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.
