OSINT FOR DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE
While analysts often leverage five key sources of military intelligence — human intelligence (HUMINT), signals intelligence (SIGINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT), measurement and signatures intelligence (MASINT), the value of open-source intelligence (OSINT) is often overlooked in favor of classified sources.
In this industry brief, we outline how commanders can uniquely leverage open-source intelligence to further situational awareness, conduct battle damage assessment, tip and cue collection from other sources, gauge population sentiment, provide targeted insights on violent extremist organizations communications, and overcome intelligence challenges.
