Loquendo Adds Speech Technologies to Government Surveillance Solution
By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor
Raytheon’s Redwolf offering provides government intelligence agencies with a one-stop solution that collects, stores and analyzes digital audio telecommunications, Internet traffic and VoIP communications.
To assist agencies with faster processing of data from all of these communications sources, the Loquendo LVSL offering filters data and identifies voices, languages and the gender of the speaker so that intelligence agencies no longer need to take a number of recordings to uncover data – further improving the investigative process.
“The Redwolf solution maximizes an agency’s resources during critical surveillance by quickly processing communications, before rapidly identifying and responding to threats,” says Luciano Piovano, Loquendo VP for Government Intelligence Solutions. “We are very pleased that Loquendo’s state of the art technology is now an integral component of this market-leading solution.”
Loquendo’s speech technologies offer a range solutions for server, embedded and desktop solutions. They currently offer 26 languages with 62 voices, and are constantly updating their family with new voices.
The company’s Intelligence Solutions are used by law enforcement agencies worldwide in a bid to identify communications relevant for an investigation in a timelier manner, and while keeping costs down.
Earlier this year, Loquendo made headlines with the announcement that it was working with Expert System to provide solutions for the security market.
This announcement included the addition of Loquendo’s Voice Analyzer solution in with Expert Systems' Cogito Intelligence Platform 09, a semantic software suite that provides analysts with the ability to understand the meaning of words in their context to be used in Homeland Security's intelligence process.
