The growing threat to national and international security owing to illegitimate cross-border activities has made security a top priority for numerous nations worldwide. Usually, a country’s security departments depend on communication surveillance and intelligence technologies to safeguard the people and organizations within the country. In the recent years, an exponential rise in the demand for technologies that provide essential information regarding illegal activities to law enforcement and defense departments has been observed. The information gathered using intelligence technologies has become imperative for the success of military operations. As a result, the demand as well as implementation of advanced security technologies mainly in the defense and aerospace sectors is expected to rise in the coming years. Communication Intelligence (COMINT) is one of the intelligence technologies greatly used in activities intended for national as well as international security.

What is Communication Intelligence (COMINT)?

COMINT is the information collected from the communications between individuals, such as text messages, phone conversations, and numerous types of online communications. It seeks information related to text, voice, and signal transmissions and tries to identify a number of intelligence contemplations about them.

COMINT technology is used to understand the details about the communications such as:

  • Who the communicating parties are
  • The organizational function of the transmitter
  • Where those parties are located
  • Time & period of conversation
  • The type of encryption used and whether it can be decrypted
  • Frequencies and other technical information of note in the transmission

Friendly army conversations are also examined in the same way as a part of communications security (COMSEC). Even though intelligence departments in the U.S. have specified that COMINT is only interested in foreign individuals, the Snowden revelations demonstrate very similar techniques used on the country’s own residents. For instance, it was revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) is collecting the information related to communications and associated metadata of private citizens since 2001.

Why is the Demand for COMINT Technology Rising?

Government organizations and defense sectors have been harnessing the benefits of COMINT technology since many years. In the last few years, COMINT technology has also been widely implemented in a wide array of areas such as radio frequency (RF), maritime domain awareness, jamming, spectrum mapping, eavesdropping, and cyber-security. Numerous organizations are adopting COMINT systems for enhanced security and protection.
