MERRIMACK, N.H., Jan. 15 (UPI) -- BAE Systems says it is to continue to lead a team effort simplify the work of intelligence analysts in processing mass, complex data from multiple sources.
Under Phase 2 of the Defense Advanced Research Agency's Insight program will add capabilities to integrate information from sources -- space, air, sea, and ground sensors, human reports, and intelligence repositories – to a system developed in the first phase of the project.
"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 Systems. "We are able to capitalize on the core technologies we've developed for other intelligence programs, including multi-sensor fusion, reasoning algorithms, and automatic resource tasking, while advancing our expertise in this area."
The Insight program aims at developing a system that will automatically fuse data from numerous sensors and, through the use of algorithms, discover and predict behaviors of possible threats. The system would analyze the multi-source data and convert it to usable intelligence.
The system would also automatically manage sensor tasking.
During the first phase of the Insight program, BAE Systems developed an automatic/semi-automatic system for exploitation and resource management, sensor models for testing the system under a variety of operational conditions in support of troops in irregular warfare situations.
BAE Systems' team in Phase 2 of the project includes Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories, SAIC, Charles River Analytics Inc., Intific Inc., Aptima Inc., HF Designworks Inc., and PatchPlus Consulting Inc.
