Abstract : The national intelligence community is making dramatic organizational and operational shifts in an attempt to revolutionize its traditional relationship with the deployed operational commander. Forced by political and fiscal realities, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency are reorganizing, restructuring and re-tooling their capabilities to be more responsive to the increasingly complex needs of the warfighter. In light of these transformations, warfighters are becoming educated on the capabilities and limitations of national intelligence. Technological breakthroughs are bringing together command, control, communications, computers and intelligence (C41) systems into a streamlined joint global network concept called C41 for the warrior. As a result, analytical products of the future will be tailored to the needs of Joint Force Commander, but only if the warfighter stays actively engaged in, and committed to rebuilding a new national intelligence support structure.
