Delivering Science & Technology analytics through Open Sources to counter China's strategic intentions and capabilities


Our platforms, software, and data-as-a-service capabilities collect, analyze, label, and visualize data on People, Places, Publications, Organizations, Technologies, Funding, and Social Media profiles. Our capabilities leverage natural language processing, natural language understanding, and a suite of data analytics and visualization tools to transform raw data into actionable intelligence.

Why Data Abyss?

Our Information Fusion Capabilities Discover the Unknown

Data Abyss offers platforms and solutions that empower users to search and identify valuable intelligence. We also provide unique knowledge and perspectives that help analysts waste less time on irrelevant or harmless entities, and spend more time focused on targeted and emerging threats. The Rivalry Platform was designed to improve intelligence analyst’s ability to identify S&T trends and generate forecasts by using advanced algorithms and visual analytics to reveal previously unknown relationships and correlations in massive Chinese research data sets. This capability, which streamlines search, review, triage, and synthesis can be used to identify, evaluate, and grow new and emerging technologies that have the potential for significant impact on our the U.S. governments missions as well as enhance situational awareness, evaluating courses of action, and measuring risk effects & impact.

Increased User Impact

Data Abyss assists its users to recognize entities that are worth their attention. Data Abyss tags entities with risk and impact indicators that are associated with known and potentially unknown risky and impactful entities. We identify risk by leveraging reference data sets of entities from Military End Users (MEU), Entity Lists (EL), Covered Lists (CL), and entities tracked by the Australia Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI). We leverage AI-assisted processing techniques to track down People's Liberation Army affiliates and U.S. Universities and U.S. entities connected to the PRC. With our platform users can better understand relationships associated with known and previously unknown risks to include risks to Universities, Labs, and other international organizations. This insight helps analysts deliver impact where it matters most. Our large and at massive scale parallel processing allows for a near complete picture of every Chinese Organizations relationships across the S&T spectrum. This near complete picture of every Chinese S&T Organizations relationships describes the existing organizational or company network. This computationally intensive process would be nearly impossible for analyst teams to manually derive in a life time. The relationships across these organizations contain billions of connections.
