BAE Systems Honored for Outstanding Achievement in Aerospace & Defense

Tech America Win
BAE Systems’ Advanced Analytic Framework has been awarded an American Technology Award (ATA) for outstanding achievement in the aerospace and defense sectors by the TechAmerica Foundation. ATAs exemplify the “Best of” the United States tech sector.

BAE Systems Advanced Analytic Framework solutions, like Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) support big data analysis by bringing over 50 streams of information from airborne sensors, intelligence collectors, open sources, and other user-defined datasets into a single, integrated geospatial view.

“In contrast to the linear, stove-piped intelligence cycle of the Cold War, ABI has catalysed a shift to a dynamic, non-linear analysis process where analysts can easily integrate multiple data sources into a common intelligence picture,” said Jordan Becker, vice president of BAE Systems’ GEOINT-ISR business.

The centralized framework ABI provides is also enhancing intelligence collaboration. Analysts in multiple agencies can work concurrently, sharing information and using their unique expertise to solve the same intelligence problem in real-time. The shared environment created by ABI is enhancing the analysts’ ability to rapidly explore patterns and trends across time and space to unravel unknowns and understand complex relationships. In some cases, analysts have reported that tasks that would take as many as three weeks to accomplish, were reduced to less than three hours when using BAE Systems ABI software.

“Our Advanced analytic solutions are giving analysts an ‘easy button’ that significantly enhances their ability to discover mission-critical intelligence,” said Patrick Biltgen, BAE Systems’ ABI engineer.  “ABI has spawned a Facebook-like culture of sharing and collaboration that is taking intelligence analysis to a new level of sophistication.”

The TechAmerica Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan affiliate of TechAmerica, which is the leading association for the U.S. technology industry. Each year, the foundation awards ATAs for outstanding achievement in 15 different technical categories, to include advanced manufacturing, big data applications; cloud computing; cybersecurity; IT services; software and telecommunications. Judges evaluate each entry from a technical perspective to recognize and award solutions based on their scope, impact and innovation.

BAE Systems provides intelligence and security services to manage big data, inform big decisions, and support big missions. BAE Systems delivers a broad range of solutions and services including systems development, IT, cyber operations, and intelligence analysis to enable the U.S. military and government to recognize, manage, and defeat threats. The company takes pride in supporting critical national security missions that protect the nation and those who serve.
