A developer of applied artificial intelligence solutions for global threat and risk assessment, Geospark Analytics has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Transportation Command.
USTRANSCOM will use the company’s Hyperion platform to enable analysts and operators with holistic situational awareness and artificial intelligence-driven forecasting of risks at the global level. The custom model will pinpoint and characterize events of interest while placing them in a framework that allows for quantitative and qualitative analysis of their impact, said Geospark Analytics Chief Data Science Officer Matt McKnight.
“Geospark Analytics’ massive data processing platform is able to take the information we already extract from millions of sources and place it into customer-specific frameworks,” he added. “This puts the power of machine learning to work by making analysts more efficient and effective prosecuting the specialized aspects of their jobs that generalized solutions cannot support.”
As the system is assessing and analyzing high volumes of data in near real-time, users will be armed with the tools to identify anomalies, spikes in relevant activity, and track stability changes to orient users toward areas of potential concern. Geospark Analytics will also be building a new type of custom model for the command to quantify a complex network of geopolitical relationships for use inside the platform.
This is the second task order on the company’s recently awarded 5 year, $95 million Space Force-sponsored, U.S. governmentwide indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.
