Department Description:

The Center for Analysis Systems and Applications \(CASA\) is an internship program that gives students the opportunity to develop next\-generation software systems for compelling national security missions\. Interns work alongside professional staff on some of the most complex and challenging data analysis problems that our nation faces\. Collaborate with a team of software engineering experts developing a variety of significant mission applications, including remote sensing, data analysis, and real\-time applications\. Projects range from small R&D efforts to large, multi\-disciplinary teams developing software for large, complex integrated systems\.

The CASA program is managed on behalf of the Systems Mission Engineering Center \(Center 6300\)\. We are responsible for the analysis, design, and implementation of complex data analysis systems associated with multi\-sensor and heterogeneous sensor applications to assist in the detection, location, and characterization of events and activities of interest\. Our work involves the research and development of algorithms and applications that assist users in the processing, exploitation and dissemination of data and information for compelling nonproliferation and national security missions\. We create first\-of\-a\-kind data analysis systems, subsystems, and analysis tools to provide innovative solutions for our customers that others cannot achieve\. We design, build, deploy, and enhance analysis systems that transform data to information to knowledge to decisions\. These systems are targeted for a range of applications, including: remote sensing systems; data acquisition, management, and fusion; distributed computing and analysis; modeling and simulation; and both real\-time and off\-line data processing, analysis, exploitation and dissemination\.
