The ATLAS Intelligence Platform is a modular, high-performance data management and integration suite created to support today’s most urgent intelligence needs. As a fast, open, and secure platform, ATLAS enables teams to discover, analyze, visualize and deploy solutions in record time, without compromising performance.


ATLAS crawls, enriches, indexes and exposes your organization’s unstructured text for end user discovery. With ATLAS, you can extract entities like geographical coordinates, personalities and keywords, all while enhancing your analytic experience. Whether you have text files sitting on a share or need an improved data management plan, ATLAS can help.


ATLAS manages a range of video capabilities, including full motion, airborne, static surveillance and special reconnaissance. We take your stale and historic video and make it part of today’s evolving intelligence cycle. Geospatially and contextually discover previously disparate pieces of video within data holdings, while exposing content as part of your unique workflow.


Do you have historic survey data? Are you traveling to a location you’ve been to before? ATLAS crawls and indexes signals data, exposing it for retrieval while enabling scalable high-performance analytics. ATLAS provides users with a better understanding of historic data.


ATLAS crawls tags, manages and makes your own data discoverable on your enterprise. Whether single-band, multispectral, airborne, thematic, commercial or private images. Sift and crawl through your data holdings, identify different image providers, and expose key metadata information to end users.

Law Enforcement

NoteShark is an automated, secure, cloud-based currency solution that optimizes the logging, tracking and recovery of currency utilized by government agencies and public safety organizations.


For many organizations, tracking currency means tediously photocopying bills by hand. The photocopies are filed away, only to be manually matched against any recovered currency in the future. It’s laborious. It’s time-consuming. It’s error-prone. It’s the way of the past.

Using NoteShark you can rapidly extract serial numbers  and capture bill images  – all with the push of a button. Bill artifacts are automatically uploaded to NoteShark’s secure database for automated comparison against prior tracked bills in all participating agencies. The system sends immediate “match” alerts via SMS and email to all relevant parties. It’s simple. It’s secure. It’s accurate. It’s the future of currency tracking.


  • Automated comparison against tracked bills in the database
  • Immediate “match” alert notifications via SMS and email
  • Evidentiary records preserved for prosecution and forfeiture
  • Enables agency-wide statistics and accounting reports
  • User-friendly account management and interface


  • Supports internal agency metrics
  • Compartments case data, providing only ORI and contract info (cross agency)
  • Cloud subscription includes supervisor and detective access, system support and updates

Space Situational Awareness

Space operators need technology to drive more speed for sense, relay, and process.

The volume, variety, and velocity of data related to space operations is outpacing analysts’ manual ability to find, aggregate, and correlate that data into coherent Space Situation Awareness (SA).

We focused on solving these issues by delivering accelerated Decision Advantage for Battlespace Management.  The solution helps support and defend our space assets, increases performance of the Joint Air Tasking Cycle, and enhances the speed of F2T2EA & TCPED processes.  It also automates manual multi-INT processing, exploitation, and dissemination processes of ISR data feeds and correlates non-traditional and publicly available info with your existing authoritative data sources

In only 6 weeks of development we built a prototype that ingests and integrates six different space data sources involving over 4,000 space objects. The solution automates propagation calculations and determines line-of-sight for each object, all within a few seconds. The experiment also eliminated 75% of the data from sources that were not relevant to the task.

No two missions are alike — which is why NS2 invests and collaborates directly with customers and partners to take technology from commercially viable to mission ready.  We focused on some of the toughest challenges for the national security community Multi-INT Fusion, Big Data Analytics, and Tracking and Sensors.

Our goal is to ensure our technology investments meet the agility, scale, performance and security that each mission requires.
