This department’s experts and analysts will provide clients with the highest level of professional research and intelligence services, tailored specifically to their needs.”
“Intelligence as a Service was designed to meet the needs of many countries and organizations for additional intelligence capabilities with the important strategic enhancement of space-based visual data. The service is also planned to include, in the future, on-the-job training for end-users to develop their independent capabilities in interrogating and processing data from multiple sources including satellites. Intelligence as a Service provides our customers detailed periodical reports with significant operational value.
“We are pleased that such an important customer in Africa realizes what enormous operational value our Intelligence as a Service can provide,” Segal said.
