DCGS: Palantir and BAE Seem to Be Winners

March 9, 2020

DarkCyber noted “BAE, Palantir Earn Spots on $823M Army Contract.” The Distributed Common Ground System Army has an interesting history. To make a long story short, DCGS chugs along. BAE System will compete for task orders with Palantir.

The write up reports:

That system provides the Army with intelligence from multiple sources over networks of varying security levels and includes “laptops and desktops, fixed, portable and vehicle-mounted servers, and ground stations to receive, share and store collected intelligence” and software programs to analyze and share that information.

According to the US Army:

DCGS-A connects Soldiers to the Intelligence Community, other Services, multiple joint intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms and sensors and Army Mission Command systems. It gives commanders the ability to view ISR information in one place. It also integrates that information into tools that can support intelligence development.

The key point is that DCGS A becomes a “model” approach for other military branches as well as for some of the US government’s enforcement entities.
