This has been an outstanding year for ISS. Despite the recent economic downturn, we have actually grown substantially. The company will continue to hire in support of this award and others, expecting to bring on over 100 new personnel this year alone.
Colorado Springs, CO (Vocus) September 11, 2009
Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS) has been awarded a $300 million, five-year contract by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Information Directorate.
The Colorado-based company announced today their selection as the winner of the new Web Enabled Temporal Analysis System Toolkit (WebTAS-TK) contract. This contract will initially encompass more than 100 projects for 50 different user communities. These projects range from efforts supporting advanced research and development of machine learning and complex event processing to the development and deployment of state of the art command and control applications, as well as intelligence analysis tools. In addition to providing a vehicle for many software development efforts, this award also enables ISS to maintain its ongoing support to combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as on-site support at many locations around the United States and internationally.
A major emphasis of the WebTAS-TK contract is the development and technical evolution of the WebTAS software baseline. WebTAS is a modular software toolkit that supports the integration of many disparate data sets, visualization, project organization and management, pattern analysis and activity prediction, as well as various means of presenting analytical results. WebTAS provides a thick client and web browser-based access capabilities as well as access to data via a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) standards-based set of interfaces. The company will further its adoption of Web 2.0 standards and a migration of the WebTAS web presentation layer to the Adobe® Flex® environment. ISS will also assist the government in accrediting the WebTAS toolkit for deployment on government classified networks.
The company combines on-staff subject matter expertise across a wide range of domains with the extensibility of the WebTAS platform to provide a wide range of customers with tailored solutions.
Jay Jesse, President and co-founder of ISS, said: "The WebTAS-TK award is the largest in the company's history and brings us to over half a billion dollars in active contracts with the US Air Force."
Another major emphasis of the new contract will be the continued development and fielding of the ISS-developed Combined Information Data Network Exchange or CIDNE program. CIDNE presently provides military and political leaders with insight into the success of ongoing campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. ISS will refine the CIDNE platform as well as integrate support for more operational missions.
In addition to the development of custom software applications, ISS will also continue on-site support around the world to enable customers to conduct a wide and varied set of missions, from Maritime Domain Awareness and Intelligence Fusion to supporting the analysis of ethno-sectarian violence trends and national stabilization in Iraq and Afghanistan. The company presently has more than 75 deployed personnel supporting customers around the globe.
Jesse concluded: "This has been an outstanding year for ISS. Despite the recent economic downturn, we have actually grown substantially. The company will continue to hire in support of this award and others, expecting to bring on over 100 new personnel this year alone."
