PROVIDENCE – Cogility Software Corp., the wholly owned subsidiary of Lake Forest, Ill.-based Acquired Sales Corp., has landed a $500,000 contract continuation for the development of the Joint IED Analysis Tool for the U.S. Army.
According to a news release, Cogility is expecting a multiyear continuation of the JIST project contract, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Defense.
Improvised explosive devices, known as IEDs, are the most frequent cause of U.S. deaths in Afghanistan, according to the release.
The JIST system is an integrated software-development environment for model-driven engineering. It overlays disparate intelligence and operational IED related data sources and, using Cogility’s patent-pending Template Event Processing Language and Complex Event Processing, the JIST system automatically performs thousands of simultaneous queries and pushes actionable intelligence to analysts and soldiers. •
