New Feature Release: Paste Rep from Clipboard

0 Comments
We’re coming to the end of another new feature. Most of the time Debrief data comes in digital form, captured on another system. But, occasionally it arrives in text form and has to be transcribed. Some users do this within Debrief, others perform the task in a text editor such as Notepad, then save the

New Feature: SVG Symbols

0 Comments
Symbols are used to add value to analysis plots, through giving a visual indication of the vehicle type. In the past, the symbols have been hard-coded in Debrief, but now Debrief supports the provision of vectored symbols in the industry standard SVG format. The first set of symbols is shown below. Please feel free to

Sprint 3 – Debrief Lite

0 Comments
Sprint 3 has largely been behind-the-scenes efforts to get ready for some upcoming significant features (especially Debrief Lite). An automated build/test of Debrief Classic is now performed on every commit, and it’s now included in every release (rebadged as Debrief Lite). This has allowed us to de-risk the eventual builds of Debrief Lite proper. Debrief

Lightweight Tracks

0 Comments
In today’s release we’re including a technical demonstrator for Lightweight Tracks. Some analysis tasks require the analysis of traffic passing through the exercise area. This could come from radar, AIS or IFF, and can be hundreds (or even thousands) of tracks. But, in traditional Debrief practice, all tracks sit at the top level of the

Two dimensional datasets

0 Comments
Continuing from the previous article regarding support for non-time datasets, we’re now going to consider how to collate two non-time indexed dataset to produce a 2D dataset that can be displayed as a heat map. Background The big picture objective is to view a two-dimensional plot containing the signal strength from a transmitter (tx) mapped

Datasets indexed by non-time data

0 Comments
A shortcoming of the initial backend datastore for Limpet (learn more here: http://limpet.info) was that it could only store datasets that were indexed by time.  This had little impact, since Limpet was only being used for analysis of time-stamped data. But, for the second phase of support for multi-static analysis, Limpet must store data indexed

Exploring the Tactical Overview

0 Comments
For the last year we’ve been steadily progressing Debrief’s data analysis capabilities (read last year’s introduction here), adding features in packages focussed on analysts’ requirements. The first major realisation of this is in Debrief’s new Tactical Overview display, which will be released later on today. This posting will give you an overview of the capability.

Project Lead

Ian Mayo (from Deep Blue C Technologies) has been developing and maintaining Debrief since 1995, and helping users perform effective analysis and deliver persuasive results.

He has studied and worked in the Marine Technology environment since 1987, and the defence-specific domain since 1992. Back in 1990 he developed the predecessor to the modern electronic navigational chart as part of his Master of Philosophy Research Degree from the University of Plymouth, UK.

Since then he has worked on surface and submarine command systems, oceanographic support systems, and developed a range of tools related to the development, management and analysis of maritime exercises using both web and desktop technologies.
