U.S. Air Force to enhance satellite imagery analysis
Veritone, creator of an operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE, has been awarded key subcontracts under a U.S. Air Force project that will use aiWARE to increase the speed and accuracy of overhead imagery analysis.
AFWERX, the Air Force’s innovation unit, awarded a Phase II contract under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to prime contractor alYnmnt. Veritone has been awarded subcontracts for software license and technology development services totaling $1.3 million in support of this program.
The Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the SBIR process in an attempt to speed up the experience and broaden the pool of potential applicants.
aiWARE orchestrates a diverse ecosystem of machine learning models to transform audio, video, text, and other data sources into actionable intelligence. With aiWARE, organizations can save manual review time, gain valuable data insights, and cognitively enrich end-to-end workflows.
“Veritone is thrilled and honored to be part of the team that won this contract from one of the most respected and technologically advanced U.S. government agencies,” said Chad Steelberg, CEO of Veritone.
“This is a massive win for Veritone aiWARE,” added Jon Gacek, head of government, legal and compliance at Veritone. “We expect the Phase II project to be a big success for our country and its national security.”
Under the terms of the Phase II contract, alYnmnt will develop software integrated with Veritone aiWARE to process overhead imagery using the optimal combination of AI object detection engines. The contract expectation is that aiWARE will significantly increase the speed, accuracy, throughput, and productivity of imagery analysts by pre-processing intelligence imagery and video with object detection engines.
