Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced its national SIGINT center has successfully achieved phase I operational capability with an undisclosed customer. Developed by IAI/ELTA, the center integrates and fuses all the nation's SIGINT sensors at a strategic level using big data and high-throughput real-time data processing. This is the first time that a SIGINT center has been developed to handle such large amounts of sensors and data, creating national level Electronic Order of Battle (EOB) from ground, airborne and other sensors, and integrating all sources into a unified national SIGINT Database. Following this successful milestone, the customer has entered an enhancement program, implementing some more advanced capabilities. 

The center provides increased SIGINT mission availability using ad-hoc sensors on various platforms, as well as an increase of SIGINT 'Probability of Intercept' (POI) and accuracy. The system supports net-centric mode and offers enhanced mission support including mission-planning tools, reporting tools, extensive analysis and real time simulator and trainer.

"Using highly sophisticated algorithms and advanced planning and analysis tools, the SIGINT center is a force multiplier," said Nissim Hadas, IAI Executive VP & ELTA President. "We are very pleased to have achieved this milestone. Proceeding to enhance the center capabilities is the best vote of confidence from we could get from our customer."
