Abstract

The term ‘information superiority’ has been used within the context of information warfare to relate to the concept that an individual or organisation that is in possession of the greater amount of information possesses an advantage over an adversary. This concept is not entirely accurate as it is the ability of the individual or organisation to effectively utilise the available information which is the determining factor of superiority. This concept has been defined in this article to be: ‘Intelligence Superiority’ and attempts to demonstrate that the quantity of information that can be acquired is of a lesser value than the quality of the final intelligence product.
