Expanded Role for Activity-Based Intelligence to Enhance National Security and Humanitarian Response
November 25th, 2013 by Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial
We need the right tools to help us sense the world around us, which includes intelligence from space, the air and the ground. Delivering the actionable information can help drive both humanitarian and national security efforts worldwide.
Sven Bues, Vice President, EMEA Defense & Intelligence Sales at Intergraph, recently authored a blog post about how activity-based intelligence (ABI) is driving improvements in sensor development, information management, analysis, and sharing – with the ultimate goal being enhanced intelligence activities.
Multi-INT fusion is a key aspect of ABI, which establishes real-time connections to as many raw intelligence collections as possible. This fusion approach brings together everything from imagery intelligence (IMINT), to signals intelligence (SIGINT) to human intelligence (HUMINT) that provides a holistic perspective for warfighters and humanitarian responders to act more swiftly and effectively.
ABI allows for the assessment of a wider variety of data over a period of time, which provides a better understanding of patterns of behavior and future activities. Today, ABI is driving improvements in sensor development, information management, analysis, sharing, and enhancing intelligence activities. Rather than focusing collection and analysis efforts on a single target, the approach has evolved to assess a wider variety of data over a period of time.
In the coming weeks, Intergraph will be providing more insights around its presence at DGI 2014. We will also be discussing how our complete portfolio of solutions allows intelligence, defense, national security, and disaster assistance agencies to more effectively meet mission goals and requirements.
Based on both the environmental and political upheaval that is confronting our world, these types of solutions will shape how we manage a highly uncertain future.
