Most people are united by the desire to live without worries in a peaceful and free world. However, the real world is quite different. Terrorism, war and riots lead to a growing need for security. Prevention of and response to conflicts of this nature requires in particular communications intelligence - an increasingly complex task due to the continuous increase in data volume and the growing range of communication media.
Within the field of communications intelligence (COMINT), electronic warfare (EW) and intelligence control management (ICM), PLATH specialises in providing solutions tailored to customer-specific requirements. PLATH´s commitment to ensuring security means to support the customer in the preservation of internal and external security, both in the civil and the military sector.
Seamless real-time intelligence is essential - whether in securing national borders and forces, the global fight against terrorism, spectrum monitoring or other areas of the civil sector. The intelligence systems have to identify reliably any threat as early and as comprehensively as possible.
Communication via radio technologies, such as voice and data transmission, mobile transmission, satellite transmission, and any communication via IP must be detected, analysed, visualised and evaluated continuously in order to provide precise intelligence. Large data volumes have to be processed within a very short time to deliver real-time situation reports as a basis for decision-making. To cope with all these challenges, PLATH offers sensor-independent solutions covering the entire intelligence cycle "from sensors to knowledge".
PLATH´s broad portfolio includes products and solutions for acquisition, analysis, evaluation and visualisation of communications signals. Antennas, receivers and direction finders by PLATH enable the customer to monitor an area of interest as well as to detect, to record and to locate communications signals. Up-to-date demodulators and decoders by PLATH analyse and store all technical parameters of the signals and provide information for identification and tasking of automated systems. In order to generate knowledge PLATH also offers innovative software to evaluate the content and the communication behaviour, to visualise network structures and to display the situation on a map.
All products can easily be connected via a sensor-independent platform to build a customer-specific solution, which handles the mass data and aggregates automatically all the obtained information to build up a precise overall situation picture. Thus PLATH´s technology provides the user with a better understanding of the overall situation in nearly real-time, which enables him to respond faster.
PLATH´s solutions can be deployed on mobile and semi-mobile platforms as well as in stationary mode, and can be adapted to various environments. The configuration of the solutions depends on customer´s specific requirements. Open interfaces enable integration into existing systems and the modular structure ensures scalable solutions. Standardised graphical user interfaces foster universal acceptance and save training expenditures. PLATH´s solutions are sturdy and durable, which will reduce lifecycle costs.
Founded in 1954, the owner-operated and independent company PLATH is now the technology leader in its industry. Due to its expertise, PLATH established itself as a sought-after partner for projects of all sizes with completely compatible solutions for COMINT, EW and ICM from one hand. The core elements of PLATH´s solutions are developed and manufactured in-house by PLATH Group in Germany or Switzerland, which guarantees precision and quality.
From the very first contact, the solution design, the on-site integration and the installation until the faultless operation of every solution the customer is accompanied by experienced PLATH project managers. With regards to service and maintenance, the motivated and highly qualified PLATH personnel cooperate very close with the customer around the globe.
To complete the professional services portfolio PLATH also offers a comprehensive training programme in COMINT, EW and ICM. With basic courses, system trainings and customised training programmes PLATH helps the customer with the transfer of knowledge and system skills. The theoretical and practical training is available at PLATH sites or on-site at customer´s organisation.
