We support intelligence analysts by developing and deploying machine learning tools to extract key insights from many data sources.
Intelligence analysts are responsible for processing tremendous volumes of data to find, correlate, and contextualize information critical for national security. These data come in extremely high volumes (hundreds of terabytes per day), with a wide-variety of formats, across multiple domains, such as imagery, signals intelligence, and geospatial data. Producing actionable intelligence from the volume and variety of data requires integrating automated data processing tools with improved tradecraft.
STR's data analytics team directly supports intelligence analysts by developing and deploying machine learning tools to extract key insights from a wide variety of data sources.
Identifying anomalous population-level activity patterns in urban settings based on textual clues
Reconstructing physical movement from distributed sensor measurements
Associating users across transactional databases
In any project, our focus is always on providing rigorous and effective algorithmic tools to help analysts more efficiently and effectively generate valuable intelligence products
