Data Analytics Pathfinder contract won by MacAulay-Brown, Inc.

LINTHICUM HEIGHTS, Maryland. U.S. Air Force officials selected Enlighten IT Consulting (EITC), a MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB) company, to assist with development and implementation of analytics on the Big Data Platform (BDP) under the Data Analytics Pathfinder contract.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center is responsible for total life cycle management of Air Force weapon systems. The Air Force is conducting a Pathfinder to refine requirements and use-cases to determine future enterprise capabilities. BDP and data analytics experts from EITC will help align environments including Cyber Situational Awareness Analytical Capabilities (CSAAC), Joint Regional Security Stack (JRSS), and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

The effort and exploration by EITC personnel will determine the feasibility of a shared, common-user solution that can be accessed by multiple cyberspace weapon systems and communities of interest as they perform separate operational mission objectives.

Part of EITC’s use-case exploration will include operations for the U.S. Department of Defense Information Networks (DoDIN) and Defensive Cyberspace Operations. The one-year contract will be performed at EITC Secure and Agile Software Development facilities in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.
