JISR in Area of Operation
It is fundamental to gain all the possible information and characteristics if aiming to dominate in a battlefield or a controlled area. Joint Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (JISR) is a military branch which brings extensive data from an area of operation to a commander. The company of JISR Institute is a group of subject matter experts from various disciplines, such as Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic Warfare (EW), Suppression of Enemy Air Defense (SEAD), Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) or Special Operations. The institute role is to support a customer since the challenge analysis until the training and evaluation phase. We do not develop technologies. Our goal is to build up new capabilities by putting subject matter experts and cooperating technology producing companies together. Our effort always directs at the analysis of existing technologies and processes to extend it and make more efficient. As a part of presentation, some existing solutions from ISR and EW domains will be shortly introduced.
