Nashville firm offers tool to fight terror

Chief Executive Officer Timothy Estes discusses Digital Reasoning Systems. His company is working with the Army to spot links in intelligence data.

By BUSH BERNARD
Staff Writer

A Nashville company is developing software to help the Army sift through millions of pages of information each day as it seeks to get the upper hand in the global war on terrorism.

Digital Reasoning Systems of Nashville has secured a $7 million contract from the Army's National Ground Intelligence Center in Charlottesville, Va., to adapt its Interceptor brand data-search software package to military intelligence uses.

The software sorts through the equivalent of five to 10 pages of information a second and could help analysts discover key links between what might seem at first to be unrelated information, its creators said.

The same algorithms that search for common threads in military intelligence reports could be used by the federal Food and Drug Administration to review drug trials to detect health risks earlier, he suggested. Doctors might be able to use the system to review medical records, or law enforcement agencies could use it to hunt down criminals. ''There should be all these dividends,'' he said.
