The intelligence cycle is a structured process, commonly applied in a military environment, and is used to gather information, convert it into relevant intelligence, and pass it to those who require it – the decisionmakers.
Why is it needed?
Due to the vast amount of data available, the intelligence cycle provides an order to the collection and information gathering process. It states exactly what needs to be collected, in what priority and when.
How is it used at Intelligence Fusion?
We use the intelligence cycle internally for various reasons. But most importantly, it helps us focus our collection efforts to best meet the needs of you and your organisation.
