Community Overview - Intelligence (INTEL) is a Restricted Line community within the Information Warfare Community. Intelligence Officers are the Navy's focal point for understanding the enemy's capability and intent.
Mission - Know your enemy! Intelligence officers provide accurate assessments of enemy capability and intentions, in sufficient time for the commander to take effective measures at strategic, operational or tactical level. Assessments are derived from technical and human penetration of the enemy and through a deep understanding of the adversary acquired through analytical rigor and expertise.
Guiding Principles - (1) Counter the Enemy's Operational & Information Security: The key to foreknowledge of the enemy and its intentions is deep access into each target to gain reliable insight. To achieve this end, we will aggressively pursue a wide range of traditional and non-traditional operations.
(2) Excel in All-Source & Predictive Analysis: Our ability to provide forward-leaning, all-source assessments to influence and drive action is one of our most valued contributions to national security. The context, nuance, and insight provided by our deep expertise in regional, technical, and functional areas is what separates intelligence from mere information.
(3) Understand & Communicate the Threat: We must provide commanders a deep and comprehensive understanding of the threats facing our Navy and our nation. We must remain abreast of emerging technologies and intentions as well as the most significant security challenges facing our nation.
