Product Details

MAAS web capabilities allow authorized users to access data with standard web browsers. MAAS is compatible with the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Integrated Backbone (DIB). Analysts can query, select, retrieve and display products from the DIB. MAAS continues to evolve and is currently moving toward virtual and other webbased capabilities to support future enterprise requirements including Joint Information Environment (JIE) and Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise (IC CITE).

  • Streaming and capture capabilities support all-phase analysis and enable operators and decision makers
  • Fast discovery of data supports time dominant activities: Fully searchable FMV and multi-INT library enables analysts to quickly develop actionable intelligence for decision makers
  • Efficient Forensics: Automated services reduce workloads and increase analytic output based on relevant data
  • Frame accurate capture services provide full-frame coverage enabling change detection analysis
  • Scalable from laptops to enterprise architectures
  • Cloud Enabled: Web-based tools allow analysts with standard web browsers to discover and utilize MI data
  • Clipmark to target associations enable target based analysis, key to pattern of life and activity-based intelligence (ABI)
  • Target based analysis capability
