Intelligence Organization of Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (Persian: سازمان اطلاعات سپاه پاسداران انقلاب اسلامی‎‎) is an Iranian intelligence agency within the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC) and part of Council for Intelligence Coordination.[1]

According to Stratfor, it is as powerful as Ministry of Intelligence and possibly even more powerful than the other service. The agency appears to be more active at a domestic level while at an international level, the Quds Force is the key operational group. The agency also has a wide range of Basij informers.[2]

Hossein Taeb is head of the agency.[3]
