PLATH presents new cross-system solution SDI Core powered by AI at AOC

PLATH AOC Intelligence Day: AI-supported solutions
PLATH AOC Intelligence Day reconnaissance in challenging situations. Discover the future of defense technology at AOC Europe in Oslo.

In a world of increasingly complex crisis scenarios, reconnaissance requires one thing above all: reliable, scalable applications that generate the right situational picture in every situation. That´s why we have worked on cross-system solutions that use a central, scalable AI unit which uses artificial intelligence to improve the performance of the connected systems, reduce the operator's workload and accelerate the OODA loop. Such a system can, for example, include our high-performance, compact COMINT system NEMO, which can be used land-based, naval, airborne or in shelters. We have given this system the name SDI Core and present it from Monday, 13 May at the AOC Europe in Oslo at our booth C 10 in hall B. In regular presentations we will show a use case of how the SDI Core can lead to improved reconnaissance results in ground-to-air cross-domain operations with a UAV. We also invite you to join us at the PLATH Intelligence Day taking place on Monday where we present the SDI Core for the very first time. Now in its 13th year, the industry event is again the prelude to the AOC Europe and brings the community together to discuss the latest developments following impulses from various specialist presentations - including on highly topical issues such as artificial intelligence and software-defined defense.
