Airship AI Holdings, Inc. has been awarded multiple firm fixed price contracts worth $10.9 million by an agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). These contracts will provide advanced integrated solutions for real-time intelligence collection operations along the United States’ borders.
The company's Outpost AI solution will be utilized to support these operations, offering local high-definition recording, user defined low-bit rate video stream encoding, and on-board edge analytic capabilities for advanced object detection and recognition.
Outpost AI is a small form factor edge compute device designed to run in the most rugged operational environments. It leverages an on-board deep learning accelerator to structure and analyze significant amounts of data at the edge, in real-time, extracting actionable intelligence using a variety of hot-swappable, custom-trained inference engines. Once extracted, the encrypted data is seamlessly streamed to Airship AI’s back-end enterprise management platform Acropolis, for analysis and distribution.
Paul Allen, President of Airship AI, commented on the contract awards, saying, “These awards affirm Airship AI’s strategic vision of providing tailored solutions designed to meet exacting and rapidly evolving technical requirements for those on our nation’s front lines.”
John Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Airship AI, added, “Border security is rapidly modernizing in response to increased threat assessments and activity, with the global border security market projected to reach $22.9 billion by 2023. Airship AI is proud to be a part of this effort, and we look forward to continuing to provide the most advanced solutions to those serving our country.”
