DoD Launches Enhanced Secure Communications with Intelligent Decisions

Updated: January 14, 2011

ASHBURN, Va., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Decisions, Inc. (ID), a premier global technology solutions provider specializing in Information Technology capabilities, has been selected to provide the Department of Defense (DoD) with the Air Mobility Test Suite leveraging IDOptimize, Intelligent Decisions' COTS based suite of testing applications.

The Air Mobility Test Suite is designed to perform a series of validation and verification activities related to communication protocols between aircraft and ground support components. To facilitate this project, Intelligent Decisions combined various DISA approved COTS and built additional workflow engine capabilities on top of the DISA approved IDOptimize toolset. Extending upon the accepted Analog capability is a scanning component that evaluates the laptop against the DoD standard for network security. These scan results are compared against DoD standards and displayed to the aircrew for evaluation. Ongoing efforts include embedded logic that allows the Command to determine acceptable and unacceptable levels of risk and vulnerability. While this capability is ready for use across all platforms, the ID team continues to work through policy and procedure business processes allowing Commanders and Commands to determine best suitability and acceptable risk.

IDOptimize is a comprehensive line of COTS tools featured in the DISA Air Mobility Test Suite, a meta-test engine that uses specialized test subsystems to create problem solving test scenarios. The test suite is a managed device designed to be user friendly and to collect a specific set of information with as few variables as possible to ease analysis and long term trend identification. This mobile test module comes standard with equipment for testing 225 different devices, with follow on capabilities for in-air validation. The systems run applications that guide the user though the testing process while providing easily understandable results that can be translated into real time decisions regarding security.

"The flexible and automated Air Mobility Testing Suite was developed to assist with the maintenance and communications capability of the Armed Forces, which can also be adapted for Civilian and Commercial aircraft. Utilizing iterative prototyping combined with our AGILE methodology, we were able to deploy this capability in less than 30 days," said Harry I. Martin, President and CEO of Intelligent Decisions. "This tool was built to operate in many different environments and be mobile and secure enough to take in the field for hands-on testing. We are proud to have the technology to support our warfighter's needs even in high end demands and will continue to develop and strengthen our Innovation Solutions for DoD and all airborne customers, both military and commercial."

The Air Mobility Test Suite is in use in the Air Force, Navy and on the Executive Leadership Aircraft. It has also been approved for testing on military, civilian and commercial platforms. Current plans are to deploy it for expanded use for additional testing, and to implement additional modules to enhance the ability to measure overall platform performance including solutions for IPV6, VOIP, and an enterprise reporting engine.
