Aman is the military intelligence organization of the State of Israel. Organizationally, it differs from other national military intelligence agencies in that it is considered coequal to other branches of the military, rather than as a staff agency such as the Defense Intelligence Agency or Russian GRU.

Tactical intelligence units report both to Aman and their chain of command. It may be that certain units need support from a military branch, such as aircraft for imagery and signals intelligence, but the intelligence units task the main branch for these functions.
