This course is designed to provide students with an expert level of knowledge analysing and exploiting FMV. The content is a progression of the IMINT fundamentals course that allows students to start manipulating imagery and making critical assessments on what is seen and most important of all, what they think is likely to happen next.
By the end of the module, students will be able to effectively view, record, decide and disseminate information from FMV including the production of high quality intelligence products and brief others on the current and future situation. They will also learn about the importance of communication between analysts and operators as well as ensuring the Commander’s critical mission specific questions are being answered.
