The goal of the VIRTUOSO project is to provide security forces with a set of advanced tools for processing all types of information obtained from open sources to aid in decision making and integrated in an open, standard and inter-operable framework.
This project has given rise to the creation of a framework based on open-source software elements that allow for the integration of tools for gathering, processing and analysing information from open sources, crafting intelligence and conveying said intel to the decision makers.
This middleware platform enables the plug & play integration of various features, as well as the use of data originating in a broad spectrum of sources, media and formats, while at the same time ensuring high compatibility between different technology providers.
VIRTUOSO is aimed at aiding in decision-making processes by offering analyses and research in areas such as country analysis, current and emerging trend evaluation, risk evaluation, early warning, scenario planning and strategic management, all in various areas (financial, political, social, technological, etc.) and, in particular, in the field of security and defence.
