New Multi-Int System Delivers Actionable Intelligence

Intelligence professionals and military forces alike need to remain one step ahead of potential threats. So how does this work? This new multi-function radar system integrates with airborne intelligence, gathering sensors that capture information simultaneously, giving analysts a complete picture of the situation around them. “Our system links multiple sensors together, which gives analysts the ability to track, fuse, cross-cue, and holistically understand the data that’s been captured by each of the sensors within the system,” said John Kelly, director of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Futures at BAE Systems. “Our Multi-INT system maximizes the warfighters’ collection intake by giving…

Unified Military Intelligence Picture Helping To Dispel The Fog Of War

Military operations depend upon the unimpeded flow of accurate and relevant information to support timely decisions related to battle planning and execution. To address these needs, numerous intelligence systems and technologies have been developed over the past 20 years, but each of these typically provides only a partial picture of the battlefield, and integrating the information has proven to be burdensome and inefficient. DARPA’s Insight program aims to take defense intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) to the next level by creating the capability to meaningfully integrate disparate “stovepiped” source information into a unified picture of the battlefield. As DARPA’s capstone…

U.S. DoD C4ISR Spending to Focus on Maintenance of Existing Platforms

The large, multiyear, single prime contract model is yielding to a small, short-term, multivendor model in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) command and control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) market. By 2017, spending will focus on maintenance and incremental upgrades to mature technologies. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (www.defense.frost.com), US DoD C4ISR Competitive Analysis, finds that the market stood at $75.53 billion in 2012, and is expected to reduce to $45.00 billion in 2017. C4ISR spending will be reduced through 2017, especially for research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E). Though C4ISR spending will not be reduced…
