AirLand Battle doctrine has greatly increased the need for timely, accurate intelligence. It has also expanded intelligence responsibilities in time and space. This paper uses nine Battle Command Training Program evaluations, three Command and Control Evaluation System command evaluation reports, and Intelligence Center and School evaluation criteria to evaluate the individual and collective abilities of the intelligence system to provide timely, accurate intelligence to the commander. The paper reviews the mission, individual and collective training, personnel requirements, and automated system support which enables the intelligence system to function efficiently. This study concludes the current intelligence system cannot produce accurate, timely intelligence to support AirLand Battle doctrine because of the increased scope of the intelligence mission, inadequate individual and collective training, personnel shortages, and significant problems in fielding automated systems to help speed up the intelligence process.
