NEOS - Exploitation

Today, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) technology out in the field can collect large amounts of signal data, but the process of turning that data into usable information and getting it to the warfighter takes time – time that creates a critical gap IvySys defines as the "Intelligence Crisis." In the future, experts predict the amount of ISR data collected will increase 25 times faster than the number of human analysts who can process the data. As a result, most of the data will become "perishable intel" – data that could have become valuable information, if anyone had been able to interpret it quickly enough.

The NEOS™ solution reduces the collection-analysis gap by providing the tactical soldier with automated analysis for complete situational awareness in real-time. The core components of NEOS are the Intelligence Processing Unit™ (IPU) and the Coherent Processing Engine™ (CPE). Together, these components sift through vast amounts of data using complex algorithms mapped to many-core GPU/GPP hardware, then bring together the data from a number of systems and present the intelligence to the warfighter in an easy-to-read graphical interface – a geospatial view of their tactical location with icons identifying both friendly and unfriendly elements.

NEOS has a library of signal signatures that recognize the patterns of known objects like friendly trucks, beacons, planes, etc. This library of familiar signals allows for the system to recognize anomalies and detect these potential threats. If the system picks up an unknown signature, it will notify the soldier of the location, and the soldier has the option of determining what the new object is and adding that signature to the library.
