Endeca, the leading provider of Guided Navigation®, Search and Analysis solutions announced today it has signed a deal with In-Q-Tel to introduce Endeca’s next-generation enterprise search and navigation technology to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

The deal is the latest with In-Q-Tel, a private, independent, not-for-profit venture group established by the Central Intelligence Agency. The search and navigation solution is part of Endeca’s recently announced Government Search and Analysis Solutions.

“This represents In-Q-Tel’s first program with our new partners at the Defense Intelligence Agency,” said Gilman Louie, President and CEO of In-Q-Tel. “Today In-Q-Tel is working with multiple organizations in the IC. Our goal is to bring innovative technology from the commercial sector, such as Endeca, to help solve some of the most pressing national security challenges the IC faces.”

In late 2003, In-Q-Tel signed a significant strategic investment and development deal with Endeca, which focused its successful commercial technology on the government and national security markets. Endeca Government Solutions help public-sector organizations and intelligence and law enforcement agencies to integrate, discover, navigate, and analyze data to solve the problems associated with information overload.
