U.S. Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS)
In the United States, Lockheed Martin’s census team most recently supported the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 Census by serving as the prime contractor for the Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) contract.
The DRIS program accurately captured complex data and helped the U.S. Census Bureau process 167 million forms employing high-speed color image processing and data capture technology. The Lockheed Martin team developed and applied numerous tools to measure and ensure data quality, and exceeded all program accuracy rates. Most notably, the team achieved an optical mark recognition accuracy rate of 99.98 percent, which was above the required 99.8 percent required rate.
