Geo-referencing to discover
Data integration and association before exploitation
Data neutrality - equal viability of all data sources
We combined these ABI principles together with elements of our open source software framwork to create an ABI platform for a customer to counter copper cable theft in South Africa. The system fuses sensor, camera and live field reporting into a real-time geospatial visualisation environment as well as a NoSQL storage backend. Geospatial analysis products are loaded into a Geoserver and served as spatial layers into the real-time visualisation environment. This provides a high level of operational intelligence and situational awareness in preventing copper theft in high risk areas.
The principles of ABI are also highly applicable to determining activities, patterns and trends of your customers and suppliers in space and time.
It is in the field of Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) where our use of software and skills add most value. ABI is a relatively new intelligence analysis paradigm that fuses Big Data Analytics, Geospatial Visualisation and Nodal Analysis into a framework focusing on the activities and transactions of individuals and entities in space and time. The main principles of which are:
Defence & Intelligence
Our geospatial and visualisation technology and software has wide applications in the defence industry. This includes the development of C4ISR systems, radar video plot and track extraction, track fusion and radar visualisation interfaces. We have successfully integrated a range of radar systems, via the DarkmatterTM sensor data distribution service into commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and open source geospatial software environments. Open source geospatial software also offers a cost effective, highly scalable and equally advanced alternatives to proprietary systems in the Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) solutions market.
