Exovera, a wholly-owned subsidiary of defense contractor, SOSi, has been providing curated media monitoring and analysis services worldwide since 2006. Today we offer a subscription-based technology platform that tracks media currents in local language, providing unique insight into prevailing and hidden narratives and data on how different audiences react to them.

Exovera employs advanced technology (artificial intelligence, deep learning, neural networks, opinion mining and natural language processing) to harness the value of big data across hundreds of thousands of traditional and social media sources worldwide.

We enable communications professionals and influencers to

  • determine the relative strength of narratives over time

  • refine messaging in near-real time

  • measure an influence campaign’s effectiveness (MOE)

Our government and military customers work in all regions of the world where Exovera provides local situational awareness and data across a wide range of complex security, political, economic, and humanitarian issues.

Our commercial customers include organizations that seek to design, manage and track campaigns at scale.
