Single synthetic environment technology demonstrator developed
Adarga has announced that it has been awarded a contract from UK technology company Improbable Defence business, to integrate its technology to support the second year of building a Single Synthetic Environment (SSE) Technology Demonstrator for UK Strategic Command, the major organisation of the British Armed Forces responsible for leading integration across all domains - cyber, space, maritime, land and air.
Through its capability for reading and understanding multiple, diverse data sources, Adarga supports multi-domain, decision support and mission planning. The highly granular detail provided by Adarga’s Event Detection feature supports the SSE Technology Demonstrator by identifying and locating mission critical events in real time.
The SSE being jointly developed by Improbable and UK Strategic Command delivers a simulation demonstrator which models the conventional physical domains (maritime, land and air) as well as aspects of space, cyber and the information environment. The simulation brings together models of physical elements such as weather, terrain and infrastructure networks with more abstract systems such as social, political and economic ones; and enables the exploration of the causal relationships and interdependencies between them.
The SSE combines inputs from a diverse ecosystem of other technical applications, models and data (some of them powered by cutting-edge data analytics and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning technologies) supplied by ecosystem partners from across industry, government and academia, all integrated and hosted on Improbable’s synthetic environment platform.
The SSE has the potential to enable decision-makers at every level – from political to tactical – to test and rehearse policy choices and military courses of action in a rigorous, data-driven way. This will allow them to assess probable consequences with a far greater and more data-driven level of confidence than has previously been achievable.
The second year will see the development and expansion of this prototype SSE into a cloud-based tool which will enhance users’ planning and decision-making.
