Integrated Intelligence Center (iic)
Multi-domain, Multi-INT ISR Mission Planning, Command & Control, and Exploitation
A scalable operations data fusion center with a modern open architecture and infrastructure that enables collaborative, reliable, and secure mission planning and execution. Its modular design enables the expansion of capabilities to rapidly accommodate future growth requirements while reducing manpower needs across the ISR lifecycle via automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities.
The Integrated Intelligence Center (iic) fuses seamlessly with existing C4ISR capabilities – such as sensors data, video and other intelligence products – from Defense and other Government ministries and agencies.
Versatile ISR Ops and PED
At the heart of the iic is GA-ASI's integrated suite of automated mission capabilities, including GA-ASI's STARE (System for Tactical Archival, Retrieval, and Exploitation) software, MMC (Multi-Mission Controller) software and Metis, a tasking, collection management, and intelligence sharing program. These core products provide a unified intelligence collection and Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) capability to efficiently consolidate and allocate mission assets throughout the entire ISR lifecycle.
Multi-Mission Controller (MMC)
MMC enables a single user to safely control multiple aircraft and their missions simultaneously by leveraging a combination of automation and user experience-based design. From MMC, users transit their aircraft, as well as execute routine Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
Metis Automated Collection Management & Intelligence Sharing
A GA-ASI developed capability that streamlines and automates the collection management process while allowing for rapid, cloud-based intelligence sharing. Metis' map-based interface enables users to request ISR as easily as one orders a car from Uber.
The System for Tactical Archival, Retrieval, and Exploitation's (STARE) Common Operation Picture shows aircraft locations, where the operator can look and determine what they are looking at. The Multi-INT exploitation tool ingests, archives, disseminates and makes ISR data discoverable for imagery analysts to utilize. STARE reduces data exploitation tasks from hours to minutes.
eXpeditionary Command & Control (XC2)
XC2 eliminates the need for forward deployed ground control stations, crews and pilots to Launch-and-Recover Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). XC2 leverages GA-ASI's Advanced Cockpit by taking the same software and porting it to a ruggedized laptop.
The front wall of the main ops floor contains a large seamless video display to provide a "Big Picture" accessible to the entire command center for shared context among analysts, operators and commanders. The displays show STARE and its common operating picture – a real-time ISR data feed that also captures the location of both manned and unmanned connected customer platforms. This same information can be disseminated to remote users and viewable on smaller formats such as an iPad. The enabling technologies integrate remote sites seamlessly through multi-level secure communications, video-tele communications (VTC), chat and other collaborative tools.
Maximum Operator Effectiveness and Manpower Reduction
The main floor is designed with the operator in mind, emphasizing collaboration by factoring in aspects such as person-to-person sightlines and non-verbal communications critical to decision-making, such as body language and other visual cues. It includes:
- Ergonomic Design, Seamless Integration and Automation
- Less fatigue and increased manpower efficiency and productivity with less manning
- Common "Big Picture" Display, Chat and Sharing Tools, Multi-level Secure Communications
- Shared context among analysts, operators and commanders
- Robust and Secure Network Architecture and Monitoring
- Prevents compromise of sensitive information
- Highly Reliable and Redundant Systems
- System available as mission dictates
