The military's response to changes within the world political and technological environment has been termed a Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA). This monograph summarizes the effects that these changes will have on intelligence operations at the tactical level, or more specifically, the interaction between the tactical commander and the intelligence system which supports him.

Concurrently, the Military Intelligence community is drafting its own, complementary program: "Intelligence XXI" - "INTEL XXI". An brief historical overview is presented in Section 2. A summary of the characteristics of future forces and operations as envisioned by the Force XXI and INTEL XXI programs is found in Section 3. The impact of these programs for tactical intelligence operations is discussed in Sections 4 through 7. The implications of these concepts is framed in terms of their impact on the TRADOC domains - Doctrine; Leadership; Organization (and Manning); and Training. Finally, a summary of what has been construed and recommendations are contained in the Conclusion.
