Are your intelligence analysts spending too much time searching for and collecting information, and not enough time analyzing it? Is information availability turning into information overload? How can you improve the productivity and the effectiveness of your resources?
We develop intelligence analysis and operations software that enables automated, intelligent operation and collaboration for criminal investigators, intelligence analysts, command center operators, first responders and commanders. We address the challenge of locating critical information in many places:
- subscription data services
- criminal records databases
- case management systems
- incident reports
- motor vehicle
- firearm owner's & corrections records
- sensor streams
Our sophisticated tools make connections, find relevance, patterns, trends, and help users extract, understand and operationally analyze critical data when and where it’s needed.
RiverGlass Solutions for Fusion Centers is the “force multiplier” needed to find, gather, interpret and act on the ever-growing volume, variety and velocity of data to detect and mitigate threats, and respond to incidents. Simply adding more personnel will not solve the problem. The most critical issue facing intelligence operations is keeping pace with the continuous generation of new, disparate and obscure data. Tools that continuously analyze and automatically connect incoming data to open investigations are a necessity for intelligence-led security and policing.
Our advanced analytics driven procedures – built on law enforcement and intelligence libraries – scan the internet and query accessible data sources to gather relevant documents. RiverGlass advanced analytics correlate information to find previously undetected or unknown facts, patterns, trends or connections. It then presents the information in meaningful, easy-to-understand visualizations and automatically-generated summary reports:
- link charts
- historical timelines
- cluster diagrams
- extracted content views
- person or event profiles
Since these search and analytic functions are performed automatically, analysts can spend their valuable time reviewing and acting upon the rich information provided to them.
RiverGlass automation and intelligent operations provide users situational awareness and actionable intelligence to take learned action to detect and mitigate threats, solve critical problems and make informed decisions to manage an effective and timely operational response.
The most critical issue facing intelligence operations is keeping pace with the continuous generation of new, disparate and obscure data. Tools that continuously analyze and automatically connect incoming data to open investigations are a necessity for intelligence-led security and policing. RiverGlass assists the public law enforcement and intelligence sectors by applying our sophisticated machine-learning techniques for culling data from within different legal entities, analyzing disparate data and addressing the information problems facing intelligence analysts today. For example,
- intelligence agencies turn to RiverGlass for "open source" search, collection and analysis for threat detection
- defense organizations and executive leadership entities use RiverGlass for situational awareness, supporting decision-making in command and control
- law enforcement agencies benefit from our data fusion solutions in counter-narcotics, counter-terrorism, violent and internet predator crimes, and other information-critical endeavors
RiverGlass and the Statewide Terrorism Intelligence Center (STIC) of the Illinois State Police have jointly developed a suite of tools tailored to the specific needs of analysts working in a fusion center environment. Along with unique visualizations and analytics, this collaboration has produced a knowledge base of more than 85,000 highly relevant terms — to both enhance and simplify analytical results. This RiverGlass public safety ontology contains data definitions of the entities important to a fully-compliant extension of the Global Justice XML standard.
The end result is an analytics solution specifically geared toward fusion centers and other government intelligence agencies, enabling them to gain and maintain a complete intelligence picture, 24/7.
