Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) has entered into a contract to develop improved actionable intelligence and decision-making capabilities for the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).
NGC’s Transforming All-Source Analysis with Location-Based Object Services (TALOS) program will develop new big data systems for DIA, including the Machine-Assisted Rapid-Repository System (MARS). MARS will transform current databases that contain foundational military intelligence into multi-dimensional, flexible and rigorous data environments, providing up-to-date information to the Intelligence Community and warfighters.
Northrop Grumman will serve as the enterprise module integrator for MARS, using innovative artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies to develop a big data processing system that can take in and process large volumes of data to inform warfighting decisions.
Ginger Wierzbanowski, vice president of intelligence solutions at NGC, commented: “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. Building on our experience and deep mission understanding, we look forward to developing enhanced technologies to help analysts deliver actionable intelligence with speed.”
