BOISE, Idaho, 16 June 2010.Digital imagery experts at the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) at Fort Belvoir, Va., needed systems and services to help intelligence analysts detect threats from digital imaging sensor data. They found their solution from IntelliScience Corp. in Boise, Idaho.
IntelliScience, a developer of intelligent multi-modal image analysis systems and software, is doing the work for DTRA under terms of a potential $16.6 million contract announced today.
"The U.S. military has invested significantly in image sensor devices and the capture of digital imagery to produce vast amounts of image files," says Matthew Holm, DTRA director of innovation. "With IntelliScience technology we will provide operators and analysts with enhanced visualization and intelligent analysis to react more quickly and confidently."
DTRA deals with threats from weapons of mass destruction. Its mission is to safeguard the U.S. and its allies from chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high yield explosives.
