About the Project
The Open Source Intelligence Project 2011 is an attempt to draw together the most salient bits of currentlyavailable Open Source material to piece together a broad and largely complete analysis of Iranian militarycapability. Open Source refers to unclassified, public sources.The co-authors and reviewers come from a wide range of backgrounds, including in some cases extensivemilitary intelligence experiences and/or relevant specialist knowledge. However, their primary connection is anappreciation and active participation in the Open Source intelligence scene. All those involved have contributedon an amateur/civilian basis. Some have requested to remain anonymous, for various reasons, which we mustrespect.The project was started in April 2010 and took months of writing, research, drafts and revisions to make it intothe form you are reading. We have attempted to provide a single text that will be easy to navigate and digest.However, it is the work of multiple people and this may be apparent in different writing styles and minorformatting differences. We apologize for this, but believe it is inevitable in this type of undertaking.We hope that you find the document interesting and informative – we are hopeful that there is someinformation and analysis which although open source in nature, is fresh and stimulating to even a highlyinformed reader.
