Abstract : Aviation intelligence is critical to the success of the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF). For the last quarter of a century, Marine aviation has not faced a serious enemy challenge in the skies and has operated with relative freedom of maneuver. This lack of a credible threat has resulted in the aviation intelligence community's losing sight of their role and has weakened the MAGTF. An analysis of the Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities and Policy dedicated to Marine Corps aviation intelligence and the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance enterprise, reveals that they do not adequately support Marine Corps aviation in its current and near-future operations. As countries like Russia and China develop technologies to deny Marines access and to destroy Marine aviation, it is imperative that Marine Corps aviation intelligence refocuses.
