INTELLIGENCE, SURVEILLANCE and RECONNAISSANCE (ISR)
ISR comprises the tasking/direction, collection, processing, exploitation and dissemination of accurate, timely, relevant and assured information to provide the battlespace awareness essential to successful planning and conduct of operations. ISR integrates capabilities from all components and sources to increase the flexibility, effectiveness and responsiveness of coalition forces by reducing uncertainties in the decision-making process. Air and space forces will be involved in the collection of information, and play a key role in its analysis and dissemination. ASIC’s key ISR principles are: integration; accuracy and fusion; accessibility; coordination; timeliness; objectivity; review; survivability, deployability and sustainability; and connectivity and interoperability.
