Initiate Systems Selected by Raytheon to Enhance FBI's National Data Exchange


Initiate Identity HubTM software from Initiate Systems, Inc. has been selected by Raytheon Company as a core component of the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services Division’s National Data Exchange (N-DEx) program. Initiate Systems was selected as a member of the Raytheon Team for the N-DEx program.

ebizQ received the following details:

This announcement further extends the relationship Initiate Systems currently enjoys within the Intelligence and Homeland Security communities, from its work with the U.S. Navy Law Enforcement Exchange (LInX) to its status as an In-Q-Tel portfolio company.

FBI National Data Exchange

The FBI’s N-DEx program will allow more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide - from local jurisdictions to state and federal agencies - to collect and share incident-related information and correlate crime data on a national basis.

Raytheon will design, develop, engineer, and implement the N-DEx system. Initiate Identity HubTM software will provide the system’s critical discovery services, and will provide highly accurate and efficient record matching through proven entity resolution, correlation, and search capabilities.

Initiate Systems was selected as a Tier 1 software provider after an exhaustive analysis of a wide range of Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) software products.


Counting Sheep
>From the desk of Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director, ACLU

Dear Friend,

We've had an overwhelming response to our "Congress as
Sheep" ad and thanks to the thousands of you who contributed
they'll be running in Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid's
districts next week.

But we aren't just out to create a stir. We intend to win by
forcing a timid Congress to clean up the mess it made when it gave
Bush sweeping new powers to spy on Americans and by demanding that
they act now to disavow torture, restore habeas corpus, and shut down
Guantanamo prison.

We need your help today to fund a massive push to demand that Congress
restore our freedoms now.

We'll use your support for an all out campaign to go to court,
mobilize activists nationwide and continue to run ads.

Recently, ACLU lawyers took an unprecedented step by calling on the
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to release its legal opinions
related to the NSA spying operation. And they, in turn, have ordered
the Bush administration to respond to our demand.

The ACLU is also calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to stick to
its guns and hold the White House and Justice Department in contempt
if they keep refusing to produce documents related to the NSA spying

If the last 8 months have taught us anything, it's that Congress
will not act to restore our freedoms unless we force them to.
That's why our "Congress as Sheep" ads have to be
the start of something bigger: an all-out ACLU campaign to make sure
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi aren't leading a Congress that will
fail freedom and to put all members of Congress on notice.

Let's make Congress reverse the damage it has done and finally
act with courage to stand up for freedom.
Support the ACLU in demanding that Congress restores our freedom now.

With your support, the ACLU will keep pressing in the courts, in
Congress and in the court of public opinion. Thank you for your

Warm Regards,
Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director

ACLU, 125 Broad Street, 18th Floor New York, NY 10004
