Commanders drive the intelligence process. First, 2-1.4 operations support to planning requires collection to develop a large volume of basic intelligence and broad-scope estimates used to develop and analyze courses of action. The intelligence running estimate ensures commanders have the intelligence they need to conduct offensive operations with minimum risk of surprise.

They determine what joint assets are available by conducting collaboration and coordination early in the planning process. Plans and orders provide information collection tasks to be accomplished and inform units of fj requirements for intelligence operations. Task descriptions have been revised to incorporate doctrine on information collection and other changes made by ADRP Several examples in the following paragraphs will guide the intelligence officer when preparing an ISR strategy and intelligence architectures for each type of operation.

Typically, Commanders were given six to eight hours to dynamically re-task the company to support host nation battalion level operations. National- and theater-level intelligence products are often required at a lower echelon than is normally associated with support to conventional forces. The intelligence officer is responsible for ensuring that the intelligence warfighting function operates smoothly and efficiently so that the commander receives accurate, timely, and relevant information.

This task includes performing chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear CBRN reconnaissance; and the tactical aspects of special operations forces reconnaissance. The tactical commander must consider both conventional and special operations capabilities and limitations, particularly in the areas of tactical mission command and sustainment.

For the intelligence officer, the focus is on the relationship of ISR assets to other friendly forces, the terrain and weather, and the enemy. Joint ISR and Army information collection responsibilities Other assets that collect information to satisfy intelligence requirements include national, joint, and multinational resources available through requests for collection and requests for support. COISTs use information derived from all intelligence disciplines to determine changes in enemy capabilities, vulnerabilities, and probable courses of action.


The list of CCIRs constantly 2-194. as commanders add and delete individual requirements throughout an operation based on the information needed for specific fmm. This process continues until the requirement is satisfied, the intelligence is no longer needed, or it is determined that the requirement cannot be satisfied.

Additionally, fk forces help meet other requirements, including operational missions in response to a crisis or contingency, operations support, theater security cooperation activities, and bilateral or multilateral military exercises.

The intelligence officer is the principal staff officer responsible for gathering data and information and turning them into intelligence for the commander. At division and higher echelons, there are intelligence duty positions which are responsible for ISR planning and operations. This idea applies the principles of mission command with the art of command and science of control in order to integrate the warfighting functions.

Conforming to this guidance is essential to maximize combat effectiveness, minimize the risk of fratricide, and assure deconfliction. With MI collection assets from various echelons operating in multiple AOs, effective liaison ensures the required coordination between units occurs.

fj The source selection process allows for the identification of the most likely source of information, minimizing the uncertainty of the access and placement of sources. Technically, these are initial information requirements for each COA.

See FM for further explanation of the intelligence process. Human intelligence HUMINT collectors some of the best sensors for counterinsurgency and stability operations when they are properly focused by detailed collection requirements and supported by all-source analysis. When considered during the ISR planning, remember that HUMINT collection availability and responsiveness is linked to geographic access, support relationships, force protection restrictions, and workload.

Establishing the communications network involves many complex technical issues. ISR assets belonging other units, agencies, or organizations may have limited availability and are likely to receive 2-1.4 priorities from their respective commanders. The MI company plans for and coordinates some important maneuver and fires considerations with many different units and headquarters in order to conduct operations.


Terrain management is the process of allocating terrain by establishing areas of operations, designating assembly areas, and specifying locations for units and activities to deconflict activities that might interfere with each other ADRP Therefore, intelligence support for SOF requires a thorough understanding of special operations requirements at the tactical level.

The intelligence staff performs most of the tasks associated with the plan and direct step. Due to the complexity of intelligence operations, the staff must know and consider practical capabilities and limitations of all unit organic assets. All-source intelligence analysts and staff rely on the distributed PED enablers sent forward with collectors and a federated analytical approach.

Intelligence is a critical underpinning for each operations process activity. This approximation is determined by the intersection of two lines of bearing and is referred to as a cut. The “prisoners to products” mentality is certainly a pitfall and can consume the COIST in what we mf consider Staff type work. The Doctrine Dilemma There have been improvements during the last eight years involving the development and implementation of COIST doctrine, but the concept is still not formalized in many cm formations.

ETIOV is a tool used by the intelligence and operations officers to achieve synchronization and integration of ISR activities into the overall plan.

If these assets are decisively engaged, collection stops and a battle for survival begins. The operational environment evolves as the campaign or operations progress.

Table on page describes the relationship of IPB to intelligence operations. Using the intelligence survey, intelligence officers determine what their communications needs for deployed intelligence operations. For example, for a HUMINT collector processing involves reviewing the results of a source meeting to determine and analyze if any of the information meets reporting criteria and then completing the appropriate report.

The MI company provides continual input for the BCT commander by maintaining the threat portion of the common operational picture. As the company leadership develops a tentative plan, the COIST refines battalion products, creating detailed situation and event templates.

Additionally, intelligence staffs consider communications requirements from the asset to the command post. Mission, resources 2-119.4 time determine how the commander organizes his command post and staff.

Commanders must be closely involved in and knowledgeable of ISR during stability operations.
