Patria CRAWLR is a cyber intelligence (CYBINT) software product providing targeted and discrete information gathering from a wide range of sources, including websites, social media and the dark web. Patria CRAWLR enables the user to analyse results and discover sources of information by utilising the advanced automatic data gathering and information classification features as well as the machine learning capabilities of the system.

The gathered information is displayed to the user in an easy-to-understand unified graph representation with a wide variety of search tools and filtering available for deeper analysis. The system aids the user in finding valuable intelligence information by using automated classification, statistics and information history.

CRAWLR offers scalability, modularity and configurability for various use cases of governmental actors. It can be utilised in situations such as gathering evidence for criminal investigations, analysing the security situation in selected regions, detecting information operations in social networks and creating high-level governmental situational awareness of emerging threats based on open sources.

(CRAWLR presents various visions for future utilisation, including crowdsourcing, situational awareness, Machine Learning and future analytics. CRAWLR will be able to detect and neutralise information operations, classify news, create spatiotemporal visualisations, detect anomalies, recognise named entities as well as conduct semantic search, sentiment analysis and stylometrics.)

CRAWLR is an effective tool against hybrid warfare, terrorism, drug and illegal arms trafficking and is a highly effective cyber and military intelligence capability.
