PURPOSE

1. The aim of AJP-2(A) is to explain intelligence and counter-intelligence in order to optimize their contributions to operations. This general framework should facilitate a common understanding of the intelligence functions throughout all levels of NATO, partner nations and other joint force compositions.

2. Primarily written for commanders and their staff at the operational level, AJP- 2(A) is also the principal reference document for intelligence specialists and is the doctrinal baseline to develop effective intelligence, counter-intelligence and security  training. Furthermore, it provides an explanation of NATO intelligence functions to those external to NATO. This doctrine expands on NATO Intelligence Policy.2

3. The main difference between AJP-2 and AJP-2(A) is the change of focus resulting from the change from state-versus-state conflict to multiple smaller scale intervention and counterinsurgency operations. It considers the more complex operational environment and the increasing number of factors that affect contemporary intelligence operations. It reflects the increasing intelligence capability within NATO and the advent of the comprehensive approach. AJP-2(A) also introduces the Joint Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Concept3 and a revision of NATO intelligence requirement management and collection management (IRM&CM) functions.

4. The application of this doctrine will facilitate a single intelligence environment within which intelligence structures across the Alliance interface and operate in collaboration to support decision-makers at all levels

2 NATO Intelligence Policy is contained in MC 0128/8 dated 13 Jan 12.
