Last year’s addition of Stacked Charts in Debrief started the movement towards more free-flowing analysis using Debrief. Stacked Charts allowed the analyst to consider the relationships between any kind of data in Debrief. Traditionally Debrief had a tightly focused data model: platform tracks plus some sensor data. While new graphical annotations and cosmetic styling of
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.
We’re launching a new capability for a broader set of analysis. In addition to running standalone this tool will be seamlessly integrated into with Debrief. Why Do We Need a New Tool? Debrief traditionally enjoys a fixed data model, understanding precisely how to exploit, visualise and process each type of data. Over the years analysts
After 20 years of using the same colours, from 1st May 2015, Debrief gets a new color palette. Following the introduction of an alternative background colour set (Debrief’s background was always black before), the decision was made to introduce a new palette set of new colours. This was not only to help with a cleaner
Abstract Since last Autumn we’ve been working on a significant part of SATC (Semi Automatic Track Construction – see more here). The genetic algorithms in SATC are now quite mature, and do a good job of producing target tracks from bearing only data. But the analysts have had an ongoing chore – the need to
After several months of beta-testing the Natural Earth rendering has been merged into the master branch – and will now form part of the standard Debrief installation. All Debrief installations come with a small, low resolution Natural Earth dataset: But, it’s also possible to download and install two much higher resolution datasets (in a
Abstract A group of analysts were having trouble understanding the track followed by vessels in exercises from data collated from a number of sensors, They had a third party file converter for extracting data from Sonar S2087. When S2087’s file formats changed in 2014, the 3rd party converter became obsolete, and the analysts were stuck
Abstract This posting discusses a modification that was made to make Debrief’s calculated data more accessible to scientific users. Whilst Debrief has lots of tools for data analysis, it remains possible to export this data to a spreadsheet for external analysis.
