Leader José Ramón Casar Corredera/Ana Mª Bernardos Barbolla

Strategic Areas Data Engineering & Digital Transformation Remote Sensing & Space


On October 22, José R. Casar presented the activi-ties of IPTC in Data Science and Engineering to the Captech Information Committee (Communication, Information Systems and Networks) of the European Defense Agency (EDA), formed by representatives of the MoD of the majority of the European countries and some big companies. The presentation was the keynote of a meeting-workshop celebrated at GMV premises to present the ABIDE project to the Committee and to hold a number of brainstorming sessions on the challenges and technologies of Big Data and AI in Decision Making.ABIDE is a project financed by the EDA and performed cooperatively by GMV and IPTC-UPM, whose objectives are the improvement in perfor-mance of C4ISR systems at EU level through the application of BD & AI techniques to Defence deci-sion-making support, the enhancement of quality of information and the identification of ways of providing a shared situational awareness.The study is focusing on the following potential benefits of seamless integrating intelligence sources: SIGINT, HUMINT and IMINT, analysing the level of AI needed to support operators to interact permanently with the system and reducing human workload in the field of information management and restoring human added value whenever it is necessary for the interpretation of the information.The presentation of the results was made by José L. Delgado on the GMV side and Juan A. Besada and Ana M. Bernardos on IPTC side, who also mod-erated the brainstorming sessions with the Captech members.
