ISSAC offers enlightened data solutions

This 2015 Colorado Company to Watch is working on research and development for the Navy


(Colorado Springs – – Founded: 2006

ISSAC is a service disabled, veteran-owned small business with core competencies in:

  • Data analytics
  • Systems engineering and integration
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Algorithm and software development

The firm has experienced rapid growth, offering a competitive advantage with its “enlightened data solutions” for business transitions with the U.S. Department of Defense. This technology can absorb and interpret written and spoken English, aggregate and analyze numerical data, relate data items to one another to harness causality, and provide hypotheses and prescriptions for action. The artificial intelligence system quickly and automatically queries subject matter experts to enhance solutions from data analysts in less time, computing power and expense than traditional methods.

The company’s first contract was with Lockheed Martin to support the U.S. Missile Defense Agency. ISSAC has acquired DoD contracts and agreements with other defense industry partners.

Last year, ISSAC was saluted as a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) champion by the Colorado Education Initiative.

WORTH WATCHING: ISSAC is currently working on research and development projects for the U.S. Navy for next-generation Electric Ship Program. Though the Colorado Springs-based business is a DoD aerospace-focused company, the organization is quickly pivoting into five commercial verticals: health care, energy, finance analytics, logistics optimizations and commercial aerospace.
