Our 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 technology we were able to develop as a result of the SBIR program works over multiple data sources and fuses together the important details to reveal the high-level idea for the warfighter. 

The Air Force SBIR 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. Our success in the SBIR program led to implementing our algorithms to broader applications in the larger world in which the military operates. It has been a springboard for our company and has expanded our client base to the Navy, Army, DHS, FBI, other military organizations, as well as commercial markets in the financial and business services sectors.
