Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance

In military operations, a comprehensive view of tactical operations is integral to mission success. Complex intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations and systems are needed to accomplish this goal.

Working closely with governmental agencies, SRI has contributed significantly to important breakthroughs in military communications, command and control, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications. For several decades, SRI has supported the U.S. government with the development, prototyping, and deployment of advanced technologies and systems.

Our transformational capabilities in C4ISR include:

  • Satellite-on-the-move communications

  • Mobile ad hoc wireless networking

  • Aerial video exploitation

  • Large-scale ISR processing and exploitation

  • Collaborative intelligence analysis

  • Cyber defense technologies

  • Data extraction and analysis

  • Electronic counter-countermeasures

  • Intelligent software agents

  • Knowledge management tools

  • Remote sensing

  • Signals intelligence

  • Standoff concealed object detection

  • Systems integration

  • Real-time air/ground video exploitation systems

  • Real-time video processing technologies and products
