Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA)
Systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) involves assisting the government with identifying and translating user requirements into specific technology/system research and development objectives to illustrate the benefits of applying the technology/system to military equipment users and developers; identifying the military and commercial utility of new products and technology system developments; defining system architectures and supporting subsystem performance requirements; generating advocacy for programs and efforts within the user communities; and generating draft transition agreements and requirement documents.
Tasking typically involves complex analyses that require multidisciplinary technical integration of expertise in the following functional areas: requirements, alternatives, and cost analysis; systems engineering and planning; human systems integration; environmental impact and safety assessments; logistics; test and evaluation; scientific and technical studies; and acquisition strategy.
IEA provides support in the areas of manufacturing readiness; technology maturity analysis; risk analysis; market analysis, user wants and needs assessments, and gap analysis; business case development; generation of data; and participation in proposal evaluations in an advisory capacity. IEA provides SETA services for the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and School on the TRADOC Capability Manager (TCM)-Airborne/Aerial Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (AISR) Program and previously performed a similar effort for the TCM-Ground Sensors (GS) program under our Veterans Technology Services (VETS) Government-wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) contract vehicle. The objective of the TCM-AISR program is to develop, define, document, and defend critical manned and unmanned AISR systems and their sensors/payloads systems requirements. For TCM-GS, we worked to develop and document the capabilities for automation support, communications, and interoperability requirements within the following GS areas:
- • signal intelligence (SIGINT)
- • counter radio controlled improvised explosive device electronic warfare (CREW)
- • measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT)
- • biometrics and human intelligence (HUMINT)
In August 2008, the Army recognized IEA’s contributions and honored us with the Featured SDVO Small Business Award.
