In January 2021, SAIL LABS Technology GmbH was acquired by the sensor specialist HENSOLDT and became HENSOLDT Analytics.

Abstract— We describe the HENSOLDT Analytics Media Mining System which is capable of processing vast amounts of data typically gathered from open sources in unstructured form. The data are processed by a set of components and the output is produced in MPEG7 format. The origin and kind of input may be as diverse as a set of satellite receivers monitoring TV stations or textual input from web-pages or RSS-feeds. A sequence of processing steps analyzing the audio, video and textual content of the input is carried out. The resulting output is made available for search and retrieval, analysis and visualization on a next generation Media Mining Server. Access to the system is web-based; the system can serve as a search platform across open, closed or secured networks. Data may also be extracted and exported and thus be made available in airgap networks. The Media Mining
System can be used as a tool for situational awareness, information sharing and risk assessment.
