SAN DIEGO. BAE Systems has signed an initial order with the U.S. Army under the service's Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Capability Drop 2 Program -- a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract worth up to $823 million -- under which BAE Systems will provide systems enabling enhanced intelligence to see and better understand threats and other relevant aspects of the operational environment.
According to company information, the BAE Systems entry for Capability Drop 2 is the Intelligence Knowledge Environment (IKE), a software framework of modular data and artificial intelligence (AI) analytic capabilities that autonomously transforms information into knowledge.
Dave Logan, vice president and general manager of C4ISR Systems at BAE Systems, said of the recent Army contract win: “With a focus on a user-centric analyst experience, IKE rapidly transforms data into intelligence in an easy-to-learn and scalable manner. It helps analysts translate information into actionable intelligence using a collection of tools -- some interactive, others that operate autonomously -- to enhance the effectiveness of the analyst.”
