Digital Intelligence as a concept refers to the intelligent application of digital technology for digital advantage. In today’s fast-paced digital world, threats aren’t just real – they are constantly evolving and increasingly difficult to identify. To make the best decisions, commercial businesses, governments and armed forces need access to the best information in a timely and secure manner. This is what enables them to act confidently and effectively, even in the most demanding multi-domain environments.
The key is being able to establish secure digital threads across domains in order to bring different sources of information together – encompassing cyber, advanced analysis and analytics, communications, telemetry and more – to build a wider intelligence picture. The result? An enhanced ability to actively detect, anticipate and defend against threats, thereby staying one step ahead of adversaries. We believe this is critical to our customers’ future success, hence the name of our company: BAE Systems Digital Intelligence.
In a military context, digital intelligence can be used to deliver decision advantage to the current and future battlespace. We are entering an era of information warfare. Battles will increasingly be fought across multiple domains – land, air, sea, space and cyber – simultaneously, and will be driven by data derived from sensors on crewed and uncrewed platforms operating across all of these domains. Decisions involving many variables across a rapidly changing and complex threat landscape will need to be made in seconds.
Without sufficient digital intelligence, armed forces personnel will lack the coherence, connectivity, and insights required to visualise, exploit and disseminate trusted data at a speed that can outpace their adversaries. From making smarter use of data (eg for risk reduction and threat response) to communicating securely anytime and anywhere, delivering integration across multiple domains will be key to ensuring national security and resilience. And it all comes down to the intelligent application of digital technology – something that we here at BAE Systems Digital Intelligence know a lot about.
Digital Intelligence is essential for any entity that wants to gain and maintain an advantage in the digital world. Whether we’re talking about private hacking groups or hostile nation states, our adversaries are constantly becoming more technologically sophisticated. They are developing new ways to breach cyber defences and increasingly operating in the ‘grey zone’ of warfare characterised by activities such as election meddling, misinformation, and economic coercion.
With these trends only going to accelerate as technology continues to evolve, governments, armed forces and commercial organisations must be able to respond to today’s threats while positioning themselves for the future. This is where digital intelligence takes centre stage. From connecting the deployed battlespace across domains, to driving enhanced situational awareness and improving business resilience, we need digital intelligence in order to thrive in the connected world. It’s this landscape that inspired the formation of BAE Systems Digital Intelligence. Our name says it all.
