TLDR:

  • Leidos, a science and technology company, has been awarded a $143 million contract from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to design and implement a Tasking, Collection, Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (TCPED) system for the agency’s Open Source Intelligence Integration Center (OSIC).
  • The new contract builds upon the agency’s existing work with the National Media Exploitation Center’s (NMEC) Data Discovery Platform (D3P), which enriches unstructured data from the Department of Defense and intelligence community.

Leidos has won a $143m contract with the US Defense Intelligence Agency to “design and implement a Tasking, Collection, Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination system” for the agency’s Open Source Intelligence Integration Center (OSIC).

The system will help OSIC address national security challenges as they arise by utilising AI and machine learning. Leidos will bring in developers and data scientists from the National Media Exploitation Center (NMEC) to support OSIC.

The new contract follows on from the success of NMEC’s Data Discovery Platform (D3P), which helps sift through mountains of data from the intelligence community to improve detection and sharing of vital information across different agencies. The contract award was made under an indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity vehicle called DOMEX Technology Platform that, if all options are exercised, could be worth $143m.
