Abstract
Tactical Counter-insurgency (COIN), counter-terrorism, and anti-piracy operations require a combination of human and machine-based ISR collections to be accelerated through the Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (PED) processes to support rapid kill chain. GeoTRAC (Geolocation and Tactical Reconnaissance Application for COIN) will demonstrate a handheld warfighter application enabling units conducting SIGINT operations to intercept RF threat emitters, remotely task geolocation services to locate the emitter, cross-cue full-motion video (FMV) sensors onboard UAS to stream video of the target, retrieve audio from remote RF sensors and prepare multi-INT collection reports for unit-level action and higher echelon reporting. Optionally, GeoTRAC will demonstrate peer-to-peer collaboration enabling audio distribution and remote translation services. GeoTRAC offers rapid transition opportunities by augmenting existing tactical geolocation services including Navy Hostile forces Integrated Targeting Service (HITS), SOCOM Joint Threat Warning System (JTWS), Marine Corps RAPTOR (undergoing forward-deployed evaluation for transition to Team Portable Collection System [TPCS]), and classified Army systems. Related developments in mobile tactical cellular infrastructure for swarm communications provide the basis for transition of GeoTRAC handheld devices. Rapid integration with existing SIGINT operators already leveraging PC-based networked applications provides a cadre of end-users for field utility evaluations, application development inputs, and CONOP development for rapid transition opportunities.
