A single platform for data integration and policy management can enable efficient and effective solutions for security and defense. Know how  Hexagon Geospatial GeoInt solutions are helping Indian Armed forces achieve that.

Geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) has been an indispensable tool for defense agencies across the world for a long time now. The recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have further demonstrated that geospatial inputs would be at the core of all future wars. And with world events tilting towards international terrorism, there is a great need amongst military agencies for detailed knowledge of the areas of conflict to improve their process for assessment, response, and decision-making. Even nations that do not encourage war understand the need of keeping their soldiers informed about the location of friends and enemies alike. GEOINT answers the questions ‘when, where, and how often?’ in a visual form. It creates a bridge from raw data points to a refined intelligence picture.

In South Asia, border disputes have long been a cause and symptom of tensions between India and its neighbors. In such a scenario, having timely, relevant, and accurate imagery, geospatial information, and products to support national security has become extremely important for India. Since changing conditions on the ground require up-to-the-minute situational awareness and adjustment, having a full 360-degree view of the area of interest, in both 2D and 3D, becomes crucial.

Mapping and imagery alone cannot answer questions that call for a detailed, analytical assessment of the operational environment. Security forces need to find the critical small data that really matters amongst the flood of Big Data. For comprehensive protection of the national border, a variety of sensors and devices — including cameras, access control systems, motion detection devices, chemical and biological threat detection sensors, biometrics and other systems — are required. Moreover, these security and defense systems should link to information technology (IT) systems, visualization systems, geographic information systems (GIS), notification systems, and intelligent analytics to provide holistic security.

However, when data is streaming in from multiple sources, a lack of mechanism to share that data becomes a major problem among the agencies involved in such operations. Which is why, a single platform for data integration and policy management can enable efficient and effective solutions for security and defence.
