EADS in Major Intelligence Play
According to IntelligenceOnline.com "French military intelligence and European security agencies appear keen to acquire WebLab, a platform designed by EADS to extract and disseminate all types of information"



WebLab : http://weblab-project.org/weblab-core/weblab/


The WebLab is a platform aiming at providing intelligence (business, strategic, military...) solutions and any other applications that need to process multimedia data (text, image, audio and video).
It is composed of several layers:
WebLab Core: An open source technical baseline (and free to use in any commercial application) acting as a runtime environment for unstructured information processing services. It has been developed by the Information Processing Competence Center of EADS Defence and Security and its partners in the following projects:
WebContent: The Semantic Web Platform, French ANR Project 2005,
VITALAS: Video & image Indexing and Retrieval in the Large Scale, European Project 2006,
e-Wok Hub: Environmental Web Ontology Knowledge Hub, French ANR Project 2006.
WebLab Services: A set of multimedia processing services and GUI either open source or commercial developed by EADS or its partners (among other, the one of the submentionned projects) to build specific applications.



WebLab Applications: A set of business specific applications either open source or commercial developed by EADS or its partners (among other, the one of the submentionned projects) to build specific applications.



One of this existing application is the EADS WISE application (WebLab Intelligence Solution by EADS) dedicated to the military domain.
