Big Data Analytics is helping to quantitatively deal with the information overload, as well as to qualitatively improve intelligence assessments by drawing out patterns and insights from data, say intelligence experts. Though reconnaissance and surveillance tasks are carried out by the military prior to mounting any assault, the success of the mission depends on the correct analysis of the available information.
Big Data Analytics has been playing a major role in military intelligence. With armed forces around the world investing in integrated Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) capabilities and a wide array of sensors, information overload is leading to a deluge of data.
Advances in smart and networked combat systems have been pushing military forces to adopt new technologies, including Big Data analytics. French defense giant Thales’ acquisition of the US-based firm Gus, a pioneer in big data analytics, in 2017 was a case in point, according to thehindubusinessline.com.
