Intelligence professionals that 'task network', determine and eliminate 'valued' targets by integrating OSINT and HACKING with HUMINT and TECHINT into a 'Cloudular Network'.
Not linear but cloudular, which means one asset will lead to others quickly and efficiently as we pull the various threads of information allowing clients to move in many directions at the same time or follow one specific aspect if required.
Five level ultrascans are used for the intelligence-gathering phase of all security-related work and to determine the relationships and real-world links
People, Groups of people (social networks)
Web sites, Internet infrastructure such as Domains, DNS names, Netblocks, IP addresses, Email
Phone, Phrases, Affiliations, Documents, and files
But also hidden or confidential information can be revealed;
Family ties, Health status;
Financial networks, Foreign sales, Financial resources;
Media sources, Disgruntled employees, Imminent threats, Homeland plots, Tradecraft, Recruiting tactics.
A general first wide search for the entities as given by the client, the outcome differs a lot depending on how common the names of entities are.
If the entity is named "john smith" the outcome will be a lot of information containing "john smith" - "john" and "smith"
When the entity is firstname.lastname@example.org the outcome will be information containing or connected to email@example.com
With a combination of entities, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org, XYZ company, London, Cairo, Washington, phone, and green energy, the outcome will be information containing or connected to all entities and links between the entities.
The outcome of the first level scan will value the newly found entities in relation to the given one, depending on the value new entities can be scanned for deeper connections to determine relationships with the originally given entity.
For example, documents with co-signatures, university records, photographs with location and time stamps, logins and passwords of (email) accounts, additional (email) addresses, company websites, Twitter accounts, can link to new entities that have connections with the given entities. Even though some entities are removed from the internet or data set, traces can still lead to new entities (evidence).

Look for the smaller deals justified by the cover of other large amount transactions
In April 2018 the airplane was flown to another continent and for three months extensively tested to see if it could meet its objective. Tests included and passed, to weaponize the plane and escape detection.
The plane returned to the U.S. in July 2018 where it is temporarily rented out as a medium range private jet charter, which incidentally also creates a steady and legal money flow in the U.S.
