SPADAC Gets Two Contracts with the Office of Naval Research

Tuesday, May 15, 2007
SPADAC has won two contracts with the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop solutions in support of the global war on terror. SPADAC, headquartered in McLean, Va., offers unique solutions which allow decision-makers to analyze past events in order to better understand and forecast future events. SPADAC's novel pattern analysis approach applies technology in tandem with the experience and knowledge of subject matter experts to provide significant advantages over strictly technology-based solutions.

In the first contract, SPADAC will research and provide ONR with a solution to predict and analyze tactics, techniques and procedures used by enemy individuals and groups. This solution will help analysts determine the causes of certain behaviors and to plan accordingly to exploit those behaviors. The solution will also provide a means of measuring changes in behavior. Over its full term, the contract is worth approximately $980,000. In the second contract, SPADAC will develop simulation and modeling tools to identify the features of individuals, events and organizations who pose a threat to specific missions and to determine where sensor resources should be allocated for maximum efficiency. Over its full term, the contract is worth an estimated $4.2 million.
