Dagger Complex

The Dagger Complex as 180°-Panorama

The Dagger Complex is a US military base in Darmstadt (Germany), close to Griesheim. It is located on the Eberstädter Weg, south of the August-Euler-Airfield.

The complex is operated by the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) on behalf of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA).[1] Building 4373 within the complex houses the NSA's European Cryptologic Center (ECC), the agency's principal SIGINT processing, analysis and reporting center in Germany.[2]


In 1999 about 50 INSCOM-Units were moved from Bad Aibling Station to Darmstadt. Together with INSCOM, the 66th Military Intelligence Brigade was moved to Darmstadt until summer of 2004.[3]

The facility is slated to be relocated to a Consolidated Intelligence Center at Lucius D. Clay Kaserne in Wiesbaden-Erbenheim in 2015.[4][5]

In 2015, the Peng Collective operated a airborne leaflet strike over the facility as part of their Intelexit program, to call the employees to quit their job in case of ethical or psychological distress.[6] Shortly after the drop of the leaflets, the associations website was blocked on computers within the Complex.[7]
