ENGINEERING LINK ANALYSIS
ELA will add ISR integration and common intelligence picture to US and foreign partners
IME built Engineering Link Analysis (ELA) to fulfill the Army’s geospatial needs for both disconnected, intermittent, and low bandwidth (DIL) and connected environments. ELA provides DIL environment warfighters mapping technology on any laptop, tablet, or mobile device through thin-client mapping overlaid with intelligence information, providing a holistic Common Intelligence Picture (CIP) and user needs-driven, and easier-to-learn and -use platform while disseminating data.
ELA's technical approach is to provide a high-performance, thin-client map with overlays of intelligence data in disconnected, low bandwidth, and intermittent bandwidth modes. Our technology stack includes CesiumJS, HTML5, Cesium ION, and Microsoft SQL 2012 R2. Our development is in C# and Java Script with Apache for real-time calls to the database.
ELA brings mapping technology to the 'Last Tactical Mile' with Security Forces Assistance Brigade during deployments to CENTCOM, AFRICOM, and EUCOM.
Simple meets powerful.
Disconnected and Low Bandwidths
Intelligence is no longer restricted by disconnected and low bandwidth environments.
ISR and Drone Visualization
ELA is an integration powerhouse, bringing in cutting edge drone ISR feeds for direct ingestion, even in low bandwidth environments
Common Intelligence Picture
Intelligence is unified in all environments through ELA
CURRENT ELA IMPLEMENTATION
Employed with the Security Forces Assistance Brigades supporting CENTCOM, AFRICOM and SOUTHCOM
Letters of Justification identifying the gaps and operational warfighter needs (Commander, 2SFAB and Commander, 4SFAB)
Interoperable with WinTAK, ATAK and DCGS-A platforms
Technical Readiness Level of 9
Certificate of Networthiness on SIPR and NIPR
ELA achieved Technical Readiness Level (TRL) 7-9 in January 2019 and is fully fielded in Afghanistan
AUTONOMOUS UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEMS
As part of the ELA kit, IME equips and trains personnel on unmanned aerial systems.
ELA brings mapping technology to the 'Last Tactical Mile' and has been deployed to various locations around the globe with the Security Forces Assistance Brigades.
