BAE launches new intelligence automation centre

20th August 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has launched a new Robotic Operations Center (ROC), which will be used to customise and deploy suites of software robots that automate high-volume, repetitive tasks in support of US defence and intelligence operations. 

The ROC builds on BAE’s partnership with UiPAth that involves leveraging machine learning and robotic process automation (RPA) tools to convert large volumes of data into useful intelligence, bringing large-scale automation to IT operations.  

‘The emphasis on security is driving a significant increase in the collection of data across the IT enterprise, giving analysts access to more data in greater detail than ever before,’ Peder Jungck, vice president/general manager of Intelligence Solutions at BAE Systems, said. 

‘RPAs augment a human analyst’s capability by allowing them to focus on high-value tasks – rather than tedious and repetitive actions – leading to faster and better decision-making.

‘The ROC streamlines IT operations, helping customers to take advantage of the vast sea of information to improve responsiveness while reducing cost and security risk.’

BAE’s ROC offers best practices and standardisation of software robots - known as bots - which can be deployed at the server or enterprise level or in a cloud environment to automate a variety of tasks. 

The ROC enforces security and governance measures for both attended and unattended bots, an important factor when scaling automation to hundreds or thousands of bots. 

BAE also offers customers onsite assistance to deploy the bots and implement the RPA technology.

‘RPA technology allows for automation of legacy and disparate IT systems, integration of business processes, and structuring of large data sets, which can improve efficiency and reduce operating costs,’ Jon Dorn, acting chief technology officer of BAE’s Intelligence and Security sector, added.

‘We use our expertise in defence and intelligence to provide customers with a tailored solution that meets the highest security standards.’
