-- Applied Technical Systems (ATS), Inc. has been awarded a Phase II contract under the U.S. Navy Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to develop an information extraction and scoring system for technical documents.
ATS' approach uses its expertise with maintenance and logistics support for U.S. Navy systems and its experience in developing data-rich software solutions to research and design a web-based tool capable of fusing textual and machine-readable data sources to provide a quantitative assessment of the effectiveness of naval maintenance and sustainment processes, throughout the system lifecycle.
"ATS has a long and proud history in working to improve maintenance and sustainment activities for the U.S. Navy," said Ken Smith, ATS Chief Operating Officer. "We also have exceptionally skilled computer scientists who know how to manage structured and unstructured data integration problems at large scale. I'm excited about this opportunity because it allows us to combine all of ATS' diverse talents and focus them on solving a real problem. Our goal with this effort is to identify quantifiable metrics out of those textual descriptions and then measure maintenance and sustainment activities against them. This would help program managers better identify where to focus their improvement efforts and what might put them at risk of not meeting their availability, reliability, or sustainability goals for the systems they're managing."
Since 1980, ATS has been driving operational excellence through applications for defense, commercial, energy and intelligence communities. ATS develops elegant solutions by translating complex processes, concepts, and ideas into simple, easy-to-use, and understandable applications.
