Scenario planning. Run and rerun complex scenarios quickly to select the best courses of action.
Embed business rules and analytical results directly into your operational processes and tactical business systems to support the mission. Put historical and predictive insights at the fingertips of people when they need them. We deliver state-of-the-art analytics to help you:
Make faster, better decisions. With SAS, analytics and data management are built into your operational processes. And the results are delivered to leaders at just the right time, helping defense and security forces speed time to decision.
Operate more efficiently and productively. With automated data management and analytic processes, your resources can be more productive – which means less time spent on tedious processes, like manipulating data in spreadsheets, and accessing and integrating disparate data.
Stay focused on the mission. Make more informed decisions and support enduring mission needs with analytic engines that are fed by the most complete, accurate and up-to-date data possible.
More confident insights from a higher level of data transparency. Better utilization of talented, but scarce, resources. Greater efficiencies, lower costs and reduced risk in transforming data into decisions. Our software can help you manage and visualize your big data on a single platform – more productively than you ever thought possible – through:
Big data visualization. Visually explore huge volumes of data in just seconds. Then drill down in areas that require deeper analysis.
Data and intelligence sharing/integration. Work more effectively by integrating data from nearly any source, and interactively exchanging it among different platforms, to get a big-picture view of all relevant information needed to guide investigations and decision making
Real-time streaming data analysis. Make the right decisions – in real time – using high-velocity, streaming data that’s analyzed at the source.
Metadata management. Use an intuitive, web-based interface to understand the context of data, and share it across the community.
Text and unstructured data processing. Transform text and other unstructured data into useful information, and combine it with structured data for more thorough analysis.
Add geographic context to your data. Combine the power of SAS with the spatial analysis and cartographic capabilities in Esri to better explore, understand, analyze and deliver sound, spatially enabled analysis.
Derive intelligence you can act on from big data – from nearly any source and format, including Hadoop. Evaluate alternative courses of action. And make the right decisions faster, based on more complete data. With SAS, you can:
See what the data is trying to tell you. Use sophisticated visual analytics techniques to understand all relevant data – no matter how big or complex – and immediately see results. Make interacting with big data easy for everyone.
Conduct faster, deeper analysis on all your data assets. Bring together data from all sources – using your data analytics platform of choice – for a more comprehensive view of every situation. View circumstances from every possible angle. Identify anomalies or trends, and solve complex problems through advanced analytics. Then take quick, decisive action.
Reduce the burden of data preparation. Automatically extract, transform and load data from virtually any source. Cleanse and standardize data with minimal manual intervention. And do it all in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
A cohesive, analytics-based approach to tackling threats that’s both effective and efficient. A single platform and unified view for all agencies – across all stages of the intelligence life cycle. And early warnings – plus faster responses to security threats – today and tomorrow. We offer proven defense and security software for your highest priorities:
Greater efficiency. Process and analyze large volumes of information, then safely manage and disseminate it to improve intelligence, reduce crime and protect citizens.
Intelligence lifecycle management. Direct, track and audit information as it moves through systems – from planning and collecting to processing, analyzing and disseminating.
Border management. Give agents a complete picture of all information to dynamically distinguish between suspicious and legitimate travelers and freight.
Preventive policing. Analyze and simulate risks for more targeted, productive investigations and successful crime prevention.
Open-source intelligence and counterintelligence. Collect, visualize and analyze enormous amounts of structured and unstructured data from multiple intelligence sources. Then deepen knowledge and situational awareness by presenting results in graphical or geospatial formats.
Counterterrorism. Quickly find and assess terrorist risks posed by illegitimate travel and trade, and suspicious financial or cyberactivities.
Access, integrate, cleanse and standardize security data from virtually any source or format. Interactively exchange information across different platforms and agencies. And reduce security threats by uncovering hidden connections and sending alerts to people on the front lines. SAS helps you to:
Be more proactive. Correctly identify travelers using watch lists. Alert agents about high-risk passengers or cargo before they arrive. And accurately spot fraud and crime rings using predictive and text analytics.
Recognize all types of security threats. Quickly unearth previously unknown and abnormal patterns of behavior using data mining and predictive analytics. Spot the changing tactics of those trying to avoid detection using data that’s timely and relevant. And reveal unnoticed connections between suspicious entities using link analysis.
Keep the nation safe. Discover trends, patterns and sentiments in large volumes of multilingual content that may signal trouble. Use advanced statistical modeling, natural language processing and sophisticated linguistic technologies to automatically extract concepts and events. And apply scoring models to improve accuracy and reduce false positives.
The benefits of working with SAS extend beyond the functionality of the solutions. For Project Odyssey in general, and for us in particular, one of the key advantages of using SAS software was that it was backed by one of the world's leading and most highly respected software companies.
