The deal — awarded under the GSA Alliant 2 Government-wide Acquisition Contract — involves the delivery of actionable intelligence and enhanced decision superiority through the Transforming All-Source Analysis with Location-Based Object Services (TALOS) program.

The TALOS program aims to build new big data systems for DIA to include the Machine-Assisted Rapid-Repository System (MARS), transforming current databases housing foundational military intelligence into multi-dimensional, flexible and rigorous data environments.

MARS’ military intelligence environment will be accessed for up-to-date information by the intelligence community and defence personnel.

As part of the TALOS task order, Northrop Grumman will serve as the enterprise module integrator for MARS, using innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to develop a data processing system capable of ingesting and managing large volumes of data to inform warfighting decisions.

“Northrop Grumman will continue its long-time partnership with DIA, the Department of Defence and the intelligence community in the delivery of this critical national security capability,” Ginger Wierzbanowski, vice president of intelligence solutions at Northrop Grumman, said.
