Artificial Intelligence Transforming Defence & Security

The changing nature of war, from conventional armed conflict between states, to modern war of terrorism and civil conflicts, calls for modernisation of military technologies and security reform globally. Today, nations are fighting against guerrilla and insurgency tactics, hi-tech weaponry and 'virtual' warfare, making intelligence of preventing and predicting such movements just as essential as on-the-ground combat operations.

Geospatial tools offer the capability of monitoring, predicting and countering threats, while helping to strategise and support field operations. The use of big data, advanced geospatial analytics software and sophisticated imaging technologies from (very) high-resolution remote sensing satellites, UAVs and other sensors enables seamless flow of information between intelligence and law enforcements agencies in pre-, real-time and post-combat operations.

Real-time views and insight of impacted regions is key to improving emergency response times, especially in vulnerable areas such as a country's border. Considering critical situations can occur at any time, situational awareness has never been more important. Geospatial data is invaluable to the border security operations, to deliver accurate situational awareness information, enabling quick and secure decision-making, while mitigating risks, and increase national security.

Geospatial World Forum 2017 shall be hosting a seminar on Defence & National Security, focusing on how geospatial intelligence can support the fight against emerging security situations across the globe.
