The US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has awarded a cost-plus-fixed-fee term contract worth up to $52.8 million to ITT Corp.’s Advanced Engineering Services Division in Alexandria, VA for research and development in the areas of information architecture and related technology. The initial order is for $9.9 million, but, if all options are exercised, the cummulative value would reach $52.8 million. Under this contract, ITT will provide design and development of information processing systems, decision support systems, database structure and mining, applications of parallel and distributed computing and software… According to the NRL solicitation [pdf] (N00173-09-R-SK06), information architecture research includes: “…the communications and networking required to provide fast, reliable, authenticated and often secure transfer of data among various parts of an overall system, incorporating assets ranging from massively parallel computing system to naval assets deployed in hostile military environments. Human interface research ranging from voice and tactile to the development of interactive virtual environments is an integral part of the work. Information processing research includes traditional signal analysis and extends to various automated reasoning techniques. Information assurance and security, real time processing, simulation and modeling, multilevel secure database structures, progressive motion imagery, compression and decompression, and robotics are also integral parts […]
