PART G: INTELLIGENCE REPORTS
1. The Intelligence Analyst produces a variety of reports. Which report he produces is
determined by the type of information being reported and the desired result of the report.
These are some of the more common reports produced by the Intelligence Analyst:
a. Intelligence Annex. A formal intelligence tasking document that may
accompany an operations plan (OPLAN) or operation order (OPORD). The tasking is
based upon satisfaction of the commander's PIR and IR. It tells subordinate, higher,
lower, and cooperating units what information about the enemy force is required.
b. Intelligence Estimate. A logical, and orderly examination of the intelligence
factors affecting mission accomplishment. It is basically the IPB process in written form.
It is designed to bring together significant aspects of the AO and of the enemy situation;
present the enemy's capabilities and vulnerabilities; analyze them in relation to one
another, and consider each capability in its relation to the friendly mission.
c. Intelligence Report (INTREP). The analyst prepares this report when facts
influencing the enemy capabilities have been observed or when a change in enemy,
capabilities has occurred.
d. Intelligence Summary (INTSUM). The analyst at brigade and higher echelons
prepares this report to summarize intelligence gathered over a specified period of time as
stated in the unit standing operating procedures (SOP).
e. Supplementary Intelligence Report (SUPINTREP). A NATO-standardized
report format used for comprehensive reviews. It contains information on one or several
specific intelligence targets. It may also contain selected intelligence data collected over
an extended period of time and includes items contained in the INTREP or INTSUM.
