TIA - Technology and innovation analytics on Machine Learning Steroids
What is TIA?
Technology Innovation Analytics (TIA) is a proprietary AaaS (Analytics as a Service) platform that provides unique insight and intel into technology, innovation, and capability development.
TIA is currently focused on military technology development. TIA uses an AI agent (comprised of a system of machine learning models) to distill the US DOD's RDT&E budget into key technologies or capabilities. Our analysts, acting as humans-in-the-loop, provide SME that further adds context and intel to our analytics.
TIA is presented in an interactive Amazon Web Services Quicksight dashboard that leverages machine learning models, natural language processing, and data visualization.
How is TIA different from other federal budget analysis tools?
TIA uncovers capabilities implicit to the DOD’s RDT&E budget and provides a matrix of capabilities that lays over the DOD’s budget program elements.
Thus, a budget program element can be comprised of multiple implicit capabilities.
For example, DARPA’s Gremlins program is a single program element or budget line in DARPA’s RDT&E budget, however TIA can proportion that single budget line into the program’s enabling capabilities: AI and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

Why is TIA better than other budget analysis tools?
TIA distills the DOD RDT&E budget into the implicit capabilities that are required to enable that budget.
TIA determines the amount of funding that supports an enabling capability without double counting budget line items or program elements.
TIA identifies every budget line item or program element that depends on an enabling, implicit capability for successful execution.
TIA can identify SBIR/STTR awards aligned with each capability and the small businesses conducting research in each enabling capability.
TIA can provide near-peer adversary benchmarking through patent and scholarly paper ingestion.
TIA allows prime contractors and industry partners to better understand the DOD's RDT&E funding strategy for a particular warfighter capability. If your company is investing IRAD in a capability, don't you want to make sure the DOD is funding that capability through its valley-of-death?
TIA highlights budget redundancies and overlap between services, leading to more effective use of total DOD funding.
