Post Mission Data Analysis:

The Department of Defense seeks prototyping of a solution that includes ability to: merge spatial-temporal feature-rich data sets from multiple sources, recognize and correlate relationships from those disparate data sets which reference the same entity, and detect new anomalous data outside of the normal range of existing feeds. Solutions must allow for large sections of data to be missing in some instances, data volumes on the order of several GB per day, and both synchronous and asynchronous data transfers. The software must be modular and portable to a variety of target systems in order to allow for distributed processing, and include a queryable database. Core capability must be edge-deployable and existing edge system specifications will be provided.  Visualization, summaries, and other dashboard views are a desired part of the end product. Award may be structured in two phases in which there is a proof of concept phase and an on-premise deployment phase.

Responses should address the ability to rapidly deploy the proposed solution into a classified environment. Proposed solutions should have commercial viability.  The government may accept teaming arrangements among submissions offering complementary capabilities to achieve desired effect.

Prospective companies must be US-owned and have an approved facility clearance to be considered for award. (required).   Clearances will be verified in the National Industrial Security System (NISS)

PLEASE NOTE: This Area of Interest solicitation will be awarded in accordance with the Commercial Solutions Opening (CSO) process detailed within HQ0845-19-S-C001 (DIU CSO). This document can be found within the DIU Library at https://www.diu.mil/library.
