledge and (operational) experience from intelligence organizations within the government. With Blue Team Intelligence we support organizations and companies in their information operations, so that they can think, steer and work proactively. We do not provide a lengthy report that disappears in a drawer, but targeted tooling from which clients immediately reap the benefits in practice.

Bas Ooink

Bas is a human geographer and has worked for fourteen years for intelligence organizations in the armed forces and police. He has also gained extensive experience in mission areas. “I have extensive experience in the HUMINT (human intelligence) domain, and in intelligence processing and analysis at the tactical-operational level. My main expertise is geospatial analysis. As a senior analyst, I gave training to analysis teams and led and implemented innovation processes within the intelligence domain.”

Stefan Sijbesma

Stefan has extensive experience as an operational commander. In this role, he relied on strong descriptive, explanatory, and predictive intelligence products. “Because of this position I know the operational needs of organizations like no other. I am seasoned as an analyst and manager in the intelligence world, and I also have extensive experience in implementing innovation processes within the intelligence domain.”

Multidisciplinary approach

We opt for a creative, multidisciplinary approach, in which we apply scientific knowledge in practice. Together we form the heart of Blue Team Intelligence. Depending on the wishes of the client and the nature of the assignment, we can make use of a network of analysts, intelligence specialists and ICT professionals. We also work together with a number of permanent partner companies.

Partner of Esri

Because of our unique approach to predictive analytics and our application of intelligence in the geographic domain, Blue Team Intelligence has partnered  with GIS software company Esri. We have been included in their startup program since March 2022. Blue Team intelligence offers you solutions to collect, process and offer geographical data in an intuitive manner. With this partnership, we can leverage the existing capabilities of ArcGIS to support you.

 

“Blue Team Intelligence has unique knowledge and experience in the field of the integral security domain, intelligence and investigation. A domain in which our (potential) customers often have specific questions. In Blue Team Intelligence we have found a partner who can use its expertise to support these customers.”

supporting civil society organisations

We work together with a number of social organizations by offering our services free of charge. For example, we support the Veteran Search Team in carrying out the (geographical) intelligence process in the search for missing persons.

“The discrete and accurate working method of Blue Team Intelligence is an absolute win for any geo-related issue. For us as a Veteran Search Team, we previously only gained insight into the search areas when we were actually in the field. Blue Team Intelligence therefore developed an application especially for us with which we can plan and monitor searches efficiently. Now we know exactly in which environment we will be entering, so that we can optimally prepare for a search. The Blue Team Intelligence helpdesk is available for us 24/7.”

 

Dennis van der Kraats, 

Chairman Veteran Search Team 

On July 1, 2021, Blue Team Intelligence supported a project in the context of social service. In collaboration with Identitycraft , we helped young people to re-map the trenches from the First World War on the “Edense heide” in the Netherlands.

The Nationaal Monument Kamp Amersfoort Foundation keeps the memory of the former concentration camp “Kamp Amersfoort” and its victims alive, so that future generations can learn from this. The foundation has the difficult task of reconstructing the past on the basis of scattered and lost documents. Every detail can be decisive in locating an anonymous field grave or the foundation of a fuel cellar. Blue Team Intelligence supports this foundation with geographical analyses. In this blog we describe the reconstruction of a railway tunnel in the nearby shooting range using two watercolours.
