The Defense Department, which among five agencies involved in the initiative launch, plans to pursue projects for autonomous systems.

The Pentagon will also allocate part of the $250 million investment for big data research toward developing methods to decode foreign secrets, NextGov reports.

As part of the big data initiative, the Pentagon will maintain a project that allows organizations to present new technologies to the National Security Agency that could help the military to make and break codes.

The agency will also extend the NSA-Central Security Service Commercial Solutions Center program, which employs cryptology specialists.

The center will host a vendor capability showcase where participants will present new technology compliant with the national security community and NSA-CSS requirements.
