Booz Allen Awarded $885M US Government Machine Learning Support Order

Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) has received a potential five-year, $885 million contract to help the U.S. Government Program Office build and integrate an open systems architecture for enterprise machine learning analytics and persistent services.

The company said Monday it aims to deliver an eMAPS platform for the USG Program Office, Defense Department associates and the intelligence community to implement artificial intelligence and neural networks.

“The high volume, variety and velocity of intelligence acquired across the U.S. government cannot be harnessed by people alone,” said Judi Dotson, an executive vice president at Booz Allen.

Dotson added the company’s team of data scientists and engineers will offer integrated eMAPS support to help warfighters leverage AI and analytics in national security missions.

Booz Allen will also work to integrate machine learning tools into military command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems as part of the task order from the General Services Administration‘s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center.
