LINTHICUM, Md., June 11 (UPI) -- U.S company Raytheon says it is working to address the growing volume of data collected by defense authorities with an interoperable analytics solution.

Raytheon says it is sharing its rapid-information overlay technology with academic and other industry professionals as part of an effort to collaboratively establish a platform for developers and analytics suppliers to develop new systems to derive actionable intelligence from the large amount of data.

The move to collaborate on the rapid-information overlay technology for extreme-scale analytics is an initiative to address the evolving mission of the U.S. military and other government agencies as more emphasis is placed on cyber operations.

"The keys to Raytheon's efforts are its broad, inclusive teaming arrangements and its open software development," J.C. Smart, Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems chief technology officer, said in a statement.
