We can best achieve this goal by capitalizing on the inherent synergies that exist among our ISR systems. Synergy is defined, as the interaction of individual parts so that the total effect produced by their working together is greater than the sum of their individual efforts. Together ISR provide the key pieces of intelligence information that help achieving information superiority. The synergistic effect of ISR operations also provides the best possible intelligence to the combat commander, producing ‘actionable’ and...
