Sometimes, a quid pro quo may be involved. Citizens of democracies and the economy are already suffering the inconvenience and higher business costs of much tighter security. In reality, it is not a cycle, but a series of parallel activities.

Imagery intelligence IMINTfor instance, may depend on weather, satellite orbits or the ability of aircraft to elude ground ccifm, and time for analysis. According to Arthur S.

It lives in an area of uncertainty where the truth may be uncertain. Economic measures also may be used to pressure specific countries—for example, South Africa while it sustained a policy of apartheidor Sudan while there is widespread persecution in Darfur.

Intelligence agencies, working with national economic and diplomatic employees, can develop policy alternatives for negotiators. Conversely, security constraints may prevent the analyst from explaining exactly why a particular command decision might compromise existing intelligence gathering operations. Experience has shown that high level government needs to be aware of both clandestine and covert field activities in order to prevent them from interfering with one another, and with secret activities that may not be in the field.

Issues for Congress[13] for one policy review. However, it is in long-term analysis of familiar subjects and broad trends where secret information tends to be hanxbook critical and government analysts are, for the most part, no better and often not as good as their counterparts in academia and the private sector.


One basic model of the intelligence process is called the “intelligence cycle”. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. While initial news reports may be fragmentary, this particular part of OSINT is a powerful component of warning, but not necessarily of detailed analyses.

When the actor’s Boyd cycle dominates the opponent’s, the actor is acting repeatedly, based on reasoned choices, while the opponent is hndbook trying to determine what is happening.

What is needed most is a Washington-based interagency mechanism involving officials from intelligence, law enforcement, and foreign policy to sort out individual cases. This must be rectified if the intelligence community is to continue to produce the human intelligence that will surely be needed in the future.

Moreover, the danger can never be eliminated if intelligence analysts are involved, as they must be, in the policy process. Assassinations, however, are immediately known but, if the assassin escapes or is haandbook in action, the sponsor may never be known to any other than to the sponsor.

At the highest level of direction, rational policies, the effects of personalities, and culture can dominate the assignments given to the intelligence services. The activities of the intelligence cycle obtain and assemble information, convert it into intelligence and make it available to its users. All of this argues strongly against any organizational reforms that would isolate the collection agencies further or increase their autonomy.

Sensors people or systems collect data from the operational environment during the collection handbbook, which is then converted into information during the processing and exploitation phase.

And tragically, cdirm ordinary citizens are likely to die from transnational terrorism. Issue coordinators interact with these public officials to establish their core concerns and related information requirements. His model has four phases, which, while not usually stated in terms of the intelligence cycle, do relate to that cycle:.

Intelligence cycle management

Japan, with a history of blurred lines between industry and government, may regard a policy for them as perfectly ethical, which would be hanfbook in North America or Eastern Europe.


Retrieved from ” https: The question of what to do with the information, however, should be put before policymakers if it raises foreign policy concerns. Retrieved February 22, Eventually, actions taken, and their results, affect the senior commanders. The output of the intelligence cycle, if accepted, drives operations, which, in turn, produces new material to enter another iteration of the intelligence cycle. Observation could be an output of the collection phase, while orientation is an output of analysis.

In rare cases, intelligence is taken from such extremely sensitive sources that it cannot be used without exposing the methods or persons providing such intelligence. Asset recruiting Cell system Covert action Direct action Operational techniques.

Little, Brown and Company. The commander’s requirement, sometimes called “essential elements hanndbook intelligence” EEIsinitiates the intelligence cycle. Policy-makers—the president, his aides, the National Security Counciland other major departments and agencies of government—initiate requests for intelligence.

The more sensitive reconnaissance satellites may not be needed to get substantially correct imagery. In coalition warfare, not all sources may be identified outside that cell. At one time or another, a national or organizational intelligence process has broken down, thus causing failure in the cycle. To be sure, private citizens and corporations were involved, but there was a neat correspondence between the threat as defined and the federal government’s national security machinery that was developed to meet that threat.

Another aspect of analysis is the balance between current intelligence and long-term estimates. Intelligence services have failed to collect critical information.

Also, many estimates are likely to be less relevant to busy policy-makers, who must focus on the immediate. Clandestine and ccim operations share many attributes, but also have distinct differences. Oil companies have extensive information on world resources and energy demands.
