OUSD(I) to hold solutions meeting

On January 29, the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence announced an upcoming solutions meeting. Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST on February 27.

The Department of Defense, Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (OUSD(AT&L)) Rapid Reaction Technology Office (RRTO) will conduct a Solutions Meeting on behalf of OUSD(I) in McLean, VA in May 2018. The Meeting provides selected innovative companies with an opportunity to make short technical presentations to government representatives about their technologies and products. There is a potential for companies to be selected for pilot projects or experimentation if their technology appears to match the needs.

OUSD(I) is looking for innovative technologies and capabilities in the following areas:

Predictive Analytics
– Big Data algorithms
– Predict changes in status quo patterns (e.g. political unrest, disease outbreak, etc.)
– Incorporate non-traditional data sources
– Recognize historical behaviors, patterns, and context
– Perform multi-modal modeling and analysis to explore what-if scenarios
– Risk modeling for critical technologies protection

Extend the Enterprise to the Edge
– Analytic capability in isolated, edge, and low bandwidth/computing environments
– Intelligent synchronization with bandwidth/access limited communications
– Modular and interoperable analytic platforms and software
– Distributed cloud computing, storage, applications for remote environments
– Compression or improved bandwidth efficient dissemination
