The U.S. Army has awarded BAE Systems an initial order under its Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) Capability Drop 2 Program. The award is worth up to $823 million, and provides enhanced intelligence to see and better understand threats and other relevant aspects of the operational environment.

The Intelligence Knowledge Environment (IKE) is a framework of modular data and artificial intelligence analytic capabilities built to autonomously transform information into knowledge.

The company’s solution for Capability Drop 2 is the Intelligence Knowledge Environment (IKE). It’s a software framework of modular data and artificial intelligence analytic capabilities built to autonomously transform information into knowledge.

“With a focus on a user-centric analyst experience, IKE rapidly transforms data into intelligence in an easy to learn and scalable manner,” said Dave Logan, vice president and general manager of C4ISR Systems at BAE Systems. “It 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.”

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.
