About intelligence research

Intelligence research involves the collation of facts and indicators.

Intelligence research spreads across comms and electronic signals, aerial/satellite, human-sources, materials analysis, radar and sonar, and more.

Some research uses Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) covering material available in public – think tanks and journalists use such information. Other research material is secret.

Specialist intelligence researchers focus on material via specific channels where a high degree of expertise is needed to find the right material, reliably and rapidly. Generalist intelligence researchers work with multiple tools. The use of artificial intelligence to process raw data has resulted in an increase in the need for specialists to refine the AI engines and interpret their output.
