Swedish Defence Research Agency Tests TIBCO Spotfire® Analytics Platform for Defence Materiel Planning and Interoperability Requirements Analysis
The Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) supports the Swedish Armed Forces in their ongoing transition towards a model-based capability development process. Among other things, FOI looks at new ways to visualize and navigate among large volumes of data in search of interesting insights that are hard to see in traditional spreadsheets. The prototypes developed as part of the initiative demonstrate how information visualization and interaction techniques can support model-based capability development involving large hierarchical data sets. Two cases were chosen as a context for the prototypes: analysis of the Armed Forces materiel plan and analysis of relations between NATO requirements and Swedish military units.
