Frost & Sullivan has identified four different trends disrupting security operations as game changers to augment mission success and multiply forces capabilities on terrain.
- The combination of new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, and new recipients such as wearable devices and unmanned systems that make it very promising to security forces. .
- Deploying semi-autonomous and remotely-controlled systems into security operations has been slower to implement at the anticipated scale due to technological and legal barriers. However, the rising emergence of new technologies such as AR, cloud based storage and communications, and AI-enabled traffic control are bringing more certainty and realism into the picture, with therefore more likely manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) operations at the horizon.
- Machine learning based algorithms have been initially deployed in evidence collection and crime prevention. Beyond life savings unrivaled benefits, crime prediction powered by AI is becoming a useful tool for patrols and efficient resources management, better planning and proportionate means
- With an ever-growing trend towards outsourcing security activities, from protecting CNI, corporations or ensuring public safety, Security as a Service (SECaaS) is naturally finding its way as a perfect match to address customers’ requirements and budget sensitivity, with an idea to get an adequate and modular security solution to fit operational needs, as per the “on demand” trend.
