"To remain relevant to operators, the United States naval intelligence must instil in its officers core competencies that reflect today's demand for precision strike. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, naval intelligence officers have grappled with ways to reorganize their community. Billets have been moved and other changes implemented, but the transformation is incomplete. The most critical need is for development of a new set of core competencies of equal importance to those that provided operational intelligence to deployed forces during the Cold War. The combination of small numbers and dispersed billets results in a diminished presence on board ships and on Navy staffs, where war fighters get down to business."
