The Wisconsin Security Research Consortium has signed a subcontract with Altamira Technologies Corp., a technology company working to solve problems of national importance, to support the Washington-based company’s “Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity” contracts.
One of the many thrust areas of the agreement is working with “big data” and applying data science analytical solutions to emerging security challenges.
Through this partnership, the two organizations will be able to develop and support new funded research initiatives that are complementary to the research assets found in both organizations. General goals of the agreement include:
- Support workforce development in Wisconsin
- Create internship possibilities for Wisconsin students
- Provide opportunities for Wisconsin researchers to solve problems of national importance
“We’re thrilled about our expanding network of strategic partnerships such as WSRC that accelerate innovative cyber, big data and analytical solutions to help solve some of our customers’ most challenging problems,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, chief strategy officer for Altamira Technologies Corp.
“This partnership plays into the research strengths found in Wisconsin, which include making sense of ‘big data’ and how that may apply to research work in cybersecurity,” added Jack Heinemann, director of WSRC.
The Wisconsin Security Research Consortium is a non-profit organization that connects Wisconsin researchers with federal opportunities, often in sectors such as national security. It is affiliated with the Wisconsin Technology Council. The WSRC’s board of directors includes representatives of major research institutions and private companies. The WSRC operates the Wisconsin Information Security Center.
