The FBI awarded a contract to Convera to provide a search and categorization platform for the bureau's investigative data warehouse.
The initial cost of the deployment of Convera's RetrievalWare software is about $1.5 million, according to company officials. RetrievalWare will be used as a search platform for a counterterrorism and intelligence data repository that is part of the FBI's Secure Collaborative Operational Prototype Environment (SCOPE).
RetrievalWare will allow FBI agents to search and share intelligence information, company officials said. The platform includes security options for cross-repository and cross-platform security, classification personalized to the FBI's users' requirements, multimedia search options and extensive language search capabilities.
