Data fusion for common processing and reporting
Saab’s Information Fusion System collects data and information from a large variety of sources, such as Communication Intelligence (COMINT), Electronic Intelligence (ELINT), Acoustic Intelligence (ACINT) and Geographic information Systems (GIS).
This data is automatically or manually processed, according to content type, in order to extract maximum value from the data to support political, military and civilian decision makers. The system is able to link the processed results to data that is already in the system.
Saab’s system transforms the input data into a unified data model at an early stage to enable comparison and standard processing of similar data types later on. Saab offers the system as a standard configuration or, if required, with customised interfaces.
Unified data model
A unified data model is the prerequisite of a well-functioning information fusion system. All incoming data is stored in a common representation to allow the user to compare, match and analyse information in one common database. This approach is very useful for big data applications.
A customisable workflow and automated processing enables fast results and supports human operators. Examples of automatic processing of data are speech-to-text, entity detection, topic detection, speaker identification and language identification. The software architecture allows for new plugins to be created, where new Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms can be integrated and trained using the existing data.
Access to processes and data is based on access rights and responsibilities. These rights are assigned to users of the system ensuring the safety and security of the data.
Elaborate search function
All metadata and signals are included in the realisation of the search algorithm, providing optimal results. Different search types allows the operator to find data according to the information they already have, from full-text searches to detailed parameter searches.
Network and relationship visualisation
The relationships between entities, as well as the data itself, can be visualised in a number of different ways. For example, a graph display where the links between entities are displayed in the context of a map, in order to provide a spatial orientation.
The system provides high-level reports to support strategic, operational and tactical analysis. The reports are produced according to the decision makers’ different tasks and missions.
