Business Group Highlights

Intelligence

The Intelligence group provides high-end systems engineering and integration products and services, data analytics and software development to national and military intelligence customers. Serving federal agencies and the Intelligence Community for more than 50 years, the Intelligence group helps our clients meet their mission needs by providing trusted advisors, leading-edge technologies, and innovative solutions.

Responsibilities

Expert Systems Engineers assist in leading engineering teams in taking a multi-discipline approach to requirements engineering, solutions engineering, scheduling, reliability, resiliency, services development, integration, test and evaluation, maintainability and analysis to provide technical leadership for many of the customers’ highest priorities, including the Intelligence Community (IC) Advanced Campaign Cell (ACC), an Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI)-chartered organization whose mission is to develop and apply innovative analytic and collection methods, technology, and tradecraft techniques to include model driven methodologies that integrate multiple disciplines in support of the community’s efforts against the hardest problems. The IC/ACC supports expectations as prescribed by the ODNI Augmenting Intelligence Using Machines (AIM) Initiative. This initiative demonstrates the art-of-possible via Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning approaches applied to selected contents, applies innovation to advanced Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) and Object Based Productions (OBP) practices in context of human and machine-augmented capability.

Duties include:

  • Assists the Government in directing efforts, projects and campaigns aligned to the IC ACC Framework leveraging the IC/ACC’s unique accesses and authorities to evolve collection, linked knowledge, and analysis tradecraft versus a focus on solving the hard intelligence problems using traditional methods.
  • Assists with the planning, analysis/traceability of user requirements, architectures traceability, procedures, and problems to automate or improve existing systems and review cloud service capabilities, workflow, and scheduling limitations for a model driven framework.
  • Advises the Government on proposed changes to the solutions designs based on analysis of requirements and new technology.
  • Assists the Government in the capture and translation of mission requirements/needs into systems/capability requirements and solutions using DOD and IC standards.
  • Assist in leading Analysis of Alternatives (AoAs), Course of Actions (CoAs), Trade Studies, and Engineering Assessments.
