Defusing Terrorism in Europe with Geospatial Intelligence

Defusing Terrorism in Europe with Geospatial Intelligence

By Yashita Arora on

Terror can strike anywhere and anytime despite security measures in place. In a span of five months, major cities of Western Europe were terrorised – Paris on 13 November 2015, and Brussels on 22 March 2016. Not only were lives lost and injuries sustained, the cities came to a standstill as defence, security, and emergency response authorities struggled with containing the situation, and preventing further loss of life and damage to infrastructure. Every bit of intelligence – pre-emptive and post-facto – can prove to be crucial at emergency situations, and Geospatial Intelligence plays a critical role make smart, timely and informed decisions. Read on to learn how.

The Geospatial Intelligence Advantage

Geospatial solutions create integrated information for a Common Operating Picture, facilitating realistic situation assessment, and managing their on-field personnel/troop. However, relying on geospatial intelligence means bulk-loads of data that must be collected, stored, processed and managed efficiently to create accurate, authoritative and actionable information.

The Intelligence Advantage

Fused Intelligence for Informed Decisions: Rapidly fuse data from various sources to perform sophisticated analysis and present actionable intelligence

Increased Efficiencies and Time Savings: Shorten data search with robust geospatial information management and automated ingest, so you can spend more time performing analysis

Advanced Analysis and Reporting: Collection of powerful spatial queries and visualisations enable analysts to identify trends and make high-confidence decisions.

The Challenges

Defence organisations are taxed with collecting and analysing an increasing volume of imagery from varied and complex sources. Imagery, vector, and elevation data all need to be fused together in support of comprehensive geospatial analyses.
