Abstract : Modern joint intelligence architectures are extraordinarily complex creations. Information age technology has greatly increased their capability, but has simultaneously increased the difficulty of planning and managing them. The intelligence architectures in Desert Storm, and all United States joint operations since then, have reflected significant architectural problems, resulting in various forms of dysfunction or potential dysfunction, as a result of unanticipated or unmanageable complexity. Numerous initiatives throughout the Defense community are working to minimize these problems, but the rapidity of technological change continues to pose architectural challenges to intelligence planners and operators.
