CIAD is a perfect application of the amalgam of innovations that Hilbert Technology has developed to process multiple data sources and formats at very high speeds in order to provide more comprehensive and enhanced analytical outcomes.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Hilbert Technology Inc., a privately held innovative software technology firm, headquartered in New York City, announced today that it has received a $970,500 follow-on contract to implement a robust and scalable Context Independent Anomaly Detection (CIAD) system for the U.S. Army’s CERDEC Software Engineering Directorate.
The Hilbert CIAD system dynamically detects intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data anomalies in real-time as an integrated sub-system of the U.S. Army’s Joint Unified Multi-Capable Protection System (JUMPS). It provides an automated mechanism for analyzing vast amounts of incoming ISR data for the purpose of isolating anomalies that identify threats. The CIAD system enables a system analyst, without any prior knowledge of the data set, to immediately see anomalies, determine threat level, and accelerate the dissemination of vital information to the field. The system has been designed to accommodate cultural, weather, economic, social, wire service, and other open source information to enhance situational awareness by applying additional relevant information to the analyst.
The JUMPS program addresses the multi-intelligence command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) requirements for supporting joint, harbor defense and maritime domain awareness.
Hilbert has engaged Argon ST, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, as the subcontractor. Argon ST has been awarded over $8 million to support the Joint Unified Multi-Capable Protection System over the last seven years in order to develop and maintain a sensor test bed, laboratory, and data center for the Army. According to Fred Ilsemann, program manager at Argon ST, ”The integration of CIAD with JUMPS and other multi-sensor surveillance systems offers the possibility of greater operational autonomy, reduced operator workload, and improved threat recognition in multiple domains to satisfy the challenging requirements of a wide variety of missions.”
Bruce J. Crowley, chairman and chief executive officer of Hilbert Technology, stated, “CIAD is a perfect application of the amalgam of innovations that Hilbert Technology has developed to process multiple data sources and formats at very high speeds in order to provide more comprehensive and enhanced analytical outcomes. Hilbert’s processing speeds enable the CIAD system to run more complex algorithms against the incoming data. The more complex algorithms represent more elaborate computational procedures and higher order questions for identifying anomalous entity behavior. The more complex the question, the better the analytical outcome.” Crowley added, “CIAD provides the Army with enhanced situational awareness, process improvement and new cost savings.” Hilbert Technology’s contract with the US Army is currently set to run for one year.
