The Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) enterprise deemed their use of sensors and the processes required to conduct the targeting cycle to be inefficient.
Defence has multiple weapon systems in service, most of which operate as standalone elements with the outputs requiring multiple layers of automated or human translation into any joint awareness system. The challenge was to make all sensors and effectors on the network available to the joint force and automate sensor operation.
Sigma Bravo and Jericho Disruptive Innovation worked in partnership to design, develop and demonstrate a working distributed platform agnostic sensor and effector grid.
The Mosaic Network includes a range of EW, ADS-B, AIS, Pan / Tilt / Zoom cameras, and drone detection sensors all of which publish their sensor data across the network.
We incorporated flexible 3-dimensional areas of interest that allow customizable responses to events or triggers. This enables the complete automation of sensor operation and subsequent targeting of entities that meet operator search criteria.
The Mosaic Network system automates sensor operation with the only humans in the system being the decision makers.
This flexible, multi-sensor experimentation environment is
capable of use across the joint force to explore future operating concepts using real sensors and networks.
The system demonstrates how rapid capability insertion can be accomplished through connecting sensors and effectors to warfighting networks rather than relying on expensive and time-consuming integration onto major platforms.
