WASHINGTON, March 15, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Greystones Group was awarded a prime contract with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to support the Visual Media Reasoning (VMR) Program at the National Media Exploitation Center (NMEC). Under this program, Greystones will optimize VMR to deploy as both a standalone configuration and in an elastic cloud environment, developing multiuser capability, data compartmentalization and hardening the system for operational use. Greystones will also provide system integration, testing, Installation, Operations and Maintenance as well as system Training and Documentation.

Why digital media reasoning?  Our adversaries use digital photos and videos on social media and other networks, whether authentic or made up, to claim responsibility for events or to illustrate capabilities directly intended to recruit, instill fear and cause social outcomes that supports their intent.  The sheer volume of this visual media has outpaced an analyst’s ability to review, analyze, synthesize and understand, to make actionable recommendations.

Upon award, Greystones CEO, Ms., Sheila Duffy stated:

“Our company understands, to engage the threat requires a full understanding of the operational environment.  Adversary access to cyberspace and the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) challenge our operations every day and we cannot fall behind.  VMR will enable operational commanders to better understand the threat to their operations and ensure that they make more informed decisions for their mission success.”

The VMR application, when fully developed and deployed will extract operationally relevant mission and operational information from the expanse of photos and video in order to support development of actionable intelligence. This program supports the transition of the VMR from a successful R&D program to an operational, visual product at the national-level media exploitation centers that provides those commanders and leaders a full understanding of the threat.
