Information Technology

ESC hones technologies and capabilities for a variety of DOD, law enforcement, and private customers with very complex mission requirements and with massive amounts of collected information. ESC develops solutions to enable our customers to collect, store and access the data they need every time they need it. We have developed an architecture to support the storage of information gathering systems and we also developed code and software to help access the data easily integrating with other existing databases so that information can be accessible, integrated and shared.

Controlled access is vital to data protection and investigation integrity. ESC offers processes and authentication solutions that have ensuring those that need to have access to and those that do not require access do not obtain it. Our experience in acquiring, processing, and exploiting data has supported military and law enforcement in many situations, to include austere environments. Finally, ESC has developed systems that help law enforcement officers or analysts pull all the collected information together to develop a picture of what the information is saying and how they are to move forward in their processes or decision making.

Our Core Information Technology Services

Enterprise Architecture

ESC knows that for our customers to be successful, they require agile processes and quickly-modified and cogent product solutions.  Today’s business and government climate are characterized in part by constant change.  Regulations and technologies change, customer needs evolve, competitors and opposing forces constantly seek to improve their capabilities and tactics.  ESC’s customers demand processes and products in a timely and fiscally-conscious manner capable of sustaining client growth and mission evolution.

Our consultants have many years of experience in developing long- and short-term System Architecture strategies, defining System Architectures for both large and small systems and System Architecture governance.  Our Architectural philosophy is centered on the customers’ business needs and developed to provide a solid foundation upon which the customer can build reliable, flexible and low-cost software solutions. Our experience is broad-based, ranging from evolving current (“legacy”) architectures into modern models to developing new architectures for “from the ground-up” projects.

ESC’s architectural strategy encompasses:

  • Supporting the customer’s business needs – today and tomorrow

  • Flexibility/Adaptability/Extensibility

  • Improved time to market

  • Reduced total cost of ownership

  • Careful buy vs. build analysis

This strategy is supported by a technical philosophy characterized by specific factors:

  • Standards-based

  • Platform independent

  • Geographic/location neutral

  • Media neutral data markup

  • Modularization and well thought out placement of function planning

  • Service orientation

  • Multiple language support

ESC constantly evaluates new technology and software products and establishes partnerships with best of breed software vendors to provide its customers with the highest quality, lowest cost, most flexible and longest enduring solutions possible.

Software Development

Custom software development at Eiden Systems Corporation (ESC) is about delivering exceptional results that drive the value of your business. Our application architects and software engineers are experts that work with you every step of the process as a dedicated team to solve your most complex problems. Our collaborative approach across organizations fosters creative thinking that delivers results.

We work side by side with enterprise-level leaders in law enforcement, intelligence, and technology. Projects range from designing new Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms to mobile and cloud-deployed applications, among others.

Our software consulting services kick off with a Research and Discovery phase. We research your business, gather requirements and establish the roadmap we’ll follow. We observe and analyze patterns, research user profiles and conduct usability tests, all while connecting directly with your Product Owner to design a high-quality user experience. We provide reports and recommendations based on our findings, ensuring that no nuance or subtlety that may be unique to your organization is overlooked.

We use Dual-Track Scrum, a form of Agile methodology that combines discovery and design with implementation, concurrently. This method ensures successful on-time and on-budget delivery of your software. We work in sprints, allowing you access to a staging environment where you will perform acceptance of your continuously evolving application.

Managed Attribution OSINT Capability

When fused and/or validated with classified intelligence, open-source intelligence (OSINT) becomes a force-multiplier in the development of true “all-source” intelligence. Our team at ESC aggressively seeks in OSINT sources, specific and credible data that describes or informs on threats, ensures source validation, or opens the door for new tips and leads. For National Security missions and law enforcement investigations, we use OSINT to enhance the overall interpretation of how specific threat data are linked to people, places, things, and actions. We provide increased “context” of a specific subject, threat, or entity, developing products that enhance watchlisting profiles, threat network diagrams, individual dossiers, and efforts to define or predict behavior and sentiment.

Our ESC Data Exploitation, Analysis, and Dissemination (DEAD) Lab is equipped with OSINT tools, processes, and data solutions that marry forensic electronic exploitation, managed-attribution internet research, digital and document forensics, and much more. For a variety of commercial, defense, and law enforcement customers, our DEAD Lab OSINT research experts use managed-attribution to develop human attribution within:

  • Companies—webpages, blogs, RFQs, social media profiles, shipping, import/export, financial and business data
  • Individual activities and relationships-Social networking, publically-available data, blogs
  • Technologies/components-webpages, schematics, data sheets
  • Locations/geospatial images
  • Dark Web (various, please ask for more information)

Our research is done in compliance with customer authorizations and permissions for OSINT research, and the DEAD lab is constantly updated with new software and obfuscation capabilities. Each OSINT product is tailor-made to respond to unique, customer requirements, and always includes all references and key judgments so that customers can “rediscover” all sources and data for a variety of operational and investigative mission requirements.

Contact us today to find out more exciting DEAD Lab news and how we can enable your mission or investigative needs with state-of-the-art OSINT support.
