25yrs of Integrated Systems Research
Joseph de Saram discusses Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), the co-ordinated and integrated acquisition, processing and provision of timely, accurate, relevant, coherent and assured information and intelligence to support the commander’s conduct of activities.
Ain’t No Use in Complaining When You Got a Job to Do
Today is the 25th Anniversary of the incorporation of Integrated Systems Research Ltd (“ISR”) on 11 May 1992, my first ever limited liability company and the special purpose vehicle for the really clever stuff!
Many people think of Rhodium PLC incorporated on 12 June 1995 as the launch of my career into Applied Cryptographics, Signals Intelligence and Financial Systems, but it was not.
From those early days and having to learn about fiduciary services whilst performing them for Americans, I gained a solid understanding of point of supply, point of control and point of consumption.

Need to Know
Unless parties in 2017 understand how things began, they will never understand the evolution of the same and what I was doing in the recent years, until my heart issues…
But I have to get my head down now, so don’t ask me about anything as:-
Happy Anniversary to all my Aerospace & Defense colleagues, especially those who were there at the start…
Thank you for the hardcore training that ensured that I performed assignments perfectly, and the threats of torture that ensured that I always kept my mouth shut 🙂
