Introduction to Aurora®

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

Ever wonder how Sovereign is able to offer such a varied array of investigative services for multiple sectors?

There are a lot of answers to that question, but among the foremost is our signature artificial intelligence software platform, Aurora. Aurora forms the backbone of much of Sovereign’s information-gathering capabilities, from making sense of foot traffic patterns to decoding dark web chatter. But what exactly is Aurora?


“We are building the software tools that we wish we had in the field."

Simply put, Aurora is an SaaS platform designed by investigators, for investigators. Sovereign, as an intelligence services product company, was founded on a dual backbone of Silicon Valley-bred technical expertise and a professional heritage in clandestine services. The result of that marriage is Aurora: a software service programmed by some of the smartest minds to emerge from the computer science and engineering industry – but informed by the pain points of real, seasoned investigative professionals.

Maximize your investigative instinct.

A common misconception among old school commercial intelligence purists is that advancements in machine learning are a threat to their jobs, and that products like Aurora will eventually replace human, boots-on-the-ground investigative professionals.

The way we see it at Sovereign, this couldn’t be further from the truth – in fact, we believe in precisely the opposite. Rather than replacing human intelligence and investigative professionals, our aim in building Aurora is to amplify their existing capabilities. We want to equip smart, savvy professionals with the tools to streamline the investigative process, cut down on busy work and wasted time, and develop insights into hard-to-penetrate stores of valuable data that might otherwise be unavailable.

Because the minds behind Aurora include actual intelligence analysts and investigators with tried-and-true professional experience, we know firsthand just how taxing these jobs can be. Our aim is to make a human investigator’s life easier – so that they can do the best possible job they’re capable of. Think of Aurora as a highly intelligent, artificial Girl Friday to your intrepid detective – here to assist anytime, anywhere, no matter how tough the case is.

Want a quick sampler of the myriad ways that Aurora’s capabilities can be leveraged to protect, streamline, and maximize opportunity for businesses like yours? We invite you to explore our growing library of case studies.

Enter Aurora GeoStudio, a flagship Aurora service, specializes in tracking one of the most valuable data sources out there: location intelligence. Location intelligence allows us to observe, analyze, and make sense of the patterns of life across an infinite number of locales and demographics. GeoStudio collects location intelligence via electronic smart device applications, and converts findings into interactive data visuals.

Currently, Aurora GeoStudio observes approximately 600 million devices and over 16 billion events, worldwide – that’s a near unheard-of volume of data, and we put it right at an investigator’s fingertips with an easy-to-use, game-like interface.

Take a look at this sample report, courtesy of GeoStudio. Here, we’re able to track visitors to a specific location across a designated time frame, at specific hours of the day, and from specific origins such as country, region, and electronic network – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Explore the world through new eyes.

At the end of the day, Aurora enables its users to do their jobs to the best of their ability – and then some. By providing intelligence analysts and investigative professionals with the best possible tools – built by the most innovative engineers, but informed by experienced investigators – Sovereign hopes to pave the way for a truly revolutionary evolution in the intelligence industry, and Aurora is our guiding light.
