Modus Operandi Awarded Missile Defense Agency Contract to Employ Movia™, AI/ML in the Validation of Emerging Requirements

MELBOURNE, Fla., October 5, 2021 – Modus Operandi, a company that delivers innovative software that harnesses data to empower smarter decisions, has been awarded a Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Phase II Enhancement SBIR contract for Advanced Development of Inception Technologies (ADIT). Modus Operandi’s Movia software applies artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to evaluate the technical feasibility of updates to MDA’s Ballistic Missile Defense System requirements. ADIT provides system engineering teams unique insight and innovative ways to continuously improve system requirements, while understanding their impact on pending system updates, prior to large budgetary expenditures.

ADIT provides a collaborative approach to the transformation of BMDS mission objectives to mission requirements, fusing input from many roles spread across CONUS and OCONUS sites. ADIT applies semantic and AI/ML capabilities to perform an impact analysis of each requirement. The automation of this analysis, combined with a web-based collaborative view, reduces the redundancy and errors of manual systems currently used in engineering requirements definition and analysis, and helps avoid the costly budget and schedule impacts that plague large platforms’ lifecycle management.

The capabilities provided by Modus Operandi’s ADIT are integral to MDA’s goal of technical preeminence to support our warfighters.
