With the abrupt end to the 80 years war in 668 A.S, the Kaiser ordered the birth of a new sub-military organization tasked with intelligence gathering. With the Rheinland Imperial fleet suffering an enormous blow during the 80 years war, the Kaiser believed the tragic loss of life could have been avoided if they have proper intelligence on the sigma-13 system. The newly formed Rheinland Military did not have the financial means to conduct adequate military intelligence gathering so the Buro der Marineintelligenz was formed in 670 A.S.
The BDM was heavily involved in the Von Rohe's Day incident in 672 A.S. By order of the Kaiser, It infiltrated the protester groups and relayed back to the Military on key figure and plans. It began to target key individuals and they ‘disappeared’ one after the other. When the Kaiser stepped down, the BDM destroyed all case files and studies and became a ghost. The BDM was not of public knowledge since its creation, so when it got canceled they were not aware of any changes. When the heat from the revolutionaries died down, and a chancellor was put into office, the BDM came back from the shadows and was re-instated into the Rheinland government and armed forces.
With funding from the new Chancellor, the BDM was equipped with military hardware and it became the eyes and ears of Rheinland in Sirius. It began to infiltrate the other houses and key corporations in Sirius. Still unaware of public knowledge, the BDM relayed all data from groups in Sirius to the Chancellor and planned possible Rheinland occupation sites such as the Omegas and Omicrons.
At the end of the eighth century, a group of Rheinland researchers in the Omicron systems would stumble upon a most extraordinary cache. With the discovery of hundreds of artifacts, the Rheinland government and military quickly became infested by nomad organisms. The BDM was not officially known to have had any contaminated agents but during this time, one agent disappeared and his body and ship were never found. With the arrival of the Wilde, the BDM was tasked with its immediate destruction and months were spent on Wilde research and neutralization. This is still continuing to this day. When the Liberty – Rheinland war broke out, the BDM co-operated with the Rheinland Military on strike groups and recon work. The battles in Texas and Bremen resulted in many agents being killed in the line of duty and BDM recruitment in the Military began to enlarge its member count.
Further financial aid was pumped into the BDM during this time. In 818 A.S, when the discovery of the Gallia house was publicised, the Buro der Marineintelligenz was seen in the Tau systems and the Gallia-Sirius border world systems. When the Gallia Royal Navy began its march into the Tau Sector and it agreed a no-fire treat with Kusari so that it could assault Bretonia without disruptions, the BDM began to conduct operations to determine the threat Gallia would pose to Rheinland in the long run while local elements within Rheinland continued to operate against Liberty and it's interests, primarily by disrupting lines of supply within the House of Liberty. The Buro also continued it's work on Nomad-based Technologies despite the setbacks they received within Bremen due to a Libertonian assault on Munster Research Station.
The BDM uses many ships in their endeavors. They usually stick to Rheinland and Civilian ships except for occasional ship that deviates from regular vessel use due to specific mission parameters.
These craft are the guardians of Rheinland. When the call to arms is sounded, these are the craft that answer.
These are the movers of the BDM. While not a glamorous side of the BDM, bases have to get supplied somehow. These ships also come in handy if material delivery or extraction is needed in hostile territory.
These ships are used for covert ops into other houses.
