SRI’s Center for Systems and Signals Technology (CSST) is an industry leader in providing high-performance signals processing solutions, open source intelligence, and analytics.
Signals Intelligence (SIGINT)
CSST's signals processing team provides outstanding support to the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community as the lead on a major signals processing subsystem for National Programs. Expertise includes signal detection, characterization, and geo-location in dense signal environments including the system architecture to provide rapid processing. CSST is expanding this capability into the tactical signals processing arena.
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)
CSST has a proven capability to automatically collect and normalize large quantities of open source data. Our contribution to OSINT programs has combined open source maritime data with national sources’ data to produce the most comprehensive collection of openly available maritime information. We provide context to the content, a much needed capability in today’s large data environment. Our exploitation system implements a generalized platform for non-attributable discovery, collection, ingestion, normalization and storage of disparate data from open source repositories.
CSST has recently added analytics to its capabilities list, particularly in the areas of decision optimization, predictive analysis, forecasting, and statistical modeling. CSST’s expertise enhances the increasing requirement for data transformation to knowledge. Virtual Personal Assistance (VPA) is transitioning the artificial intelligence created in DARPA projects into analytic processing. VPA enables ‘just ask for it’ user interaction, allowing for multi-source data exploitation while reducing mundane tasks enabling more time for true analysis.
