A LAYMEN’S INTRODUCTION TO INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS is a very basic primer describing rudimentary terms, concepts, and steps in intelligence collection and analysis. The primary function of this manuscript is to give the average person an idea of how, why, and for what purposes intelligence is collected. This work provides several brief analysis pieces, created by the author, to help visual what a potential final intelligence product may look like. This is not an academic book, rather a book to help with understanding basic intelligence concepts.
