BAE Systems to provide open source intelligence support to the US Army

The US Army has awarded BAE Systems a new $437 million task order to provide open source support for the Army and Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) approved partners.

The task order was awarded to BAE Systems under the US General Services Administration’s (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) multiple-award IDIQ contract and the acquisition was managed by GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) on behalf of the Army.

Under this task order, the Company will deliver open source capabilities derived from publicly available data to the Army. To support this activity, the company will provide INSCOM with training, policy and governance recommendations, assessments and implementation of emerging capabilities. It 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 programs in the face of evolving threats and the continuous increase in the volume and sources of open source data.”
