Software developer Intelligent Software Solutions has won a five-year, $593 million contract to develop software for the U.S. Air Force to use in intelligence analysis and data fusion.
Under the Air Space Precision Engagement Research and Engineering program, the company said it will form a development framework and also provide the branch new technologies for intelligence analysis and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).
ISS developed the Web Enabled Temporal Analysis System Toolkit for analysis and ISR applications.
“The WebTAS-TK suite of tools has been used by dozens of organizations and tens of thousands of users over the past thirteen years, ” said ISS CEO Jay Jesse. “It’s been very fulfilling to be able to provide this rich but general set of capabilities to so many warfighters, license free over the years.”
Jesse added the U.S. and its allies use the platform to understand and anticipate behaviors of adversaries.
Work will include research, development, integration, testing, demonstration, operations and maintenance of technologies and concepts under the APSERE program.
The Air Force, Defense Department, intelligence community and other federal agencies use the software toolkit to visualize data, analyze infrastructure and exploit temporal, spatial, entity, and association information.
The software also generates reports, reports incidents and supports workflow and search.
Within the Air Force and other agencies, 70 user communities use WebTAS for more than 100 projects in machine learning, event processing, command and control and intelligence analysis tools.
