Interactive ISR Exploitation Report (i2exrep)

Software for the creation and processing of formalized exploitation result reports


In sensor-based reconnaissance, the data provided by the sensor is interpreted by highly specialized evaluators and the results of the evaluation process are summarized in a formalized mission result message. This message contains the identified objects, their position, type, status, activities, and other information relevant to a higher-level decision maker. To ensure unambiguous interpretation and a high degree of interoperability and automatic further processing, a message is subject to strict regulations regarding the structure and the vocabulary to be used. For this reason, the processor requires extensive and easy-to-use computer support in order to create messages that are correct in terms of content and form in as short a time as possible.


i2exrep - Interactive ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) Exploitation Report is an interactive, Java and XML-based software for creating and editing formalized mission result reports. Developed in particular for the military intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance process, i2exrep is also suitable for use in civilian environments (disaster control, police, rescue forces, medicine).
i2exrep was created as part of an in-house research project at Fraunhofer IOSB and is constantly being further developed against the background of operational requirements.
By using state-of-the-art technologies, i2exrep is platform and database independent and has a wide range of applications.
