Data Analytics & Reporting

Accipiter’s patented M Target Information System (TIS) is the heart of every Accipiter® surveillance system. Within our TIS are the target data collected by the system sensors, updated in real-time with new information and historically spanning years into the past.  These target data include (i) full target trajectories for every tracked target, where each trajectory has an assigned target-ID along with a series of time updates each containing {latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, heading, size (radar cross section), date, time}; (ii) event data such as alerts and complex events defined by specific target behaviour; (iii) sensor imagery; and (iv) other meta data that help characterize the environment and the targets found therein.

The big data contained in the TIS is organized as a highly efficient and secure data warehouse intended to be analyzed in order to (i) characterize target behaviour / trends and provide standardized reporting; (ii) search for particular behaviours or events of interest; and (iii) to investigate specific incidents and provide incident reports.  Accipiter’s analysts can support your mission by providing you with any of these data analytics and reporting services.

Target Activity Reporting Service

Understanding the rhythmic and seasonal traffic patterns associated with vessels on waterways, aircraft movements, or birds in flight is essential for situational awareness and risk mitigation. Accipiter analysts will work with you to define, generate and deliver to you standard target activity reports such as:

Daily traffic patterns hour to hour
Weekly traffic patterns versus day of week
Monthly traffic patterns day by day
Seasonal traffic patterns such as winter, spring, summer and fall
Annual and year-over-year traffic patterns

Target Behaviour Analysis Service

Understanding the presence of, frequency of, and nature of specific target behaviours is critical for identifying hazards to safety and security, measuring risk, and alerting authorities to take additional action. Accipiter analysts will work with you to define, extract and report to you target behaviours of interest such as:

Vessels or low-flying aircraft crossing borders and entering specific exclusion zones
Drones loitering in a controlled or sensitive airspace
Birds crossing active runways or approaching wind turbines or tailings ponds

Incident Investigation and Reporting Service

When a safety or security incident occurs, safety and security professionals need to quickly understand what happened to support the incident investigation, response and prosecution, as well as for training and process improvement. Accipiter analysts will work with you to discreetly investigate and report on incidents such as:

Bird strikes
Search and rescue incidents
Unusual target reports such as drone sightings
Suspicious events such as an unusual border crossings or rendezvous
