USSTRATCOM issues ACE-M sources sought
On November 21, the U.S. Air Force posted a sources sought notice for Analytic Collaboration Environment – Multi-INT (ACE-M) Sustainment/Training. Responses are due by 2:00 p.m. Central on December 7.
This is an initial step in the planning process for the advancement, integration, and testing of the Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) software “Analytic Collaboration Environment –Multi-INT (ACE-M)” in support of United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). All information will become the property of the Government. Do not include proprietary information.
The goal is to support the USSTRATCOM Global Data Integration (GDI) mission to expose, characterize, and missionize disparate DoD and Intelligence Community (IC) data sources across multiple domains to decrease situational ambiguity, improve Battlespace Awareness, and enable Decision Advantage.
The 55th Contracting Squadron at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, seeks information about potential sources to support the USSTRATCOM Global Data Integration (GDI) mission to expose, characterize, and missionize disparate DoD and Intelligence Community (IC) data sources across multiple domains to decrease situational ambiguity, improve Battlespace Awareness, and enable Decision Advantage. We support all Services and multiple federal agencies. ACE-M is a cloud-based, platform-agnostic tool to access data (all-source), analytics, and tools to view and interact with data in mission-tailored Common Operating Pictures (COPs)/Common Intelligence Pictures (CIPs). ACE-M outputs are visualization agnostic and can be viewed in geospatial viewer(s) on multiple domains.
ACE-M provides over 5500 users library services via a single user sign-on for PKI-based access to over 1400 data feeds from multiple sources and domains (Commercial, NIPRNet, SIPRNet, JWICS, and NSAnet), including dynamic access to historic data (static, dynamic, user generated) from multiple disparate data sources for the purposes of reconstructing global events. ACEM developers work closely with end users to develop and deploy capabilities that provide the ability to quickly manipulate, visualize, and analyze multi-domain/multi-INT data to create a decision advantage. ACE-M continuously updates by adopting emerging technologies to meet real world threats. An average of fifteen capabilities are added per month based upon detailed analyses of requirements. A new COP/ CIP normally needs to take less than one week to deliver after requirements are finalized.
