Abstract : Recent low intensity conflict or unconventional warfare operations have demonstrated the importance of providing fused, real time intelligence to the rapid-response warfighter. This study evaluates the functional structure of the intelligence agencies and their ability to use information processing and communications to provide intelligence to warfighting commanders. The study concludes that while problems in information processing and communications exist, the major problem in providing intelligence is the lack of a functional structure within the intelligence community. A possible solution to the lack of structure is offered as a recommendation.
