Depictor

Intaero is proud to present Depictor, the result of many years of development and adaptation to numerous user requirements in a variety of military and civil applications. It is the core of the Intaero integrated solutions.

The architecture of Depictor is what sets it apart from its peers and competitors.  Displaying data is relatively easy, managing large data sets to display the right information at the right time and in the right geographic context is the challenge.

Many systems operate well in high bandwidth environments providing highly skilled and highly trained operators control them.  These systems are often overly complex and intimidating in other environments and other cultures.   Depictor was designed from the start to be carrier neutral and to operate over low bandwidth communication links and at the heart of the software is a database designed to be absolutely reliable in a world where 99.99% is not good enough.

Real Time Information

Depictor is effective in a world where the problems are constantly changing with new threats (often asymmetric), new sensors and new weapons.  It is one of the core enablers in the information grid that supports the move from platform centric to network centric operations.

User Interface

The Depictor Graphical User Interface is designed to be easy to use by non-technical and non-English speaking operators without loosing any of its many powerful functions.  It was also designed to offer the operator effective decision support without taking away the ultimate responsibility from the user.

Data Links

Depictor has been integrated with many data links such as the Link 16, Link 11, Link Y and the International Data Link.  We have also integrated directly to numerous radars including the TPS 70/72 and the giraffe. It is not enough to work with state of the art, modern, IP-based systems; Depictor also integrates with legacy equipment and supports joint operations within a powerful, Common Operating Environment.

Intelligent Software

Depictor is a real-time, software application that operates in a peer-to-peer, rather than server-client, environment. It integrates and fuses data from multiple sources and analyses the data for relevance and timeliness. It displays all information in a flexible, Open- GIS, 2D environment and can be interfaced to an interactive, Open-GL 3D environment. It incorporates a GIS-based front end enabling planning and mission analysis. The software securely disseminates information between nodes over low-bandwidth communications

Military Applications

Command & Control

Depictor is effectively a Decision Support Tool helping operators by

  • Displaying the right information
  • To the right people
  • At the right time
  • And in the right geo-spatial context

Systems Integration

Operational installations include multi-level air defence systems, fighter controller stations, air defence training, data link development, data link interoperability, communications management and the integration of multiple data sources into a Common Operating Environment.

Civil Applications

Depictor is well suited to homeland defence applications, enabling data from multiple sources to be displayed. This could include data and intelligence from different sensors, data streams and databases and legacy systems. It has also been used in maritime environment to monitor surface traffic and to assist in search and rescue operations.

Another application is the integration and display of weather data to monitor rainfall to assist in flood prediction. Additional integration to show GIS information such as ground heights gives added value to the predictions.

The core capabilities of Depictor make it ideal for monitoring and managing :

  • Transport security
  • Integrating tracking systems with business processes
  • Airport Security
  • Highway monitoring
  • Rail transport / people transport security and management
