Hear from our CEO about the Key OSINT Trends in 2024 Read Now

In this blog, we unveil the benefits of an all-source approach to intelligence with the new partnership and integration between i2 and Fivecast which unlocks the power of data fusion across classified and open-source data.

All-Source Intelligence

Users of i2’s powerful suite of analytical tools, including Analyst’s Notebook, Analysis Studio, and Analysis Hub recognize the immense power and actionable insights derived from layering disparate data sources onto a single chart for analysis. Users of Fivecast’s premium Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) solutions understand the incredible ability of publicly available data to support and augment full-spectrum analytical tasks designed to safeguard communities and defeat malign actors, their networks, and their whereabouts. Patterns of life, problematic connections, and ties to sanctioned entities can all be revealed with the sophisticated suite of tools available with Fivecast.

Differing file formats, isolated programs, and siloed platforms represent a significant challenge to All Source analysts. These compatibility issues can hinder the ingestion, analysis, and dissemination of critical intelligence, and lengthen the time needed to go from data to decisions.

Breaking Down Intelligence Silos with data fusion

While the fusion of data sources is a common technique meant to strengthen conclusions and reduce reliance on sole-source information, analytical teams often leverage multiple platforms, conducting isolated steps in each system and porting over data from one platform to another to see the full picture. Compatibility issues, a lack of uniform data outputs, and ad hoc migrations to classified systems can delay or frustrate efforts to bring a coherent picture into focus and degrade the timeliness of intelligence by slowing delivery. Fivecast and i2 recognized this and have taken proactive steps to reduce this delay and are excited to introduce a new mechanism to fuse the OSINT capabilities of Fivecast ONYX with i2’s Analysis Studio and Analysis Hub.
