Booz Allen Hamilton Receives a $885M Task Order from GSA FEDSIM to Provide Machine Learning Support to the U.S. Government Program Office for Five Years


Today's intelligence environment necessitates that the U.S. government
maintain unprecedented amounts of Intelligence Surveillance
Reconnaissance (ISR) data and information to thwart potential attacks
and threats around the globe. Faced with the challenge of a relentless,
24/7 operations cycle, the U.S. Government (USG) Program Office has been
tasked with developing and integrating an open systems architecture that
introduces Enterprise Machine Learning Analytics and Persistent Services
(eMAPS). The General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems
Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) recently awarded Booz
Allen Hamilton
(NYSE:BAH) an $885M contract to provide an eMAPS
solution that will enable the USG Program Office, Defense Department
partners and the intelligence community to rapidly employ artificial
intelligence, neural and deep neural networks – over a five-year period.

"The high volume, variety and velocity of intelligence acquired across
the U.S. government cannot be harnessed by people alone," said Booz
Allen's Executive Vice President Judi
. "Our team of expert data scientists and engineers will apply
cutting-edge solutions to deliver integrated eMAPS support to unlock the
value of artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics, which will give
warfighters positioned around the world the tools they need to drive
U.S. national security forward."

The new contract expands on Booz Allen's legacy supporting the USG
Program Office community. It will focus on integrating machine learning
capabilities with a full spectrum of Command, Control, Communications,
Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems
that support military operations.
