Abstract:

The case study of intelligence support to Operations Desert ShieldStorm is significant for future operations, as warfighting CINCs will confront all or some of the same issues in future conflicts, Issues of I and W and Response, BDA, JIC architecture, and Interoperability are examined. Problems were encountered because neither the CINC and his staff, nor the intelligence community anticipated or initially understood the problem of supporting a unified commander in a mid to high intensity conflict, CINCs in future conflicts must be prepared to act on uncertain I and W and BDA. Intelligence support can be improved by implementation of doctrine, improved planning, and realistic exercises.
