Northrop Grumman has been awarded a $7.2 million Air Force Research Laboratory contract for widely applicable streaming and static parallel-graph processing software.

Under the contract, Northrop Grumman "will identify and develop static and streaming graph analytics to solve five types of problem areas, anomaly detection, domain specific search, dependency mapping, N-x contingency analysis, and causal modeling of events," according to the Department of Defense contract announcement.

"This effort will focus on identifying new uses for graph analytics that have been abandoned in previous research due to processing, power, or size constraints," the DoD added.

The work is scheduled to be completed by October 2021.
