Operation Nighthawk:
A BlueLight Case Study

OVERVIEW

Operation Nighthawk was a 2014 multinational SOF training exercise, bringing together 1,600 personnel from military and police forces from more than 10 countries. The goal was to simulate a fast-paced deployment of SOF units to an active hotspot, and train both field operatives and support staff to plan and conduct special operations.

Operation Nighthawk: The Need

Coordinating the activities of Special Operations Forces requires analysts to analyze a vast flow of multi-source data in real-time, build up and share intelligence, and help define the next targets.

Operation Nighthawk: The Solution

Working alongside IBM® Global Business Services®, the exercise command team used IBM i2® solutions to create a central intelligence repository, complete with powerful analytical capabilities.

Operation Nighthawk: The Benefit

Increases efficiency, enabling limited resources to be focused on key targets. Helps analysts process extreme volumes of data to rapidly reveal hidden connections.
