Noblis, Inc. has been selected as a prime contractor on the 5-year Joint Artificial Intelligence Center Test and Evaluation blanket purchase agreement.
“As an independent, nonprofit organization, Noblis is founded on delivering objective research, development, testing and evaluation services with the highest caliber of scientific and technical excellence,” said Glenn Hickok, vice president of Noblis’ defense mission area.
Under the contract, the Noblis team will serve as a shared service providing critical test and evaluation services to JAIC’s customers to ensure their software complies with the Defense Department’s artificial intelligence ethical principles. It also allows JAIC to save and repurpose test and evaluation funds for other pressing AI needs.
The Noblis team includes CalypsoAI and i3, and has more than 30 years of combined experience within DOD, the intelligence community and federal law enforcement agencies. The team brings experience in AI software design, development and continuous integration/continuous delivery and implementation, and comprehensive testing and evaluation.
“We’re looking forward to combining this pedigree with our collective team’s extensive AI and T&E experience to ensure that AI will be a force multiplier for the DoD for many years to come,” Hickok said.
