$25 million ISS contract to create jobs

The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory has awarded Intelligent Software Solutions a $25 million contract for software development.

The new contract will create between 50 and 75 new jobs in Colorado Springs, as well as new positions in other cities where ISS operates.

The yearlong contract is in addition to the existing $500 million program awarded to the company last year. The program uses software that helps users process, analyze and visualize intelligence information from several sources.

The new contract will provide software for both Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security customers, focusing on cloud computing technology and its use in intelligence gathering.

The contract encompasses more than 100 projects for 50 different groups, said Jay Jesse, president and co-founder of ISS.

Associated projects include supporting advanced research and development of command and control applications, as well as intelligence analysis tools. ISS also supports combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

ISS has offices in Colorado Springs, Washington, D.C., and other locations.
