We consider an intermediate Dirac-Born-Infeld (DBI) inflationary model in the presence of a minimal measurable length in the theory. We show that the presence of a minimal measurable length modifies the definitions of the scalar and tensor spectral indices and also other inflation observables. This is due to modification of the momentum and corresponding wave number of the perturbations in the presence of a minimal length. By using the deformed definition of the scalar and tensor spectral indices, we perform numerical analysis on the intermediate DBI inflation model to find some constraints on the deformation parameter. In this regard, we compare our numerical results with both Planck2018 TT, TE, EE +lowE +lensing +BAO+ BK14 and Planck2018 TT, TE, EE +lowE+lensing+BK14 +BAO+LIGO and Virgo2016 data at the 68% CL and 95% CL. Our numerical study shows that the intermediate DBI inflation model in the presence of a minimal measurable length is observationally viable if the upper bound on the deformation parameter to be considered of the order of 1048 at 68% CL and 1049 at 95% CL. This is consistent with the results of other approaches to constrain such a quantity.
