Digital maps foil suicide bombing attempts in Israel

SHARE

The Israel Security Agency has developed an intelligence processing system designed to quickly detect insurgency plots and relay real-time alerts to field commanders. The system developed by ISA’s computer branch, collates data and intelligence from a range of sources and processes them into digital maps and other situational awareness graphics. The system then relays the information to everyone from senior officials and analysts to field commanders and police patrols. The system has foiled scores of suicide bombing attempts over the last year. The system is being examined by a range of countries for use in counter-insurgency and homeland security missions.
