Description:

The tasks outlined in this statement of work are for software
development in support of a number of projects within a US Government
Intelligence Agency. This office is responsible for researching new
methods and techniques to extract information from a variety of data
sources, including speech, image, and text. As a research
organization, the primary focus is on creating, developing, and
evaluating new methods and techniques to improve the automated
extraction of information from data. The prime tasks for this effort
include:
1) Development of new algorithms based on input and guidance from
 government researchers, in the general areas of information
 extraction, data mining, information retrieval, automatic question
 answering, and natural language processing techniques.
2) Integration of new or existing algorithms into a variety of
 processing platforms, including autonomous systems.
3) Evaluation and testing of algorithms and software packages.
4) Development of enhancements to existing algorithms and software
 packages.
5) Development of web-based graphical user interfaces to assist with
 algorithm development and evaluation.
6) Development of databases to support the algorithm development and
 evaluation.
7) Provide status briefings, technical papers or reports, and
 demonstrations as required.

Principal Software Engineer - This individual must have demonstrated
at least 10 years of experience in software analysis and design,
including at least 5 years of SIGINT experience. The Principal

3 of the following 7 areas: operating systems, computer theory,
compiler design, artificial intelligence, computer algorithms, linear
algebra, and numerical analysis.

Senior Software Engineer - This individual must have demonstrated at
least 10 years of experience in software analysis and design,
including at least 5 years of SIGINT experience. The Senior Software
Engineer must also have at least 3 years of experience with JAVA or
C++; at least 2 years of experience with information retrieval or
automatic question- answering on unstructured data using
natural-language queries; at least 2 years experience with ontologies
(other than wordnets and dictionaries); at least 2 years experience
with knowledge representation; and at least 2 years of experience with
natural language processing. Additionally, the individual must have
at least 4 months experience (or training) in 4 of the following 8
areas: operating systems, computer theory, compiler design, artificial
intelligence, database theory/ design, computer algorithms, linear
algebra, and numerical analysis.
