Enhance Intelligence Operations


Generate Actionable Intelligence
Use data extraction and entry tools coupled with rich visual analysis capabilities to help intelligence analysts focus on sense-making of incoming information, analyzing data and uncovering critical intelligence. Speed up the creation of actionable evidenced-based tactical and strategic reports so that operational teams can make effective time-critical decisions.

Quickly Share and Disseminate Information
Create reports and briefings, in the form of intelligence packages that provide a common operational picture of even the most complex intelligence, and facilitate collaboration and dissemination of intelligence into the field to provide a clear situational awareness picture for all.

Preserve Mission Continuity and Data Integrity
Rely on robust, configurable security that supports an organizations workflow to facilitate a consistent approach to information analysis and preserve data integrity, while allowing information to be available to those who need it.


Combat Threats


Intelligence drives defense and national security activities. Those activities are support by actionable and accurate information. Acquired information is converted into clear, comprehensible intelligence that can be used to make informed decisions. Tools and capabilities that support intelligence analysts include:

Geospatial Analysis
Use geospatial tools to analyze information alongside a geographic view of the same data enabling analysts to establish where and how events have occurred, and to assess the level of threat posed within the overall operational picture.

Cyber Operations
Conduct both proactive and reactive target analysis to fuse together and analyze disparate cyber information, and map out hostile cyber-threats.

Mission Support
Effectively store, retrieve and analyze all-source information gathered during operations and combine it with open-source information to create a clear and comprehensive picture, to help facilitate tactical and strategic planning for future missions much easier.

Social Network Analysis
Examine and analyze group structures and communication flows within networks, helping with the understanding of social relationships, characteristics, gate keepers, key players, leaders and followers within a network and monitor how networks evolve over time.
