Evolutionary Layered ISR Integration EXemplar Architecture (ELIIXAR)
Evolutionary Layered ISR Integration EXemplar Architecture (ELIIXAR) provides DST Group with an exemplar hardware and software framework that is now supporting the majority of our research into future integrated Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) solutions for Defence.
It allows DST researchers to understand how best to link together various ISR data sources and ISR exploitation and analysis tools onto a common integration backbone, which allows improved discovery, integration, and sharing of information with other Australian Defence Organisation (ADO) and Coalition partners - a goal that is core to Defence’s future warfighting concepts.
The research is now at a stage where investigations are being undertaken into ways that the ELIIXAR environment can be linked to similar frameworks developed overseas.
By conducting experiments on how these systems interact, DST will be able to inform Defence on how it can remain interoperable with other Defence Forces into the future.
