IvySys Technologies has received a potential $4.6 million contract from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory on behalf of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to help create mathematical and computational strategies that can model adversarial activity.
The DARPA Information Innovation Office’s four-year MAA program will use the new approaches in a push to acquire, deploy, fabricate and proliferate indications and warnings regarding weapons of mass terror, IvySys said Tuesday.
The company aims to supply an automated synthetic data generation platform where DARPA can augment observation information related to terrorist threat activities.
“IvySys looks forward to building on our partnership with DARPA to confront this intelligence analysis challenge and support the government’s mission to protect our country,” said James DeBardelaben, president and CEO of IvySys Technologies.
The IvySys approach would embed threat indicators with background data including emails, inventory movement and banking transactions to assess adversaries’ methods and strategies.
