DOD awards pair of research deals

Two Defense Department agencies have awarded separate contracts to the U.S. subsidiary of Offshore Systems International Ltd. to provide prototype display solutions for improving battle space communications.

Under a contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, OSI will continue developing a prototype system called C2insight that adapts problem solving in warfare situations.

The system uses data from DARPA's command and control system and a program to enhance communications to improve situational awareness, collaborative decision-making and training for Command Post of the Future.

The Command Post of the Future system, which is a set of tools designed to improve communications between a division and its brigades, has been deployed and tested in Iraq.

Under a contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory, the company will conduct research and develop systems that enhance battlespace understanding. This initiative would create decision support components that improve collaboration and interoperability on many levels.

The total value of the contracts is more than $1 million.
