The article substantiates the feasibility of implementing intelligence analysis methodology into operational and investigation activities of border units as a tool for combating illegal armed formations during anti-terrorist operation. It has been determined that such analysis can be done either at one or two stages: the first one includes initial processing of raw data, and the second one involves complex processing of the results obtained during the first stage. A number of methods which make up the methodological principles of intelligence analysis to be used at every stage have been suggested; their capabilities have been noted.
