Socrates CO provides a complete picture of situation awareness, common to all scenario elements. It supports data exchange among network clients (mobile and desktop) providing SOA interfaces to interact with external systems.

Socrates FR is a particular instance of the Socrates CO system specifically designed for emergency teams and to be installed in mobile units.

Socrates TSK is an innovative solution following an SOA architecture that meets the need to assign different sensor tasks in multinational environments or among agencies for border surveillance missions including decision aid tools to optimize resources.

Socrates SET is used for:

  • Imagery exploitation. Implementing advanced capabilities for exploiting images (image chipping, georeferencing, image correction, image annotation)
  • Video exploitation. Video player with simultaneous reproduction of several videos, presentation of KLV metadata, recording of video clips, generation of screenshots.
  • Tracking and merging. Implementing state-of-the-art algorithms for tracking and merging GMTI tracks with Link 16 tracks.

This is a data repository with data mining capabilities. It also provides advanced reporting (predefined reports, dynamic reports, georeporting).
