Abstract : This monograph examines the heavy division Military Intelligence (MI) battalion's capability to provide the division commander accurate and timely information for tactical decisionmaking. The monograph begins by discussing why modern war and Army doctrine generate specific intelligence requirements for division commanders. Based on these requirements, the author offers a decisionmaking paradigm to describe the interaction between collecting information and orienting the commander to the enemy's intentions. Next, the monograph reviews the role intelligence doctrine--especially Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield--plays in translating formation into intelligence.
