Given modern warfare’s complex and dynamic nature, military deception has become a vital tool in the contemporary operating environment for gaining strategic advantage and achieving operational success. For this reason, countering enemy deception operations has become an operational requirement to support mission accomplishment. Furthermore, with the increased use of modern technologies and information warfare tactics by adversaries, intelligence has become a critical asset in countering enemy deception operations and protecting the safety and security of military personnel and operations.
