Abstract:

This publication establishes doctrinal guidance on the provision of intelligence products, services, and support to joint operations. It provides the fundamentals of joint intelligence operations, addressing organization of joint intelligence forces, responsibilities, and command relationships. The focus will be joint intelligence support to combatant commanders revolving around the phases of the intelligence cycle planning and direction, collection, processing and exploitation, production dissemination and integration and evaluation. Finally, personnel, physical, operations and communications security considerations will be addressed. Joint intelligence doctrine defines the roles and relationships of intelligence organizations at the national level, in the combatant commands, and in the subordinate joint forces. The goal is to maximize the impact of intelligence while increasing effectiveness among the organizations that support the joint force commander JFC. Intelligence plays a critical role across the range of military operations from peace to war. Intelligence enables commanders at all levels to focus their combat power and resources and to provide force protection for those resources. Operations associated with military operations other than war focus on deterring war and promoting peace and can have rules of engagement requiring the adaptation of a new and complex set of operational responses. Intelligence resources at every echelon should be structured to provide support that is proactive, aggressive, predictive, and flexible. Successful conduct of information warfare operations also demands detailed intelligence support.
