DECISIVE ANALYTICS, along with its subcontractor, Rock Corporation, will support the SMDC Concept Evaluation Branch (CEB) of the Future Warfare Center’s (FWC) Concept Development and Integration Division (CDID) in evaluating emerging and future space, high altitude, and missile defense concepts and capabilities. This Task Order will be executed in both Colorado Springs, CO and Huntsville, AL.
We are pleased to announce we have been awarded a $41.5M competitive task order contract under Design, Development, Demonstration and Integration (D3I) Domain 2 from the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT). The contract, entitled Software Prototyping and Experimentation Support (SPES-1), has a total period of performance of 4.5 years including options and will be primarily performed in Huntsville, AL.
DECISIVE ANALYTICS will support the USASMDC/ARSTRAT, Future Warfare Center (FWC), TRADOC Capabilities Manager, Global Ballistic Missile Defense, Prototyping and Experimentation (TCM GBMD P&E) Branch in providing quick solutions to many of the Army’s capabilities gaps in the form of software applications. Under this effort, DAC will be maintaining, sustaining, and supporting all P&E Branch’s currently established software products for their respective customers. In addition, DAC will investigate, develop, and transition mission command prototype technology solutions, conduct mission command demonstrations as a risk mitigation strategy, and provide support for the integration of new capabilities into new and existing programs.
“We are pleased to be continuing our work with SMDC under this new D3I D2 task order,” said Jess Granone, Vice President and D3I Program Manager at DECISIVE ANALYTICS. “We look forward to solving the customer’s capability gaps by bringing innovative products into new mission areas to enable the warfighter to move closer to their mission command goals.”

DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation's Analytic Technologies division got much of its start thanks to the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. In the beginning, the Air Force SBIR program funded many critical and successful technologies, allowing our engineers to develop robust algorithms and build expertise in the area of Data Fusion. The program has been vital to DECISIVE ANALYTICS. It has enabled us to bring in tremendous talent and gain the knowledge and expertise to create new products. The experience from the program gave our team the power to identify transition partners and apply our technologies to real-world problems.
