The increasing sophistication of intelligence collection and analysis systems has given US decision makers a powerful tool to evaluate the actions and intentions of our potential adversaries. At the same time, however, these advances have in some respects increased our susceptability to the skillful use of cover and deception techniques. Throughout history, the potential success of Cover and Deception C D operations has been determined soley by the skill of the practitioner, regardless of the sophistication of the intended victim in conducting C D operations. Today, we face in the Soviet Union a nation which has both recognized the importance of C D and has over the years demonstrated an impressive capability to deceive and mislead both its intended victims and the US and its allies. This paper outlines the salient characteristics of C D, Soviet doctrine and application and some of the techniques which could be used to uncover and defeat deception.
