NSA seeks analysis technologies

The National Security Agency is looking for analysis software to help it sort through the immense amount of data it collects, said NSA research director Eric Haseltine this month at a meeting of the Technology Council of Anne Arundel County, Md.

But when NSA invited a representative from a large Silicon Valley relational database mining company to discuss ways of ingesting this data, the agency found the company had little to offer, he said.

"We told him our problems and he said, 'That's way beyond anything we can do,'" Haseltine said.

To help find or develop new analysis software, NSA awarded a one-year, $445,000 contract to the Chesapeake Innovation Center of Annapolis, Md.
