In some cases, these advisors may be the only intelligence professionals with access to a particular foreign security force, giving them a unique ability to answer priority intelligence requirements
and specific information requirements with regard to their host nation's capability.
Information flows up and down echelons across the battlefield to answer commanders' priority intelligence requirements
and to detect, find and destroy enemy assets using available assets, including non-lethal targeting options.
The primary observation was that the Army's robust surveillance and reconnaissance networks must recognize and report weapons of mass destruction threats and CBRN hazards as priority intelligence requirements
. CBRN reporting must easily move horizontally and vertically across the force.
Those that had the potential of seriously degrading the enemy's capabilities were designated High Value Targets and those that could be decisive in the friendly force's mission were designated High Payoff Targets (HPTs) and formed the basis of the commander's Priority Intelligence Requirements
, or PIRs.
For the joint forcible-entry portion of the airborne infantry BCT mission, assigning the ERT to the brigade intelligence section for administrative control with specific priority intelligence requirements
on the brigade intelligence synchronization matrix would enhance the ability of the ERT to develop engagement areas.
An unpublished white paper on the subject of CPAD as a methodology for intelligence work posits that the weapons system would be better suited to answering fundamental intelligence questions contained in documents such as commanders' priority intelligence requirements
if it departed from a product-centric approach and adopted a project-based one.
Crucial to the success of the military decision-making process (MDMP) and intelligence preparation of the battlefield (IPB), geospatial engineers enhance planning, support the priority intelligence requirements
(PIRs) and commander's critical information requirements (CCIRs), and more importantly, allow the commander to visualize the terrain.
The additional personnel assigned to the S-2 section also gain insight into the intelligence-gathering process, allowing them to more effectively serve as an interface between the S-2 and companies.This enhanced capability allows those personnel to conduct prebriefings that are better tailored to the patrol and its mission and debriefings that are more finely focused on priority intelligence requirements
The mechanism of priority "information" requirements (PIR) was patterned after systems that used priority intelligence requirements
in counterinsurgency environment.
I trained my Soldiers to capture debrief data from our convoys, understand the commander's priority intelligence requirements
, and understand the broad influences of the Global War on Terrorism on our mission.

The existing procedure to submit ISR requirements from the JFACC and other component commanders to the JFC, and from the JFC to the national community, is via priority intelligence requirements
(PIR) and component collection requirements to the JCMB.
