Abstract : Timely and accurate operational intelligence is critical to all Air Force combat operations. The key to timely receipt of accurate intelligence ir properly stated, validated, and prioritized requirements. Air Force operators and commanders need a better understanding of intelligence to enable them to play an active role in development of those requirements. This article explains the intelligence cycle, describes the importance of the operations/intelligence interface, and recommends some ways to improve operations' awareness. Only with a truly interactive operations/intelligence interface, can we expect to take full advantage of the intelligence community's capabilities to support use.
