BAE Systems awarded INSCOM task order
BAE Systems has received a $437 million task order to provide open source support for US Army and Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) approved partners, the company announced on 15 October.
Awarded under the US General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) multiple-award IDIQ contract, the task order will see BAE Systems deliver open source capabilities derived from publicly available data.
To support this activity, the company will provide INSCOM with training, policy and governance recommendations, assessments and implementation of emerging capabilities. BAE Systems will also establish and manage a secure cloud hosting environment for these activities.
Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business, said: ‘We’re proud to continue to partner with the US Army and support their critical national security missions with this new capability.
‘Our open source solution is designed to deliver timely, objective and cogent information to mission-critical programmes in the face of evolving threats and the continuous increase in the volume and sources of open source data.’
