Zoic Labs Awarded DIA’s Machine-Assisted Analytic Rapid-Repository System Contract
California-headquartered Zoic Labs on Thursday announced that it has partnered with the Defense Intelligence Agency‘s Future Capabilities and Innovation Office to satisfy Machine-Assisted Analytic Rapid-Repository System requirements for visualization capabilities, big data, data management and analytics. The new contract will draw upon Zoic Labs’ depth of experience in interactive data visualization with a compelling visual language to elevate the MARS mission to provide military planners and warfighters alike with a strategic advantage, Intelligence Community News reported Friday.
Tim McBride, Zoic Labs founder and president, said his team has the right experience, perspective and ability to help the nation’s intelligence analysts effectively and efficiently leverage new systems to make timely and accurate assessments and decisions. He added that Zoic looks forward to “contributing to a foundational transformation of key intelligence systems.”
Under the contract, Zoic Labs will provide a scalable, user-driven experience using novel techniques to draw the viewer’s attention to regions of interest in large datasets. This will enable the dynamic, seamless presentation of various graphical and visual content, represented through diverse platforms and applications at the speed, scale, and security provided by the MARS ecosystem, with little to no training, the company said.
It was explained that in establishing MARS, the DIA intended to transform the existing system housing foundational military intelligence into a dynamic, cloud-based system that pairs humans with machines to automate routine processes and enable the artificial intelligence and machine learning needed to make sense of big data and create analytic bandwidth.
By making the award to Zoic Labs, the DIA has indicated its continued commitment to bringing small business and non-traditional partners into flagship development efforts, according to Intelligence Community News.
