The raw inputs. 1s and 0s. Raw signals.



The data in a usable form. 1s and 0s in a spreadsheet with columns and rows.



Information that has been interpreted with a focus on the significance of the information.


What are the phases of the intelligence cycle?

Planning and Direction


Processing and Exploitation





Describe Planning and Direction

In this phase the mission and commander's intent is provided.



in this phase what you need to know to produce the commanders uncertainty regarding the mission is identified and codified into INR's and PIR's a collection plan is formulated an executed. What is collected is the raw data.


Processing and Exploitation

in this phase collect data is processed and converted into a usable form i.e. intelligence



in this phase of the Intel cycle information is converted into intelligence. The significance of the information in light of the mission is determined and Darius intelligence products are produced in order to convey that finished intelligence to consumers



in this phase finished intelligence products are disseminated to consumers.



in this phase intelligence products are utilized in support of contacting operations. This yours Asian will produce feedback feedback into the first phase of the Intel cycle as the cycle repeats for new missions on the faces of planning for missions.

describe divergent thinking about that alternative features

involves establishing the main question or problem and then brainstorming about forces and factors affecting the issue also involves building for future scenarios based on various extreme of drivers, priced from forces

describe critical thinking

an unnatural skilled that anyone can learn but requires practice good critical thinking skills given all of us the ability to think more clearly and see things were the way they are


describe the analytical process

analyze – all about gathering bits of information and determining their significance
synthesize – concerned with the pieces of information in the synthesize step you pick the pieces together discerning Patters etc.
exclamation Dash make predictions about the likelihood of future possibilities the goal is not to definitively predict the future but to reduce uncertainty about it
