Intelligence Integration and the Impact on
Communications


In order for Intelligence Information to be
effective
, it
must be
mainstreamed

into current and future
Intelligence and C2 Systems


Intelligence systems consume enormous quantities of
communications bandwidth


Intelligence data handling systems are proliferating


Large volumes of intelligence information are being
increasingly pushed down to the forward edge


Intelligence sharing is the future imperative rather than
the current exception


The trend towards intelligence system integration may
mitigate stress on DoD’s communications infrastructure




GCCS/BICES/DCGS FMV Integration

GCCS/DCGS/BICES FMV Integration


Global Command & Control System, Integrated Imagery and Intelligence (GCCS
-
I3)


Intelligence information analysis system enabling users an immediate access to
imagery and intelligence directly from a Common Operational Picture (COP).


GCCS
-
I3 fuses data from multiple sensors and intelligence sources to enable
situational awareness. The system supports the integration of locally collected
tactical imagery, live video streams and other intelligence with national and
theater
-

produced intelligence.


GCCS
-
I3 upgrades to allow for FMV dissemination in the process of being
fielded within UK, Afghanistan, and Tampa
.



Persistent Dissemination and Surveillance System (PSDS2)


Integrates inputs from multiple sources (electro
-
optical, infrared, radar,
acoustic) to provide situational awareness.


Disseminates real
-
time streaming video


Provides “video in context” for situational awareness on a 3
-
D terrain model or
Google Earth (GE available on US BICES) Common Operational Picture (COP)


FMV able to be stored, archived, and searched via metadata




Cross
-
Domain Enterprise All
-
Source User Repository (CENTAUR)


US BICES interface to DCGS


Able to search and retrieve releasable intelligence in the form of still imagery and Full
Motion Video Clips




OUSD/I
-
managed Intelligence system
facilitating US COCOM / Agency
interoperability with:


NATO headquarters


Subordinate military commands


All NATO nations


Extending to other COCOMS


US BICES provides secure
, agile,
discrete, selective, and timely intelligence
and Special Operations information
sharing services with partner
nations


One of the most widely used
C4I information systems within the
US


NATO operations
-
intelligence
community


Provides a coalition intelligence sharing
enterprise presence in each Combatant
Command which can be extended to any
partner nation via bilateral networks
enabling rapid, secure and effective
exchanges of intelligence


US Owned Network with 12K U.S.
users, 3500 workstations at 200+ sites


Interconnected with 55,000 NATO
users in 25 countries


Provides access to:


All
-
Source, US, and NATO derived Intelligence
and Operations information


Secure Voice / Video Teleconferencing


Imagery


NRT Feeds


Biometrics


Streaming Video (UAV)

United States Battlefield Information Collection and Exploitation
Systems (US BICES)


Conclusion


In order for Intelligence Information to be Effective, it must be
Mainstreamed into current and future Intelligence and C2
Systems
