An Ocean of Possibilities

Welcome to the latest edition of Imagine 360. In this issue we look at our expanding maritime capabilities, discussing our latest technical developments and the key partnerships that are helping us provide unprecedented levels of detail and accuracy in this critical domain.

Airbus’ commitment to supporting inter-agency cooperation is demonstrated in our article on the SAFEcommand Discovery tool, which empowers multiple agencies to share information securely through an intuitive interface. We also announce our partnership with Geo4I, an expert in geo intelligence. As a result of this new relationship, Airbus’ RECCE Engine® – a semi-automatic recognition tool – has been enriched with new defence equipment databases created by Geo4I.
The final feature provides a brief history of rocket artillery and looks to the future, touching on the multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) of tomorrow. We also present two recent case studies. The first discusses the integrated suite of tools that Airbus has developed to support the intelligence cycle and manage requests in a joint and multinational context. The second case study highlights how Airbus is working with Hawkeye 360, the world’s leading radio frequency (RF) data analytics company, to support security operations around the world.
