ISR Training course (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance)

ISR Training is a 3-day course where participants learn the concepts and architecture of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance. This course is especially useful for engineers, technical professionals, project managers and analysts.

Army Cyber Warfare and Defensive Operations Training by Tonex

The U.S. Department of Defense believes intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) assets are critical to US military dominance.

ISR systems range in size from hand-held devices to satellites. ISR systems collect and process insights from unstructured data. These insights are used to support lighting fast information transfer for making more informed decisions in the field.

ISR provides decision-makers and action-takers with a better situational awareness of the conditions on the ground, in the air, at sea, in space and in the cyber domain.

ISR also makes for an effective team effort when allies work together to collect, analyze and share information to maximum effect.

The challenge for the DoD is how to process the exponentially growing ISR data from multiple sources and gain actionable intelligence from these data sources. The workforce required to process this data manually would be enormous and would struggle to execute their missions in competition and combat at a pace greater than the enemy.

Consequently, the DoD is turning to AI for help because AI delivers insights from ISR faster.

Additionally, AI automation speeds video footage review by many orders of magnitude and reduces the number of analysts needed for a given mission objective. AI also shortens the time to get actionable intelligence for quick decision-making in the field. Computer Vision and AI platforms play a key role in ISR’s ability to classify, detect, and track objects in images and video.

Military experts also believe AI can improve situational awareness, accelerate decision-making, and reliably find, fix, and target elusive targets deep within enemy territory.

Today, ISR capabilities also play an important role in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. ISR assets help identify for first responders, federal civil agencies, and government and private aid organizations, the areas where relief efforts should be focused and what kind of supplies and aid victims need.
