THE RIGHT DATA JUST IN TIME
Our Keystone software makes sure you can put the right data into the right pair of hands at the right time. We break the old stovepipe model and make rapid access to IMINT the normal way to work.
BRIDGING SENSOR ISLANDS
Great sensors lead to great intelligence. And networked sensors ensure that intelligence is shared with everyone that needs it. So Keystone has built-in standards-based interoperability that ensure your sensor assets are plugged in from the outset.
The Keystone software can be configured to deliver a range of capabilities including:
- Ground stations for airborne and satellite sensor systems:
- Data storage, archive and retrieval (DSAR)
- Processing, exploitation and dissemination (PED)
- Rapid access and sharing of real-time and archived still and video imagery and products, in support of time-critical applications
- NATO Joint ISR interoperability (Coalition Shared Data, CSD).
RAPID DATA SHARING
Sharing of image data is deeply integrated into Keystone. Individual image products and layers can be shared and accessed via the Keystone Web Portal (collaboration server), as well as via NATO JISR CSD. Our JISR plug-&-play integration as a sensor and exploitation station within a coalition Joint ISR CSD network. Keystone supports the JISR standards for data formats and library interface, enabling publication, synchronisation, browse and exchange of image products, and CSD workflow services.
Quality intelligence products start as raw sensor data. Keystone enables the sensor data to be viewed and fused in 2D and 3D map displays. This helps in understanding geospatial context and in prioritising imagery video data sets. Using automated, rigorous photogrammetric methods, sensor data geo-location can be improved to sub-pixel level. Image and video products such as ortho-photos, video clips, mosaics, image stacks (for change detection and trend analysis) and WMS layers can be generated in seconds.
Keystone software stores and processes imagery from the reconnaissance pod flown on the Swedish Air Force’s Gripen jet fighter. This saw action during NATO-led operations over Libya in 2011 and helped Gripen gain a reputation for speedy and accurate intelligence reporting. Spacemetric supplied a Keystone solution to handle Full Motion Video from the Swedish Army's UAV 03 (Shadow 200). This was deployed as part of Sweden’s participation in the ISAF mission in Afghanistan and is currently deployed in Mali as part of the UN mission.
Interoperability has been developed within Keystone through cooperation with the Netherlands Air Force and participation in the MAJIIC (Multi-intelligence All-source Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Coalition) programme.
