Washington, D.C – October 03, 2014 – Novetta Solutions, LLC (“Novetta”), a portfolio company of Arlington Capital Partners and a leader in advanced analytics technology solutions, today announced the acquisition of Digital Results Group, Inc. and Sentinel Applied Analytics, LLC. The acquisitions boost Novetta’s offerings by adding scalable web based data fusion software and access to new commercial, defense, and law enforcement customer solutions.
Based in Boston, MA, Digital Results Group (DRG) is a leading provider of innovative web-enabled software and technology solutions that fuse, in real-time, sensor and intelligence data to support operations from the tactical edge to the global enterprise primarily for defense customers. Sentinel Applied Analytics (Sentinel) is a specialized data analytics firm that extracts value from data using applied statistical techniques to identify patterns, trends and relationships. Sentinel’s primary customer is the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, supplemented by projects with financial institutions, global law firms, and foreign governments. “We are delighted to welcome DRG and Sentinel into the Novetta family as their specialized software and solutions add niche capabilities to our analytics offerings that have already been gaining market momentum and increased adoption. The acquisitions also enable expansion into new customer sets,” said Novetta CEO Peter B. LaMontagne. “And importantly, from an employee and cultural perspective, DRG and Sentinel will be a great fit inside Novetta.”
DRG’s technology solutions support the collection, processing and exploitation of multi-intelligence data across security domains to support real-time operations and forensic analysis to improve collaboration, understanding, mission execution and outcome. DRG’s solutions are deployed to support a range of mission profiles to include ISR/persistent surveillance, force protection, precision fires, mission support/battle command, and intelligence collection, analysis and reporting. At the core of the platform is a widely fielded, C2/PED software solution called Ageon ISR which has been tailored to meet unique mission requirements and computing environments to provide unparalleled mission flexibility.
Commenting on the technology, Novetta Chief Data Scientist, Kris Heim stated, “DRG’s web-enabled data fusion software provides a disruptive and scalable solution to cross domain multi-int command and control challenges; this approach is particularly helpful as enterprises struggle with increasing numbers and types of data feeds with volumes that are expanding exponentially. We look forward to incorporating DRG capabilities into our offerings.”
“DRG and Novetta’s solutions are the perfect complement for each other as the defense and intelligence community seek to bring their ops/intel convergence vision to life,” says DRG CEO, Stephen St. Mary. “Our technology is at the forefront of collecting and exploiting tactical sensor, operations and intelligence data that will tie into Novetta’s big data analytic solutions at the National level. This will allow both organizations to deliver richer, higher-value situational awareness and intelligence to support real-time operations and forensic analysis.”

Sentinel accelerates the delivery of advanced analytics and reduces associated costs of litigation, compliance and risk management for banks and corporate clients.
