Army Intelligence Transformation

Tuesday April 29, 2008

What is it?

The Army is transforming military intelligence capabilities to enable decisive action by Army and joint commanders in an era of persistent conflict, complex environments and asymmetric challenges. The transformation effort integrates advanced fusion and "find, fix, finish exploit and analyze" capabilities into battle command processes at brigade combat team (BCT), battalion and company levels.

What has the Army done?

The military intelligence force has incorporated hard-earned field experience into the Army's ongoing modular-design transition by shifting the war-fighting nexus from division- to BCT-level operations and equipping Soldiers for the asymmetric fight. This transformation has created a significant increase in the size and capability of tactical intelligence elements, including the human intelligence force, and has accelerated the development and fielding of flat-network Distributed Common Ground System-Army capabilities down to battalion level, to ensure distributed, all-source data access.

SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

"Over the past year, we've looked very carefully and honestly at every aspect of healthcare delivery. And where we found room for improvement, the staff moved out, busted through any bureaucratic challenges, and set a new standard for care, for compassion and for healing."
