Communicators fight even in times of peace

MUT’s liai­son offi­cers cre­ate tools to pre­vent attacks in the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions net­work. The sys­tems serve the mil­i­tary and sup­port the Bor­der Guard in pre­vent­ing crime. They help police offi­cers in their inves­tiga­tive work relat­ed to dis­as­ters.

Accord­ing to col. Zbig­niew Piotrows­ki, direc­tor of the Insti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Sys­tems at the Fac­ul­ty of Elec­tron­ics of the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy, thanks to the analy­sis of texts post­ed on the Inter­net, you can more effec­tive­ly fight the smug­gling of cig­a­rettes, alco­hol, drugs or fuels, as well as mate­ri­als that could be used to pre­pare an attack. 

AISEARCHER is an arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence equipped with lin­guis­tic knowl­edge. It scans the pub­lic Inter­net for peo­ple sus­pect­ed of plan­ning a crime. In order to adapt to phras­es, idioms, neol­o­gisms or jar­gon of a giv­en indus­try, sci­en­tists co-cre­ate the sys­tem in a con­sor­tium with lin­guists from the Adam Mick­iewicz Uni­ver­si­ty and one of the Pol­ish tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­nies.

The ID VICTIM code name is used to describe the sys­tem for record­ing vic­tims of — for exam­ple — rail­way or air dis­as­ters. It can also be used in case of ter­ror­ist attacks. Elec­tron­ic forms could be used imme­di­at­ly at the scene of the inci­dent. They will make it eas­i­er for trained police experts — DVI (Dis­as­ter Vic­tim Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion) teams — to describe and cat­a­log found remains and tech­ni­cal items. This will be in line with the pro­ce­dure rec­om­mend­ed by Inter­pol.

Wire­less­ly infect­ing com­put­ers with virus­es, steal­ing data from the serv­er or dis­rupt­ing the radio sig­nal at a cru­cial moment — when a plane lands, a remote sur­gi­cal oper­a­tion is car­ried out, or a deci­sive order is issued — is much more dif­fi­cult for crim­i­nals thanks to the com­mu­ni­ca­tions from the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy.

The AISEARCHER and ID VICTIM projects are financed by the Nation­al Cen­ter for Research and Devel­op­ment under the Secu­ri­ty and Defense pro­gram.
