Aptima Corporation – Operational Relevance, DARPA and Army Research Laboratory (ARL) SBIR entering Phase III
Apex Analytics began working with Aptima Corporation in 2012, with a focus on facilitating the research, development and transition of a software capability called Automated Collaboration Collection & Relationship Understanding Environment (ACCRUE). Apex has worked closely with Aptima and Army Research Lab (ARL) personnel over the past three years to shape the development of the ACCRUE tool. In this role, Apex provided the linkage to the Army through a close relationship with the Mission Command Training Program (MCTP). Apex facilitated the ACCRUE development team’s participation and data collection in over seven MCTP brigade combat team (BCT) exercises. The current ACCRUE project, as a phase III Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR), is nearing transition readiness. Apex Analytics Group is continuing its partnership with Aptima and expanding its involvement to include transition facilitation for the ACCRUE tool. Over the next several months, Apex will help Aptima to ensure the critical transition phase of ACCRUE is successfully executed.
