The Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) Portal is the premier search-and-discovery tool used within the intelligence community (IC). It provides access to more than 1.7 million intelligence products used by analysts, warfighters, policymakers, and decision-makers worldwide. This important project by the Department of Defense expands the usefulness of MASINT products by making them accessible and usable.
Riverside Research and our teammates have been on-site, supporting the MASINT Portal program since day one. Upon its inception over eight years ago, we worked closely with our government client assisting with developing requirements, providing customer outreach, supporting advocacy and funding initiatives, and serving as an integral part of the team that brought the capability to the forefront of the MASINT and intelligence communities. Our engineers provided strong technical and programmatic leadership, overseeing the development of the MASINT Portal from a single network interface with a few producers, to a robust service-oriented architecture supporting over 50 producers and providing access across several network domains.
Today, engineers on our team provide rapid prototype tools to facilitate the dissemination of critical intelligence information to the nation’s defense communities. The tools developed are used daily to assess the state of the discipline in relation to critical world events and requirements.
The MASINT Portal program has earned a reputation for world-class customer service. Accolades from customers around the globe are a routine occurrence. Our team members are sought after, often by name, to provide direct support to the warfighters on the ground and in harm’s way. The Riverside Research team works hand-in-hand with the MASINT Portal Program Office and was an integral part of the Portal team that received the National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation.
