US: BAE Systems has been awarded a multi-year USD 60 million contract to provide Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI) systems, tools and support for mission priorities for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). This award is a task order under the NGA’s Total Application Services for Enterprise Requirements (TASER) programme, a five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract.
BAE Systems’ ABI solution employs advanced software analysis tools integrated with commercial, off-the-shelf computing infrastructure to automate the ingestion, storage and processing of large volumes of intelligence data across multiple sources. This solution enables intelligence analysts to better identify adversarial activity patterns, and helps them achieve a greater understanding of the relationships between individuals, their activities and their transactions. BAE Systems’ ABI streamlines processes to enhance analyst productivity, rapidly turning data into actionable intelligence.
“Our ABI solution has created a dramatic step forward into the creation of predictive intelligence analysis that enables us to proactively defend our nation against terrorism, insurgency, narcotics trafficking, and weapons proliferation,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence and Security sector.
The TASER-ABI contract focuses on the delivery of an ABI production system, including: engineering, system integration, and application sustainment. BAE Systems has teamed with a number of partners to deliver its solution, including ESRI, Harris Corporation, HumanGEO, Intelligent Software Solutions, Lightspeed Technologies, Pixia Corporation, Radiant Blue Technologies, and Signal Innovations Group.
