Intelligence was a branch of the Galactic Empire's Imperial Intelligence organization, which was responsible for gathering information from Analysis and used its own experts to uncover trends, reporting them to officials throughout the galaxy. Each sector had its own branch to accomplish those tasks.
Behind the scenes
The Intelligence branch was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in Dawn of Rebellion, a roleplaying supplementary sourcebook for the Star Wars Roleplaying series that was published by Fantasy Flight Games in 2018. The Intelligence branch also existed in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was introduced in the 1989 Imperial Sourcebook, which was authored by Greg Gorden and published by West End Games. They performed a similar role of taking data from the Analysis Bureau and providing it to a group of experts to predict what opponents would do next.
