DECISIVE ANALYTICS Featured in 2016 Army SBIR Commercialization Brochure

July 1, 2016

DECISIVE ANALYTICS (DAC) is among one of the companies featured in this year’s Army Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Commercialization Brochure. The SBIR Program, along with the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program, was established by Congress to provide opportunities and encourage participation in government sponsored research and development. There are currently eleven Federal agencies participating in the SBIR Program including the Department of Defense.

DAC is featured as a SBIR Phase III success story for Extracting Entities, Relationships and Actionable Intelligence from Unstructured Text Data Sources. DAC has developed a suite of capabilities which are able to extract entities, relationships, topics and semantic concepts from unstructured text and multi-source datasets to automatically disambiguate entities and build relationship-rich entity network graphs through a Natural Language Processing (NLP) pipeline. This addresses the Army’s need of being able to quickly extract, index and search meaning from unstructured data.

Both the SBIR and STTR Programs utilize a three-phase structure in commercializing technologies. Phase III involves a participating small business to obtain funding from the private sector or a non-SBIR/STTR government source in order to fully develop their product or service. Over the past four years, DAC has been awarded $4.2M in Phase III funding from the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command G7 program. This has allowed Army analysts to view automatically generated network graphs of disambiguated entities in order to quickly accomplish their mission.
