U.S. Space Force has awarded applied artificial intelligence solutions provider Geospark Analytics a $95 million firm-fixed price, indefinite delivery and quantity contract to provide near-real-time situational awareness capabilities to the entire federal government through its Hyperion platform.
The contract covers Phase III commercialization of Hyperion, after Geospark was previously awarded a smaller contract by the Air Force to deliver a series of Phase I, II and III enhancements to Hyperion including collaboration and mobile features for the Air Force, U.S. combatant commands and federal civilian agencies.
Under this expanded 5-year contract, the company will leverage Hyperion to help identify and predict emerging events to mitigate risk, recognize threats, enhance indications and warnings and provide predictive analytics capabilities.
“Our Hyperion platform is the only commercially available technology that can simultaneously alert users to breaking events, spikes in activity, and drops in stability via access to a web browser or mobile application from anywhere in the world at machine speed,” said Amanda Brownfield, president of Geospark Analytics.
She credits the 6.8 million unique data sources the company collects from Hyperion to make it possible for the program to be effective even in locations where social media aren’t popular.
“This is a truly amazing story of collaboration between a small, disruptive technology company and the government. It demonstrates that the government doesn’t have to look to Silicon Valley, Boston or Austin for innovation that matters,” said John Goolgasian, Geospark Analytics chief operating officer.
“This award is not only a game changer for us, but thru the implementation of the commercialization strategy, this Phase III SBIR ensures that the whole of the U.S. government and our commercial clients will benefit from this investment!” he added.
Work will be performed in Herndon, Virginia, and is slated to be completed Sept. 1, 2026.
