COLLECTION (THE TECHNICAL/NON-TECHNICAL BALANCE AND THE COLLECTION STRATEGIST) 

 

Overview

Today’s intelligence analyst must draw from a plethora of data sources and collection capabilities.  The relationship between the analyst and the current collection manager role is evolving. This is a connection which requires the collection manager to assess a broader set of collection capabilities and develop strategies to best address intelligence problems is required. 

 

Focus Questions

  • Is there enough commonality and synergy for the national and tactical intelligence missions to achieve a balance in collection capabilities?
  • Can the collection strategist concept bridge these missions and what are the potential roadblocks to establishing the collection strategist as a nexus for both communities?
  • Given the breadth of collection resources available, is there a methodology in place for collection strategists to attempt to optimize results?
  • Where do you feel the nation’s intelligence industrial base can best help?

SESSION ONE:  THE COLLECTION ENVIRONMENT

Overview

Today's collection missions run the spectrum of space, airborne and terrestrial – the value of which has been hotly contested for years.  Session one will explore this debate in the context of support to war-fighting operations and the relevance of fused information from national and tactical collection missions.  Speakers will discuss the range of collection sources from airborne and space SIGINT to HUMINT to OSINT and the degree to which they are effectively integrated.  The panelists will also discuss lessons learned about national and tactical intelligence collection requirements and gaps based on recent operational experiences. 

 

Focus Questions

  • Collection payoff – where is the biggest bang for the buck today?
  • How can intelligence value be most effectively evaluated?
  • Technical and non-technical collection – can they coexist?  If so, how best?

TACTICAL BENEFIT (DECONFLICTING SOURCES OF INTELLIGENCE – LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE FIELD)

 

Overview

The conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have tested the depth of intelligence support to the combatant commander.  At the same time, the need for worldwide situational awareness has not eased.  Today’s intelligence collection managers and analysts must strike a balance across multiple sources of information and ensure availability of collection and production resources. The field operational tempo presents unique challenges for intelligence professionals across the national and tactical communities.

 

Focus Questions

  • Where have you observed the greatest challenge for collection tasking deconfliction?
  • Do tactical assets represent a realistic resource for national tasking?
  • Are national assets and their infrastructure doing a necessary but not sufficient job in tactical arenas?  What would you change?
  • Given the looming budget environment, what pitfalls should be avoided with respect to intelligence resource consolidation?
  • Where do you feel the nation’s intelligence industrial base can best help?

SESSION FOUR: FUTURE COLLECTION

 

Overview

It is highly likely that the future will bring a significant increase in the number and diversity of threats affecting US national interests.  Concurrently, the volume of relevant information will continue grow exponentially, while technology will bring new methods by which that information is created and disseminated. Together these changes will place great stress on US collection capabilities and increase competition for scarce investment funds. This final session will describe the major changes expected and suggest how the Intelligence Community might manage these changes in a constrained budget environment.

 

Focus Questions

  • How has the evolution of the threats the nation faces affected what needs to be collected and how it should be collected? 
  • What technologies do we need to collect this information and is it currently available, including from the private sector?
  • Does the Intelligence Community have the resources to acquire these capabilities in the next three-five years?  Is there agreement on the path to follow?  Who should take the lead?
