ABSTRACT
This article reports that to regain its focus on today's relevant threat in the wake of the demise of the Soviet Union, naval intelligence needs pronged approaches. Naval Intelligence had a focus because it evaluated itself on its knowledge of the Russian threat and its ability to provide warfighters relevant threat information, The demise of the Soviet Union removed those performance measures. Naval intelligence must return to an organization based on the relevant threat. During the cold war, naval intelligence officers were expected to do a tour at a fleet ocean surveillance facility.
