The All-Source Intelligence Cell was an intelligence-sharing unit in Northern Ireland, according to the Pat Finucane Review by Sir Desmond de Silva QC:

The All-Source Intelligence Cell was established in 1988 in order to improve the sharing of intelligence between the three agencies operating in Northern Ireland. Army, RUC and Security Service officers were based in the Cell and, in theory, had access to the intelligence product produced by all the agencies. My Report touches on the question of how effectively (or otherwise) this structure worked in the Nelson case.[1]
