IvySys Technologies Breaks the Code on Real-Time Intelligence Analysis™

Revolutionary Intelligence Processing and Exploitation Capabilities Improves Decision Advantage Against National Security and Cyber Threats

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  IvySys Technologies today announced Real-Time Intelligence Analysis™, a comprehensive suite of advanced engineering services and technology, to extend the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community's (IC) abilities to rapidly respond to and mitigate national security and cyber threats. IvySys improves decision advantage by arming non-technical individuals with an unprecedented capability to "connect the dots" and affect mission outcomes in real-time. Historically, the intelligence processing and exploitation capability has been limited to highly trained analysts and applicable only after the threat occurred.

"IvySys' expertise and cutting-edge engineering capabilities put us at the forefront of intelligence analysis. With advanced signal processing algorithms detecting potential threats as they surface, it gives us the ability to proactively protect," said L. Reggie Brothers, Ph.D., former Program Manager at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Advanced Technology and Strategic Technology Offices and IvySys Advisory Board member.

IvySys Technologies' Real-Time Intelligence Analysis methodology provides the DoD and IC with the following key benefits:

  • End-to-end services includes signals collection, analysis and dissemination, new intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance R&D program formulation, technology evaluation, military utility assessments and program management;
  • Real-time intelligence processing and exploitation (P&E) capabilities enable rapid response to and mitigation of national and cyber security threats;
  • Automated multi-sensor fusion dashboard for non-technical operators displays user-friendly, actionable information across multiple assets as threats occur;
  • Rapid prototyping leverages commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware to produce unique, innovative and cost-effective solutions; and
  • Deep domain expertise in signals intelligence (SIGINT), measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT) techniques and its application to cyber security.

IvySys has leveraged its Real-Time Intelligence Analysis technology to create the Next-Generation Exploitation Optimization System™ (NEOS). The core components of IvySys' NEOS are the Intelligence Processing Unit™ (IPU) and the Coherent Processing Engine™ (CPE). The IPU compresses vast amounts of data into channelized spectral information using advanced signal processing algorithms, whereas the CPE aggregates information from a number of IPUs, draws correlations (i.e. "connects the dots") and presents intelligence in an actionable format.

Extending Advanced Intelligence Analysis Techniques to the Cyber World

Cyber security tops the agendas of U.S. defense and intelligence agencies with greater importance than ever before. "Malicious cyber activity is occurring on an unprecedented scale with extraordinary sophistication," said National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair, during his annual threat assessment delivered to the U.S. Congress.

By applying its expertise in optimized signal processing algorithms, IvySys can adaptively detect anomalies in network traffic for real-time Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS). The simplicity of the automated dashboard enables any user to identify a threat type, localize the threat and then be able to neutralize it, turning intelligence analysis from reactive to proactive.

Rapid Development for Rapid Threat Adaptation

The ability to quickly develop and implement is mission essential in making defense and intelligence decisions. IvySys' Real-Time Intelligence Analysis methodology bypasses the costly development cycle and delivers innovative capabilities to customers quickly. The key to IvySys' rapid prototyping is the company's unique ability to leverage commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware in unique and novel ways, thereby minimizing non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs for customers. This strategy allows for concept-to-implementation in less than six months, while many competitors take years before the technology is complete.

"To the war fighter, staying one step ahead of a terrorist or an enemy can mean the difference between life and death. In an industry where threats are constantly developing and evolving, the ability to quickly adapt is mission critical," said LCDR (Ret.) Steve Vogel, a former Director of Information Operations with Naval Special Warfare.

Mission Possible

IvySys focuses on solving critical tactical situational awareness challenges for the DoD and IC, whether the mission is disrupting a terrorist plot, identifying an illicit account, or halting the proliferation of sensitive technology. The company is currently supporting ISR efforts with some of the U.S. Government's most advanced research and development agencies, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and DARPA.

"IvySys is dedicated to our customer's mission. To that end, we are continually investing in our highly knowledgeable staff and R&D to bring forward innovative techniques and technologies," said IvySys founder and president, Dr. James A. DeBardelaben. "We see incredible opportunities to extend the capabilities of the DoD and U.S. Intelligence Community and strengthen our country's national security."
