ISS has been selected for a $249 million US Air Force contract. According to the article, "ISS is one of seven prime contractors selected for the Multiple Award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract. The five year delivery order contract, through the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., will support the replacement of Theater Battle Management Core Systems (TBMCS), as well as development of Air Force C2 applications and information services for air, space, and cyberspace domains. It will address needs across the full software lifecycle, from concept development through fielding and sustainment. The work will provide architecture and functionality improvements, vastly improving warfighter productivity compared to existing systems that in some instances are leveraging technology initially fielded more than a decade ago."

Combining data analysis and visualization, advanced reporting, mobile and multi-touch interaction, geospatial intelligence, machine learning, geo-temporal analysis and semantic data processing, ISS customers are able to access, view and analyze information to make actionable decisions.
