BRO for Intelligence Gathering

The Need

A major challenge of today’s intelligence gathering mission is the acquisition of highly evasive targets of short duration. This challenge is typically addressed by advanced intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems working in multiple intelligence gathering disciplines, such as OMTI, GMTI, SAR and ELINT.


Yet the multiple capabilities of these ISR systems, and the vast amount of information they present to intelligence officers, are leading to decreased effectiveness in mission decision-making and performance. As a result, new solutions are required for improved performance of intelligence gathering missions.

Our Solution

BRO for Intelligence Gathering (BRO-IG) is an advanced system that optimizes planning, management and debriefing of intelligence gathering missions. BRO-IG enables efficient and optimal pre-mission and in-mission assignment of land, air and maritime intelligence resources – including optical, electro-optical, SIGINT, radar and SAR sensors and systems – according to specific mission goals.

The system can operate either independently or in conjunction with existing command and control (C4I) systems. Adapted to various operational levels from the battalion to the chief of staff HQ, BRO-IG empowers mission commanders to make better and faster decisions.

BRO-IG enables mission operators to overcome the complexity of intelligence technologies, sensors and control units, and to reduce the amount of operational and human resources required for successful mission performance.

Your Benefits

Enhanced quality/quantity of accumulated intelligence targets via optimal planning
Streamlined intelligence gathering process via real-time analysis
Increased responsiveness via reduced information overload and decision-maker workload
Improved decision-making via in-mission real-time analysis and recommendations

BRO-IG Products

BRO-IG Planner enables the mission planning team to estimate and maximize mission performance through optimized pre-mission planning:

  • Operational order generation: production of operational mission order that includes:
    • intelligence requirement analysis
    • area coverage for multisensory intelligence gathering operation
    • allocation of required systems and sensors
    • scanning patterns and flight paths (when applicable)
  • Operational order considerations: operational mission order based on “mission success criteria” taking into account:
    • capabilities of systems, sensors and platforms
    • targets of interest and enemy CONOPS
    • environmental conditions (weather, clutter, mutual interference)
    • redundancy, survivability and safety requirements

BRO-IG Commander delivers a range of real-time capabilities to the mission operations team for maximized mission management:

  • Performance monitoring/analysis: real-time system-wide mission performance monitoring and analysis, including system operability status, mission progress, and real-time environmental effects such as weather and EMI
  • Performance degradation alerts: real-time performance degradation alert generation due to changing mission conditions
  • Recommendations: real-time recommendations for optimal asset reallocation and mission order updating

BRO-IG Debriefer provides important information to BRO-IG Commander and allows the mission debriefing team to streamline and optimize the debriefing process:

  • Performance analysis: in-mission and post-mission performance analysis, taking into account earlier pre-mission planning
  • Log analysis: advanced analysis of mission logs (technical and operational)
  • Automatic model calibration: ongoing sensor model calibration and environment model calibration (e.g. up-to-date background interference) using mission logs, providing more accurate inputs for operational mission optimization
  • Anomaly detection: cutting-edge operational anomaly detection, as the basis for enhanced effectiveness
  • Data manipulation/visualization: user access to cutting-edge data manipulation and visualization tools, streamlining the operational and technical debriefing process
