Abstract : During the Gulf War at the beginning of 1991, the most lethal and precious weapon was not missiles, fighters, tanks, or warships. It was, however, the electronic intelligence system which multinational units, led by the U.S., deployed in the Gulf region. This intelligence system was large scale, technologically advanced, well organized, and had high operational efficiency. For the command structures at various levels of multinational units, it supplied complete, accurate, timely, and continuous information on relevent Iraqi forces, guaranteeing needs associated with the drawing up of operational plans and the implementation of commands. it played a key role in securing victory in the war. The Gulf War displayed in a concentrated way the characteristics of the modern digitized battlefield. U.S. forces recognized that the Gulf War proclaimed the end of an era in warfare, marking the advent of the C3I era. As a result, analysis of electronic intelligence assurance systems has very great significance with regard to dealing with battlefields under future high technology conditions.
