The Air Force Research Laboratory, of Rome, N.Y., is paying Intelligent Software Solutions, of Colorado Springs, Colo., $35 million to provide technical enhancements to correct shortcomings in its Web-Enabled Timeline Analysis System, as well as to build new capabilities and features.

Under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, Intelligent Software Solutions will receive task orders to perform engineering, operations and maintenance, and to offer technical support for new and existing customer sites worldwide.

Air Force officials declined to be specific about the shortcomings citing 'possible operational security concerns.'

'The enhancements will extend the Web-Enabled Timeline Analysis System functions and provide effective and efficient and capabilities to meet the needs of the users,' according to a Defense Department release.

The WebTAS architecture connects to multiple data sources and uses data mining tools to provide trend and pattern analysis.

The work will be complete by August 2009.
