Lucid Imagination, maker of open-source search software tailored to enterprise applications, has added undisclosed funds from In-Q-Tel to its first round of capital. It had previously raised $6 million in the round from Granite Ventures and Walden International, according to VentureWire.

Based in San Mateo, Calif., the company will use its new money to grow its customer support headcount. In-Q-Tel says it was especially interested in Lucid’s products that could appeal to U.S. intelligence agency clients.
