Abstract:

The basic problem is the provision of the threat and intelligence data needed at the proper time and in the proper format. In order for this to happen, there must be a program for the systematic identification of intelligence requirements, production of documentation to satisfy those requirements, the distribution of the documents to the requestor and finally, responsible use of the data. The program must include all those commands and staffs involved in the material acquisition process. Such an Army-wide program does not exist. AMC has a systematic threat and intelligence support system. Its concept is sound and it has been proven workable for several years. The lessons learned and the experience gained in this area could be used throughout the material acquisition community. The ACSI should provide leadership and staff supervision in the development of improved threat and intelligence support and DCSOPS and DCSRDA should provide command emphasis relative to the use of those data. Recommendations are made relative to some specific points of improvement in the interface of threat and intelligence and the material acquisition process. Author
