Tactical and strategic land based IMaging INTelligence (IMINT) and Marine Domain Awareness (MDA) require a fully and dedicated operational system to planning, gather, analyse ad deliver data and information.
The GEOStation for Defence is a turnkey solution provided by e-GEOS to carry out image intelligence (IMINT) tasks based on satellite imagery. It includes a system for all IMINT tasks, from information gathering to reporting, an complete technical support based on training and assisted operations aimed at enabling Defence and IMINT organizations to run autonomously their daily activities.
It is a solution to derive technical, geographical and intelligence information through the interpretation and analysis of imagery and collateral material. It helps to build situation awareness and produce actionable intelligence minimizing delays in processing, interpreting and disseminating to final customer; to detect and monitor in time human activities over key sites with reliable data collections and the suitable update frequency. The GEOStation solution aids to access not-classified information and to integrate and cross-cue the information and imagery products derived from multi-sensor infrastructures and multi-temporal dataset.
The system provided is modular and can be fully adapted to customer requests. Main sub-systems are:
- Data gathering infrastructure: from open source info analysis to multi-mission satellite data acquisition. Satellite missions considered include both Electro-Optical (EO) and Radar sensors, thus providing a huge capability in covering large areas and frequently monitoring target activity;
- Information extraction architecture: for a full technical exploitation of data gathered with pre-defined processing workflows dedicated to the different tasks (e.g. land / maritime, tactical / strategic IMINT);
- Reporting system: developed in accordance to the international standard directives (e.g. Stanag 3596) but, at the same time, fully customizable according to user need;
- Dissemination system: it aims to provide access to satellite data and value added products to a broader audience through the use of a GeoWeb-application delivery; moreover it allows to operate, store and integrate data for analysis and decision making process. The proposed system is highly flexible, its architecture is based on a modular approach: it is expandable and suitable to collect and elaborate different sourced data.
Thanks to its wide, proven and multi-year operational and validated experience in providing integrated Earth-Observation based services to public and privately held Customers worldwide, e-GEOS guarantees the realization of cutting edge technology systems through the implementation of high reliability and performance systems together with the most advanced satellite data information extraction workflows.
