AbstractIntelligence is an essential part of modern organizations. Related to the modern organization, the defense intelligence agency is compulsory of the defense ministry organization. Defense intelligence's job is to look for some information and then to proceed into intelligence analysis products. This intelligence analysis product is needed by Minister for decision making and also for policy analysis to formulate some defense policies. The problem arises from the absence of a structural defense intelligence organization in Indonesia’s Ministry of Defense. The idea of performing defense intelligence is still being debated, so the defense intelligence function is currently carried out by the defense strategic installation agency.
