In this blog entry, I’d like to talk about the often-overlooked FIRMS as an OSINT tool for monitoring active warzones. Created by NASA, the Fire Information Resource Management System (FIRMS) is definitely not getting the popularity it deserves – this is our attempt to spread some awareness.  Using satellites to detect and display heat flashes […]

This post has been updated with a timelapse and high-resolution imagery of Etna Dramatic but harmless (for now), Etna’s eruption makes an excellent case study for environmental security – a lesser-known application for Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT). Mount Etna, Europe’s tallest active volcano, erupted on Tuesday, February 16th. Towering 3,350 meters over Catania on Sicily’s eastern […]

Who doesn’t like a quick and sweet geolocation challenge?  Part of my work on T-Intelligence involves monitoring “adversarial activities,” which includes keeping tabs on military hardware deployments of hostile foreign governments such as the Russian Federation. I am especially interested in what is commonly known as anti-access area denial (A2/AD) equipment.   THE VIDEO On […]

On Monday, a video went viral that shows a personal trainer doing her aerobics routine against the backdrop of a military coup in Myanmar. Not even the wave of armoured personnel carriers and police vehicles could interrupt her catchy workout beat (the new 2021 anthem?). The surreal scene made waves on social media where users […]

Most of my OSINT work covers armed conflicts and geopolitical events. But as an analyst, it’s essential to keep an open mind and learn about new tools and platforms.
