​BAE Systems to provide DGCS Capability Drop 2 for US Army

27th July 2020 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has won a maximum $823 million contract from the US Army under the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Capability Drop 2 programme.

The company is providing its  Intelligence Knowledge Environment (IKE) software framework that combines modular data and AI analytic capabilities.

Dave Logan, vice president and general manager of C4ISR Systems at BAE Systems, said IKE  ‘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’.

DGCS is intended to provide enhanced intelligence to see and better understand threats and other relevant aspects of the operational environment. The Capability Drop development model allows the Army to rapidly insert new technology upgrades to DCGS by breaking requirements into small bundles, enabling agile and rapid acquisition.
