BAE Systems has won a $79 million contract to design an intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance device able to integrate human and machine reasoning into intelligence equipment in order to blend operator knowledge into intelligence-processing computers.
The contract awarded to BAE Systems electronic solutions segment marks the second phase of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency‘s insight program for improved intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, BAE Systems announced Monday.
Under the program, BAE Systems will perform work at its Burlington, Mass. facility to enhance the developed baseline system, focused on counter-insurgency operations, developed during the program’s first phase.
BAE Systems will also add additional capabilities to the Insight program such as data analysis from imagers and battlefield sensors and threat identification from behavioral patterns and prediction algorithms.
BAE said that the unified intelligent data collection technology is meant to be an ” open, standards-based, multi-source, plug-and-play architecture” for quicker integration with existing and future ISR technologies.
