BAE Systems announced on 11 April 2024 that it has added Topaz Intelligence to its Modeling & Simulation Solutions (M&SS) portfolio to provide ‘intelligence as a service’, driving agile decision making for its customers.

M&SS provides military customers with wargaming capabilities and operational readiness planning within the company’s Intelligence & Security sector. Topaz Intelligence was acquired as part of BAE’s acquisition of Ball Aerospace, which closed earlier this year.

Since 2013 Topaz Intelligence has developed and delivered fully commercial custom intelligence solutions for customers in the commodities trading, manufacturing, insurance, and research and analytics industries. The business removes technical complexity and scaling barriers for its customers by delivering high-value, decision-ready intelligence and advisory services.

“This pairing strengthens and expands our offerings with the Topaz Intelligence team’s ability to transform volumes of disparate data points into trends, insights, outcomes and decisions,” Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ M&SS segment, was quoted as saying in a company press release. “The challenges facing both our government and commercial customers and the data available to them today are vast. Our team is now better able to help connect them to meaningful data and turn it into actionable intelligence using best-in-class analytics and AI methodologies.”

Large-scale enterprises and militaries collect diverse data from internal and external systems, including customer data. Topaz Intelligence leverages this data to improve outcomes for its customers and invests in innovation for best-in-class products and features, BAE noted.

The business assists customers in capitalising data to enhance their supply chain, adapt to disruptions, and monitor environmental impact, ultimately driving capital growth.

“Topaz Intelligence collaborates with its customers to understand their problems, uses data from the customer, complements it with additional industry data, and integrates and analyses it to produce solutions,” BAE stated. “Having the best possible intelligence at their fingertips allows customers to move quickly and efficiently to determine the best course of action for the organisation.”
