Abstract : Today's Army finds itself increasingly involved in 'Operations Other Then War', specifically peacekeeping and peace enforcement operations. Effective intelligence support is essential for success in these operations. This monograph examines the doctrinal functions of intelligence and their applicability to peacekeeping and peace enforcement operations. The monograph first discusses the six doctrinal functions of intelligence; Indications and Warning, Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield, Situation Development, Force Protection, Target Development/Target Acquisition, and Battle Damage Assessment. Next historical cases are examined to determine the tactical intelligence requirements during peacekeeping/peace enforcement. Finally, the functions of intelligence are compared to identified intelligence requirements to determine their applicability.
