Military Intelligence

Military intelligence is information about the military forces of foreign governments needed to plan for the defense of the United Federation of Planets. Knowledge of the number, location, and tactics of enemy forces and potential battle areas is needed to develop military plans. To gather information, the services rely on aerial photographs, electronic monitoring using telescopic surveillance devices and sub-space communications, and human observation.
