Threat Assessment AI
AI can enhance the commander's abilities to recognize threat indicators and determine threat intent, capability, and opportunity. An AI tool can receive input from satellites, sensors and human intelligence sources, generate threat indicators, infer threats, prioritize and classify them, and visualize them to enable decision-makers to act upon them timely.
AI analysis of object behaviours and reasoning processes
By analyzing an object's behaviours, such as its trajectories, actions, and reactions, AI can infer its intent, capability, and opportunity, considering the environment's constraints. Human operators can provide input to this reasoning process, and AI can support human operators in this process, improving their overall decision-making capabilities.
Enhancing threat assessment tools with AI
Our team can help enhance existing threat assessment tools using AI, including, if needed, adapting and integrating solutions drawn from CORALS, an award-winning AI for C4ISR, that we sell under a licence from Canada DND.
Tactical Planning AI
Planning tactical operations is a complex and challenging task that requires integrating a wide range of data from various sources, including satellites, sensors and intelligence reports, situational assessments, and resource availability and constraints. This process can be time-consuming, resource-intensive, stressful, prone to human error, and overly complex, especially in time-critical operations. We use AI to automate this process and provide efficient and effective decision support for the real-time planning of tactical operations.
Benefits of AI in tactical planning
AI can generate plans quickly and accurately, freeing the operators to focus on other aspects of the operation, including overseeing the AI recommendations. Furthermore, AI can optimize plans to efficiently use available resources, including personnel, equipment, and supplies. By analyzing the environment and available resources, AI can generate plans that maximize the chances of success while minimizing risk to personnel and equipment.
Real-time adjustments and contingency plans
AI can also generate contingency plans in real-time, enabling commanders to adjust plans as the situation evolves. This can be particularly valuable in fast-moving and dynamic situations, such as combat operations.
Overall, AI tactical planning provides a significant advantage, automating data integration and making the planning process faster, more efficient, less stressful and more accurate. It allows to generate plans that maximize the chances of success and minimize risk.

Resource and Supply Chain Optimization AI
Optimizing resources for defence and space operations can be an elaborate and difficult task, particularly when dealing with constrained resources, uncertain environments, and dynamic situations. AI can automate resource optimization in such a context by analyzing vast amounts of data from various sources, including personnel readiness, equipment status, and supply chain inventory, to determine the optimal allocation of resources. By analyzing the environment and available resources, AI can schedule resource allocations that maximize the effectiveness of available resources while minimizing waste and inefficiencies. The AI can also inform a higher-level AI planning process in tactical or logistic operations.
AI’s role in predictive analysis
Moreover, AI provides predictive analytics that help predict equipment and supply failures before they occur, enabling proactive maintenance and repair, reducing downtime, and extending equipment life.
Enhancing resource optimization with AI
Overall, the use of AI in resource optimization can provide defence and space organizations with a significant advantage, making the process faster, more efficient, and more accurate. Automating data analysis and optimization can result in cost savings, improved performance, and increased operational efficiency.

Execution Monitoring AI
Monitoring the execution of defense and space operations is essential for achieving desired outcomes and ensuring the safety of personnel and equipment. However, monitoring execution can be a challenging task, particularly when dealing with complex operations, uncertain environments, and dynamic situations.
AI can analyze vast amounts of data from various sources, including sensor data, equipment status, human performance, and ongoing operations, to detect anomalies and identify situations where the effects of planned actions diverge from their actual outcome. By analyzing the environment and available data, AI can generate alerts and notifications that enable personnel or automated replanning aids to take corrective action quickly and efficiently.
Predictive analytics for proactive maintenance and repair
Furthermore, AI can provide predictive analytics that help predict equipment and system failures before they occur, enabling proactive maintenance and repair, reducing downtime, and extending equipment life. This can result in cost savings, improved performance, and increased operational efficiency.
Real-time situational awareness and decision-making
AI can also generate situational awareness reports that provide decision-makers with real-time insights into the status of the operation, enabling them to adjust plans and take action as necessary.
Overall, the use of AI in execution monitoring can provide defence and space organizations with a significant advantage, making the process faster, more efficient, and more accurate. By automating data analysis and alert generation, AI can free up personnel to focus on other critical aspects of the operation, while generating insights that enable decision-makers to take timely and effective action. This can result in improved mission success, increased safety, and reduced risk.

AI automation vs. AI analytics
AI analytics and AI automation are complementary but should not be confused. While AI automation is focused on automating processes, AI analytics is focused on providing insights. For instance, AI automation can automate aspects of situational surveillance, such as image analysis, threat evaluation by generating threat indicators, or tactical planning by generating a course of action. In contrast, AI analytics can generate performance measures on the AI performance in making accurate recommendations and how human operators, supported by AI automation, perform surveillance operations. Analytics can, for example, provide information on how many threats were assessed correctly by the AI or the human operator. AI automation would automate identifying threats and generating actionable alerts for the operator.
Supply chain operations and analytics
For supply chain operations, analytics can enable providing a picture of the entire supply chain and make predictions to anticipate resource availability issues and act proactively. In contrast, automation of the supply chain could involve optimizing resource management, logistic planning tools, and mission planning tools.
Leveraging AI analytics for informed decision-making
By leveraging AI analytics, decision-makers can make informed decisions that improve mission success, increase safety, and reduce risk.
Our team can help enhance existing analytics and, if needed, integrate AI analytics drawn from CORALS, an award-winning AI for C4ISR, that we sell under a licence from Canada DND.
