GEM Cutter provides advanced modeling capabilities to the analysis workforce—reducing cognitive workloads by making sense of data faster.
 
With the increasing volume of disparate information and data across channels, modeling is essential for the Defense Intelligence Community. It provides users the ability to make sense of the world around them by identifying and characterising patterns in information derived from imagery and geospatial data.

“We are creating a data agnostic environment and an operational programme that optimises the speed and relevance of decision making,” said Meg Redlin, product line director for Mission Systems at BAE Systems. “Our investments in GEM Cutter and deep enterprise experience enable us to deliver on our customer’s needs. This new solution offers unparalleled capabilities, automating the user’s ability to move from time-consuming data curation to sense making.”
 
GEM Cutter integrates with existing enterprise solutions while vastly improving the quality of analysis, streamlining workflows, reducing timelines and increasing the impact of GEOINT production. It introduces new capabilities at speed and scale in one interactive location known as the Analyst Workbench. The Analyst Workbench will include advanced commercial technologies for data integration, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning experimentation and production.
