Business Group Highlights


The Intelligence group provides high-end systems engineering and integration products and services, data analytics and software development to national and military intelligence customers. Serving federal agencies and the Intelligence Community for more than 50 years, the Intelligence group helps our clients meet their mission needs by providing trusted advisors, leading-edge technologies, and innovative solutions.


Serve as the TDP Cloud Engineer for both TDP-Enterprise Interoperability and TDP-Coalition Projects. The TDP CE provides System Engineering & Integration in direct support of interoperability and coalition activities by employing a cloud-based agile mission solution integration approach. The TDP-CE will decompose mission needs into total systems solutions, define cloud architecture and technical baselines, lead technical implementation and integration, and coordinate across mission partners and segments.

The TDP Interoperability Project provides direct SE&I support to the DCGS GFT (Distributed Common Ground/Surface System GEOINT Functional Team) driving implementation of the Under-Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USDI) objectives for a multi-national info sharing environment, and serves as the SE&I enabler for NGA (serving as USDI Executive Agency) leading planning and execution of the annual premier IC/DoD Joint Services and Allied ISR Interoperability Exercise Enterprise Challenge (EC). EC offers participants a platform to conduct RDT&E integration and interoperability assessment activities for GEOINT support to the Defense Intelligence Information Environment (DI2E) cloud. The program leads interoperability testing throughout the year leveraging Limited Objective Events (LOE) culminating in the annual EC Main Exercise, documenting lessons learned and the recommended way-ahead for the DI2E interoperability and data sharing goals, with and between the US and Partners.

The TDP Cloud Engineer will provide Cloud SME SE&I support to implement the Distributed Common Ground/Surface System (DCGS) Coalition Focus Team (CFT) mission in accordance with government directed program plans, schedule and milestones. The DCGS CFT Core team provides a wide range of technical services to support coalition partners and the IC improving interoperability and integration of DI2E/DCGS cloud architectures with ISR architectures of partners, serving as Trusted Advisors implementing a new Coalition intelligence-sharing paradigm. Their direct support of NATO and Coalition Partners active engagement in warfighting interoperability exercises has proven invaluable toward fulfilling significant IC/DoD mission utility gains with data transfer between the modernized DCGS Coalition Data Broker (CDB) and coalition partner systems. They leverage significant expertise directly contributing to Centaur Modernization, improving Coalition information-sharing and readiness.
