BAE Team to Help DARPA Build Intell Sensor Processing Tech; David Logan Comments

BigDataAn industry team led by BAE Systems has won a $79 million contract to help the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency design technology for converting large volumes of sensor data into threat intelligence.

DARPA seeks to build a device that can help defense organizations process information from multiple sensors and predict threat behaviors by using algorithmic models, BAE said Wednesday.

The team for the Insight program’s second phase includes Lockheed Martin, Science Applications International Corp., Charles River Analytics, Intific, Aptima, HF Designworks and PatchPlus Consulting.

“BAE Systems has invested in developing a portfolio of sensor data processing and exploitation systems to provide analysts with usable intelligence and intuitive, easy-to-use sensor controls,” said David Logan, vice president and general manager of technology solutions at BAE.

The DARPA system will be designed to incorporate features for analyzing data from human reports, intelligence repositories and multiple sensing platforms.
