Automation depending on sensor position – available now with the new ICAS 11 release!

PLATH is reliably following its road map and publishes a new software release after the scheduled development period. ICAS 11 improves implementation for mobile applications, improves support for customer-specific processes and offers new functions for signal processing. The new release enables new possibilities for users to improve their intelligence capabilities even more.

Unmanned mission support

ICAS - Intelligence Control and Analysis System - is successfully in use worldwide, independently of the environment – whether as a mobile application on land and sea or in a fixed application. ICAS 11 improves the mission capability for mobile applications, as tasks can now be started and also stopped dependent on sensor position. Beyond that, the individual sensor position in use can be displayed on the map, but then removed again during signal transmission so that the route cannot be traced later. With the new features, tasks, including for mobile use, can be prepared even better during mission planning, and, while the mission is running, unmanned missions especially are now easier to control.

Customer-specific columns in the signal table

Every customer has individual requirements and it therefore depends on the processes being adaptable according to need. With ICAS 11 that is possibly even more easily! With the new release, the ICAS signal model can be individually extended, e.g. with customer-specific columns such as mission, notes etc. These additional data are naturally also contained in reports and exports. This new feature allows the user to configure the information management individually and to adapt the specific requirements even better.

Extension of frequency-list management

ICAS has proved itself in practice as a high-performance intelligence platform that can process large data volumes. With the extension of the frequency-list management, the capacity of ICAS 11 has been increased even more. As a result, up to 50,000 elements, such as frequencies, frequency lists and categories can now be managed. Frequency lists can now contain up to 4,000 frequencies per list. With this extension, ICAS 11 can now manage 3-4 times as many elements and as a result supports use in complex signal scenarios even better.

If you are already a member of the ICAS community, we would be happy to inform you about the advantages of our comprehensive in-service support. With this you receive the latest updates and upgrades for the maximum performance of your system.
