Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $690 million task order contract by the General Services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center to develop a suite of data systems for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the company announced Wednesday.
“Northrop Grumman will continue its longtime partnership with DIA, the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community in the delivery of this critical national security capability,” said Ginger Wierzbanowski, vice president, intelligence solutions, Northrop Grumman.
Under the task order, Northrop Grumman will deliver the Transforming All-Source Analysis with Location-Based Object Services (TALOS) program. The TALOS program focuses on the build of big data systems for DIA, such as the Machine-Assisted Rapid-Repository System (MARS).
Northrop Grumman will serve as the enterprise module integrator for MARS. MARS will create a military intelligence environment that will be accessed for up-to-date information by the Intelligence Community (IC) and warfighters.
The company will use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies to develop a big data processing system that will manage large volumes of data to inform warfighting decisions. Northrop Grumman’s efforts will support actionable intelligence with speed and enhance decision superiority.
“Building on our experience and deep mission understanding, we look forward to developing enhanced technologies to help analysts deliver actionable intelligence with speed,” Wierzbanowski added.
