Northrop Grumman will help modernise the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate's intelligence with AI solutions under the Intelligence Systems Infrastructure, Tools and Enhancements programme.

The US Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI) has awarded Northrop Grumman a $406 million contract for the Intelligence Systems Infrastructure, Tools and Enhancements (InSITE) programme.

The deal, announced on 17 January, will advance information collection and analysis across the AFRL/RI customer set.

InSITE will modernise the AFRL/RI’s intelligence information collection, sharing and analysis capabilities by implementing AI solutions. This will enable the force to make faster, better-informed decisions to deny, disrupt or defeat threats across all domains and with allies globally, Northrop Grumman said.

‘Building on our 40 years of support to the AFRL/RI, Northrop Grumman will digitally transform InSITE to meet its space domain awareness and counter-space intelligence mission priorities.’

The company will provide cloud-enabled applications to foster data exchanges across US DoD and Intelligence Community customer centres and satellite locations.
