Bringing together adversary reporting on violent activity and a range of third-party sources, ExTrac’s Conflict Tracker organises, triangulates and visualises longitudinal data on conflict activity and risk. Synergising live feeds of text and imagery pulled directly from hard-to-reach online networks, it offers granular insight into adversary attack techniques, material capabilities, and targeting priorities.
Automate your conflict and risk mapping, analyse shifts in operational focus, and get out ahead of new campaigns while they are still emerging.
Through ongoing access to both open and hard-to-reach communication networks on platforms such as Telegram, Rocket.Chat, Hoop, and Element, as well as historical data from as early as 2004, ExTrac tracks tactical and strategic shifts in messaging around conflict, hate speech and extremism.
Track influence campaigns and audience priorities as they evolve in real time, identify threats to your brand or operations, and design effective strategic responses.
Building on years of access to closed conflict actor networks, ExTrac hosts a searchable, exhaustive and living archive containing more than 10 terabytes of conflict actor groups’ global communications (official and unofficial) and instructional content dating back to 2004.
Mine for information on emerging threats and vulnerabilities, cross-check third party reporting and make your own in-house assessments on conflict actor activity past and present.
