Founded to apply emerging information technology solutions to national security problems, in 2017 Milcord was acquired by fellow MA (128) based, SBIR-involved firm Aptima -- a firm with expertise in human-machine interface applications in defense and intelligence. The merger kept the resultant entity well within the <500 employment requirment for SBIR eligibilty. Milford's focus expected to remain on open source software platforms in support of civil information management in complex operations, decision models for course of action forecasting, data marts for integrating strategic and tactical human terrain data, analysis of social media data, mobile decision aid apps for use in planning operations, cyber threat intelligence applications, and insider threat detection. The firm gathers real-time threat intelligence about the ecosystem used in cyber attacks -- botnets, intrusions, phishing scams, spam campaigns, malware delivery, and Distributed Denial of Service attacks. Using an open innovation approach that leverages the complementary experience of firm's team and partners to reduce project risk and accelerate the research to the commercialization phase, the firm employs a scrum software project management and development methodology based on delivery of software in short sprint cycles on open source software platforms.
