Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., a global leader in defence technology, announced the unveiling of Puzzle, an innovative AI-based decision support suite that combines multi-domain intelligence and artificial intelligence capabilities. Puzzle represents a groundbreaking paradigm shift in situational analysis and the Sensor to Shooter circuit, enabling unprecedented efficiency, speed, and precision.
Puzzle integrates information from diverse sensor sources, including VISINT (visual intelligence such as photos, satellite imagery, and videos) and SIGINT (signals intelligence – communication/electronic), creating a comprehensive and filtered dataset through advanced AI and machine learning algorithms. The suite’s ability to rapidly process and analyse information empowers military decision-makers, shortening operational timelines and optimising the effectiveness of military operations.
In recent years, armed forces worldwide have invested heavily in advanced sensor technologies to enhance their intelligence gathering capabilities. However, the growing volume of information obtained from these sensors often exceeds the capacity for timely analysis and utilisation. Notably, a significant portion of the data remains unexamined, resulting in suboptimal target production and, at times, wasteful deployment of expensive armaments.
The Puzzle suite addresses these challenges by leveraging AI algorithms to enable human analysts to handle vast amounts of information rapidly. By separating crucial data from extraneous details, Puzzle facilitates targeted extraction of relevant intelligence, effectively sifting through mountains of big data. Whether deployed in stationary command and intelligence centers or mobile field headquarters, Puzzle seamlessly interfaces with existing command and control systems, operating both during routine activities and in times of crisis, operational activity, or warfare. Its significance lies in its ability to understand the necessary targets and assign the appropriate effectors while meeting demanding schedules, effectively bridging the gap in the sensor to shooter circuit.
Key components of the Puzzle suite include:
- IMILITE: A multi-sensor IMINT intelligence system capable of receiving, processing, and distributing information from various intelligence platforms. Utilising advanced image processing algorithms, IMILITE provides security forces worldwide with a leading-edge solution for today’s intelligence gathering, processing, and distribution needs.
- SIGNAL.AI: An AI-based signal intelligence system that transforms communication and electronic intelligence detections into actionable insights, facilitating faster and more accurate decision-making by reducing analyst workload.
- TARGETS: Empowers commanders with operational language and decision-making capabilities to achieve their objectives. This component utilises sophisticated search and extraction mechanisms to present relevant attack targets according to specified criteria, including timetables and desired outcomes, while integrating information from diverse sources.
- FORCE: Enables the construction of fire support plans by effectively aligning targets with effectors, for multiple missions. FORCE enhances cumulative effects on the enemy through efficient timing and dynamic intelligence-influenced planning, maximising the impact on high-priority targets and reallocating resources as needed. The system optimises decision-making, allowing human planners to focus on the core essence of the attack and increase effects within compressed timeframes.
This groundbreaking solution exemplifies Rafael’s commitment to providing cutting-edge technologies that empower military forces to achieve unprecedented levels of operational efficiency, effectiveness, and situational awareness.
