Every nation strives to protect and secure its citizens, natural resources, assets and way of life. At, within and beyond a nation's borders, the interest is in the prevention of incidents and reduction of impacts. Each mission requires national intelligence for developing plans, assessing vulnerabilities, and responding with current and accurate situational awareness.
Now is the time to invest in GIS, a sophisticated mapping technology that has helped many organizations overcome operational challenges and drive improved response. It leverages all of the geographically-referenced data that exists in your existing systems -- such as sensors, imagery, surveillance, personnel and equipment data -- to uncover what might not otherwise be visible or understood in a multipage report or complex spreadsheet.
ArcGIS is a robust platform that allows you to manage, analyze and display your data so that you can make the best, most informed decisions. It gives everyone in your organization the ability to discover, use, make and share information and maps from any device, anywhere, anytime.
Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT)
Integrate imagery and geospatial data with other intelligence to create products critical to national intelligence, national security and defence.
Critical Infrastructure Protection
Model, simulate and assess risks to critical infrastructure for emergency assessment, preparation, response and recovery.
Connect decision making across multiple defence networks and beyond through a more integrated, enterprise approach.
Most national defence decisions involve geography. Whether assessing potential terrorist targets, planning where to strike on the battlefield or deciding where to locate a new military operations site with minimal environmental impact, geography always comes into the equation.
GIS software plays an increasingly important role in making these types of decisions. Our solutions provide you with the tools to unlock and reveal meaningful patterns in your geospatial data and provide the intelligence support you need for mission success.
Gain the ability to capture, manage, analyze and display geographically referenced information to obtain a clear picture of your data and the many complex relationships behind it. Create a Common Operational Picture (COP) to leverage unprecedented geospatial intelligence.
Directly embed geospatial capabilities into your mainstream command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications and share geospatial information across defence networks.
Control & Command
Improve situational awareness and operational readiness by empowering commanders with better information, when and where they need it.
Installation & Environment
Create interoperable, open and enterprise-wide applications to manage facilities, utilities, the environment, security, cultural resources, and other defence installation infrastructure.
Defence & Force Health Protection
Visualize occupational and environmental hazards; track evacuees, casualties and high-value medical equipment; and perform disease surveillance and epidemiology research.
Create a shared environment for federal, provincial and municipal governments to manage and exchange vast amounts of information about threats and alerts.
Whether it’s to gain a better understanding of immigration, illegal trafficking or defending against potential hostile actions from international or national actors, GIS enables spatial analysis to understand trends and protection priorities. It provides national security personnel the ability to visualize and quickly understand the results and necessary actions. Ultimately, it transforms data into actionable intelligence.
Today, many national security stakeholders successfully deploy Esri GIS software and services to support the tasks and responsibilities for the their missions. ArcGIS is a foundational technology capable of combining disparate data, analyzing trends and behaviors, and providing and sharing actionable information.
Using advanced methodologies, innovative tools and custom applications, ArcGIS integrates large volumes of disparate data and current workflows to produce actionable intelligence that can be quickly delivered to decision makers throughout your organization.
GIS can play a major role in cutting costs, saving time and making the most of limited resources across the national security organization through open standards to ensure maximum interoperability.
You can apply maps and analysis to many areas of operational readiness including logistics, personnel, health, special investigations and training.
Common Operating Picture (COP)
A COP integrates geospatial intelligence with real-time data, applications and other resources for unparalleled insight and a shared view of operational processes to achieve situational awareness.
