Organisations across the globe rely on having access to timely, accurate and relevant intelligence in order to solve complex issues promptly. In the modern field of operations, access to data gives the power to obtain time-relevant information for today’s commanders. However, with more data at the disposal of analysts, this can lead to overload and poor decision making; a problem arising from the vast amount of sensors and also the formats of data being produced.
The ability to visualise and share information across disparate and degraded communications improves tactical intelligence, ultimately making operations far more successful.
The SCi-Toolset is built upon the foundation of simplifying complex information gathered from many different sensors to allow analysts to determine what is relevant from the noise, disseminate across bandwidth-constrained networks and present key information to military decision makers in a secure and timely manner.
A Country's Ministry of Defence has a need to obtain imagery to provide confirmation of intelligence reports that the opposing Air Force has flown an additional six Su-24 Fencer aircraft into an airfield located 30km North of it's border.
To confirm or deny this report, the Air Force is tasked with conducting a reconnaissance mission as soon as possible.
Shortly after imaging the airfield, Image Analysts quickly determine that additional Su-24 aircraft have arrived at the airfield. Intelligence reports are confirmed.
A pair of F-16s depart from the squadron airbase to carry out the mission. Whilst airborne, Intelligence Analysts at the Intel Centre search for relevant data using the SCi-Toolset.
It is revealed that intelligence has been acquired several days before which indicates that the usual number of aircraft are located at the foreign airfield.
Officers posted at remote locations are receiving updates through SCi-INS nodes, providing them with new information which allows them to formulate plans accordingly.
The additional aircraft seen at the foreign airfield confirm intelligence reports, any additional movements are continually reported across the network.
The SCi-Toolset is used to visualise radar data that indicates with pinpoint precision, where changes have occurred on the airfield.
Access to updated reports through the SCi-Toolset empowers the commanders to make the decision to move anti-aircraft capability to a more strategic location.
The SCi-Toolset has enabled key decision making and mission success through intelligence derived effectively from targeted imagery coverage and key points of interest.
