Advanced Video Activity Analytics (AVAA)

Role: Technology transition and mission engineering support

Customers: SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific and JIDA

Prime Contractor: Booz-Allen Hamilton

AVAA is a Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Agency (JIDA) sponsored research and development program that is developing advanced analytic software capabilities to process, exploit and disseminate imagery and Full Motion Video (FMV) data. A primary objective of the AVAA program is to design and develop the (AVAA) application for interoperability with and integration into the US Navy’s Distributed Common Ground System – Navy (DCGS-N) Increment 2 (Inc. 2) and other Navy / Marine Corps Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) analysis systems. AVAA software will provide an automated and operationally-tailorable FMV analysis capability to Naval warfighters. High Side Technology is providing research and development, senior engineering, technology strategy, strategic-level ISR domain planning, and leading the transition of AVAA technologies into Naval and Intelligence Community (IC) programs.

Electronic Warfare Services Architecture (EWSA)

Role: Cybersecurity analysis, research, engineering, and architecture development

Customers: USMC and NAWC-WD Point Mugu

Prime Contractor: High Side Technology through the C5 Consortium

High Side Technology has provided support for the design and prototyping of MAGTF EWSA Tactical Edge Sharing Serviced (TESS), as well as cybersecurity engineering support to enable secure access and sharing of Joint and Naval EW/Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) information at multiple security levels at the tactical edge. High Side Technology’s design and engineering support included the selection and implementation of technical standards in order to rapidly integrate software-based technologies for more survivable and sustainable capabilities to meet tactical and enterprise-level information sharing and cybersecurity requirements. Through this project, High Side Technology researched and prototyped a Cybersecurity Assessment & Authorization (A&A) Template as a pathfinder to accelerate the development and fielding of modular, dynamic, and lightweight integrated software capabilities to meet the Marine Corps and joint forces’ tactical edge EW mission collaboration requirements.

Marine Corp Electronic Warfare (EW) | Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO)

Role: Technology and Engineering Support

Customers: NAWC WD Point Mugu

Prime Contractor: CSRA

High Side Technology (HST) is providing technology assessment, research, development, systems engineering, analysis, and planning services to the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWC-WD) Point Mugu in support of the Marine Corps’ Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Electronic Warfare (EW)/Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) programs, and in particular the Spectrum Services Framework (SSF) software development program. HST is identifying and assessing new technologies and cross-functional concepts with applicability to Naval EW, EMSO, and Integrated Fires mission areas. Additionally, HST supports the MAGTF EW/EMSO programs in identifying and leveraging selected research and development (R&D) initiatives of partner DoD and Intelligence Community (IC) organizations for advancement of MAGTF EW/EMSO capabilities.
