Applied artificial intelligence solutions provider Geospark Analytics has been awarded a Special Phase II Small Business Innovation Research contract from the U.S. Air Force AFWERX.
The contract calls for Geospark Analytics to extend the Hyperion mobile application to streamline the sharing of threat information and analysis between Air Force flight crews and Air Force intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and operational support units.
“At Geospark Analytics we are never satisfied, and breaking events and alert notifications, while useful, are table stakes,” said Amanda Brownfield, president of Geospark Analytics.
“Imagine if we could move beyond the use of risk indicators and management programs in our threat assessments to focus on capturing emerging risks with the use of AI and advanced analytics,” she continued. “Then imagine again if we could extend that capability from the operations center and put it into the hands of the operators who are on the front lines with the additional ability to collaborate more efficiently. It’s a game changing evolution for our product.”
This is the fourth SBIR award for Geospark Analytics’ Hyperion cloud-based platform, which provides analysts and operators situational awareness and an AI-driven forecast of political, economic and social risk across the globe.
