General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (GA-ASI) is highlighting its System for Tasking and Real-time Exploitation (STARE) surveillance consolidation platform at the Dubai Airshow. The system gathers surveillance information from GA-ASI platforms and makes it easy to decipher and disseminate, the company explained.

Earlier this year, GA-ASI (Stand 1480) purchased Commonwealth Computer Research, which had developed the Optix moving-map display platform. Now GA-ASI uses Optix as a key component of STARE, which combines real-time and historical data from a variety of sources. Using “big data” processing and analytics, it eases observation and interpretation of strategic and tactical data on the Optix moving map while reducing the number of people needed to monitor the various information sources.

STARE can also alert users to anomalous behavior, “using artificial intelligence to automatically look for activities or behaviors of interest,” according to GA-ASI. The company cited examples such as vessel-to-vessel transfers, failure to broadcast AIS, and violating economic exclusion zones, all of which show on the moving map once detected.
