‘MI Relook’ changed design of MI force

April 27, 1993

The intelligence and electronic warfare organizations that contributed to the overwhelming victory in Operation Desert Storm were envisioned and built during the 1980s. Through enlightened efforts such as the Army Intelligence Master Plan, the Army designed, developed, integrated, tested, and fielded these MI organizations and systems.

After the war, the Military Intelligence Relook, or MI Relook — a comprehensive assessment of the lessons learned from Desert Storm — validated the majority of MI planned and programmed materiel solutions, but made significant changes to MI organizational structure. Additionally, the MI Relook cast MI doctrine for the end of the 20th century and laid the doctrinal foundation for MI’s entry into the 21st century.

The MI Relook changed the design of the MI Force. It added direct support companies to division MI battalions, balancing intelligence disciplines at all echelons, incorporated new warfighting concepts such as analysis and control Element, and new MI systems, such as unmanned aircraft systems.

MI Relook also redesigned enlisted and officer training at USAICoE, and directed the publishing of new field manuals and a rework of the enlisted military occupational specialty structure.
