A bit about our company….Our founders worked in Senior positions with a major covert tracking device manufacturer and noticed a void in the amount of data that the devices produced and the value that their software could add to the intelligence within the data.
Our clients rely on timely intelligence. Not having access to it when they need it endangers lives, missions and can result in significant operational inefficiencies. With tightening budgets, these are no longer acceptable to many forces.
Analysts we have spoken with tell us regularly that they are challenged to meet the tasks presented to them in a timely manner. Much of their day is spent looking at data with precious few hours left to work on the intelligence the data presents. As a result, there is a significant effort required to create an intelligence product from tracks of data. With higher priority items always being dumped on them, the delay in getting intelligence to those who request it is even longer.
Their challenge is to quickly convert thousands of lines of location-based surveillance into….
….Actionable Intelligence.Seen here is a Pattern of Life from a 51 day track we imported into our tool. You can see…xyz…
Because of the significant amount of effort involved and the lag that occurs, we also hear that much of the analysis on location-based surveillance is limited to “where was he a few hours ago” or “where is he right now”. Additionally, because people who rely on the intelligence are not aware they could get more from the data, it is simply not requested.
A second opportunity that we are told that is being missed is due to those in the field not having access to the intelligence contained in data already provided to the Analysts. By not getting an intelligence product back to the operatives in the field quickly, not only are targets not acquired, but data collectors must re-do their efforts and supply new data to the Analysts thereby creating an repeating loop of inefficiency.
Aside from being able to very quickly being able to get intelligence back into the field, an example of the value within the data can be shown with our Predictions feature. By compiling a pattern of life of a target over a period of time, our Predictions engine can equip an Analyst with the ability to predict not only a target’s location with a weighed value, it can also provide customers of the intelligence product with routes of travel to and from those locations, time at/away from a location, etc. Whether it is to intercept a target, or simply to change batteries in the tracker, knowing the safest time to engage is of vital importance.
Digesting volumes of data on a single target can challenge any analyst. The prospect of trying to overlap data for multiple targets to identify meetings, locations of interest, potential dead-drop location and other important intelligence is simply daunting; if not impossible.
By comparison, our Advanced Multi-Target tool does just that in a matter of moments. Being able to quickly identify meetings, locations of interest and such, while also being able to drill into each, offers the analyst and those in the field with an array of possibilities.
