We are building a team to practice intelligence collection and analysis skills during the Memorial Day Bikefest in Myrtle Beach, SC. For those familiar with the event you are aware of the increased police crackdown coming this year. Anyone not familiar I urge you to read up a little on the history of the event and what happened last year particularly. Anyone who volunteers will join the ACE team.
ACE stands for the Analysis and Control Element and will be conducting all-source analysis; maybe even some predictive analysis; identifying and tracking the enemy’s situational template (SITTEMP); identifying intelligence gaps; tasking and directing collection to satisfy intelligence requirements; targeting; and, lastly, conducting the all-important Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield.
Learn the skills you will be practicing by reading Guerrillamerica. There you can learn a lot for free or find information on how to take classes both online and in person from Mr. Samuel Culper.
You can also download this booklet which has a collection of writings from Mr. Samuel Culper which are all freely available on his website.
