McDonald Bradley announced today that it received an $8.2 million prime contract from the Defense Intelligence Agency to develop an architecture to help warfighters and analysts share intelligence information worldwide.
McDonald Bradley will use a service-oriented architecture approach and advanced technologies, including data search and tagging, to create a secure, comprehensive framework to help the military better share intelligence. The contract award comes under the Defense Department’s multiyear Intelligence Information Systems Data Layer project, according to a company statement.
“We are proud to have been chosen for this strategic initiative that will raise the bar in how information will be efficiently shared from what is currently a multitude of disparate systems and databases across [DOD] intelligence information systems,” said Kenneth Bartee, the company’s president and chief executive officer.
This is the third publicly announced contract McDonald Bradley has received from DIA. The agency awarded the company an $8 million contract in 2003 and a $20 million deal in 2004 to work on the Horizontal Fusion Portfolio Collateral Space Initiative. That initiative created space on DOD networks so warfighters and analysts could more quickly and easily share and access intelligence.
