Analysis was a branch within the Galactic Empire's Imperial Intelligence organization. Analysis was responsible for surveying and interpreting an abundance of surveillance data and information acquired daily. Among the data, it monitored media transmissions, verified communication channels, broke encryptions, and assessed enemy equipment and techniques.
Behind the scenes
The Analysis division was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon through the 2018 roleplaying supplement Dawn of Rebellion, published by Fantasy Flight Games. The branch also existed in the Star Wars Legends continuity as the Analysis Bureau, which was introduced in the 1989 Imperial Sourcebook written by Greg Gorden and published by West End Games. It performed a similar role of examining data and information.
