Abstract:

The absence of an operational level Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield IPB for SOF, which fuses national and theater level intelligence with tactical intelligence, hinders the capability of a Joint Forces Commander JFC and Joint Task Force Commander JTF to effectively support the critical intelligence requests and requirements of a Joint Special Operations Task Force JSOTF and its SOF components.
