The aim of the course is to develop NATO analysts who can leverage Identity Intelligence to enhance analysis and production to inform command decisions in NATO Joint Operations Areas (JOAs). This include the key skills of identity identification (discovering new threat actors), resolution (separating friend from foe) and attribution (linking persons to places or events).

This course is also intended to provide a place to share lessons learned and develop analytical techniques.
