GOVT/EXTERNAL FUNDING SOURCES
Government Funding/Support to Date: ISSAC was awarded a Phase I SBIR in 2011 by the Missile Defense Agency Directorate for Modeling and Simulation in response to a need for better articulation and management of the needs of a diverse set of stakeholders across a wide range of intended uses. The Modeling and Simulation Directorate, at the time, used a number of different methodologies and supporting management repositories for the task of gathering stakeholder requirements. This was, and continues to be, a very manpower intensive task that is prone to duplication and inaccuracy. The methods and technology requested in the SBIR solicitation is intended to remedy this situation.
