Today"s intelligence exploitation has an information challengethere is a great deal of data being processed by a large number of analysts with insufficient ability to identify anomalies in the data. The process needs a capability that can facilitate a rapid understanding of complex information sources, resolving the issues that today"s intelligence analyst faces in detecting threats, anomalies, and potential exploits. 21st Century Systems, Inc., is proud to introduce SeRADe, an innovative concept to address the anomaly detection problem in a context-free manner. Utilizing a meta-learning approach and a small sample of anomaly detectors, SeRADe will yield a rich capability for ingesting real-world data and identifying anomalies that could indicate potential hostile behavior, or even a friendly accident in the making. SeRADe will enable the analyst to quickly find information while monitoring the data to prevent an intelligence failure to occur. SeRADe detects anomalies without the need for a large scale ontology or knowledge base, and instead learns from existing anomaly approaches. SeRADe"s innovation, coupled with our superlative record for commercializing SBIR technologies, makes 21CSi the company most likely to get this capability into the hands of the intelligence analyst.
