IED Recipe Detector

The IntuVIEW™ IED module detects documents, which refer to “recipes” for building explosives and chemical-based weapons while filtering out documents that refer to innocuous chemical-related issues. This is performed through propriety algorithms, which identify chemical substances, procedures, safety measures and amounts and match them with a large and comprehensive database of known "recipes" for improvised explosives used by terrorists.

 

This module contains:

  • An Ontology of relevant chemical substances, compounds, products, procedures and recipes and words and expressions relevant for the explosives domain.

  • Expert rules for inferring the types of explosive products and explosive devices which may be constructed using the components and processes mentioned in the documents.

The algorithms also infer the possible operational use of the products, taking into account the implications of the sensitivity, volatility, and amount of the produced explosive substance. This information can be useful in assessing whether the recipe is intended for use in explosive vests, car bombs, on aircrafts, etc.

 

Uses of IntuView IED include:

  • Employment in counter-terrorism operations for real-time detection and identification of explosives-related documents.

  • Integration in SIGINT for interception of documents with references to a preparation of explosive devices.

  • Open Source Intelligence for scanning of blogs and websites which provide instruction on preparation of explosive devices.

 

Configuration - The IntuView™ IED module can be used either as an integrated component of the IntuView™ system or as a standalone application for dealing only with explosives-related documents.
