Naval Research artificial intel deal goes to OSI

The U.S. Office of Naval Research has awarded Offshore Systems International Ltd. a contract to provide software for a system capable of making decisions and solving problems ordinarily done by military analysts.

Under the $1.1 million contract, OSI of Vancouver, Canada, will provide software for a system patterned after the way humans solve analytic and perceptual problems.

The system, known as Situation and Threat Updates for Real Net-centric teams, will address a number of high-level interpretation or information fusion problems that currently require human analysis to correctly interpret situations and make predictions.

OSI delivers systems and software for enhanced situational awareness in command, control and intelligence applications for the commercial, defense and homeland security markets.
