Exploiting Time-Derived, Activity-Based Intelligence

Historically, geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) analysis focused on scheduled, precise, preplanned reconnaissance against known targets—countries or actors with the capability to threaten U.S. interests with military force. Today advanced communications systems and access to information make terrorism and irregular warfare more dynamic and unpredictable than our historical view of strategic threats. Emerging tradecraft for counterterrorism and

Creating Clarity for Human Terrain Analysis

In a world that’s increasingly influenced by nontraditional, disparate data,  as well as  open source information channels, the Department of Defense (DoD) continues to lack the critical ability to rapidly synthesize and aggregate information at scale to fully understand how “new data” affects “current data.” In fact, finding new ways and technologies to increase the

Racing to Adopt FMV Technology

The rapid emergence of full-motion video (FMV) technology is assuming the role aerial photography once filled. As “instant access” to information becomes the norm, how do we envision meeting the demand to handle growing amounts of streaming FMV? With more than 7,000 unmanned ground and aerial systems simultaneously collecting video data, will military command and
