BAE Systems joins SAIC in program to develop DARPA Insight next-generation intelligence-analysis system
ARLINGTON, Va., 8 June 2011. Information processing experts at the BAE Systems Electronic Solutions segment in Burlington, Mass., are joining Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) in McLean, Va., on a project to design a next-generation intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) exploitation and resource management system that fills gaps in today's military intelligence analysis capability. BAE Systems won a $12.9 million contract Tuesday from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., for the Insight intelligence analysis program.
Today's U.S. intelligence-analysis systems link intelligence sources to tactical operations centers manually by chat-based operator interaction, which can limit the ability to deal with fast-moving and rapidly changing threats.
The DARPA Insight program seeks to rectify this situation by integrating human and machine reasoning into intelligence equipment to blend operator knowledge and reasoning into intelligence-processing computers when dealing quickly with complex data from many different sensors.
Experts from BAE Systems Electronic Solutions and SAIC will build model-based behavioral correlation, modeling, prediction, and threat network analysis tools that combine intelligence information across many different sources automatically to improve the efficiencies of multi-intelligence sensors. The companies also will develop a unified data-management and processing environment that integrates new intelligence sensors and software algorithms.
For the DARPA Insight program, BAE Systems Electronic Solutions and SAIC also will develop the Insight Test Bed to help evaluate intelligence analysis approaches.
