ntelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) is a woman-owned firm founded in 1987 by Drs. Leonard and Jacqueline Haynes. Since then, IAI has enjoyed consistent growth and has expanded into an organization of over 120 researchers and technical staff. IAI is headquartered in Rockville, Maryland and serves public and private sector clients throughout the United States and internationally. The firm is led by Chief Executive Officer Joseph E. Schwartz; President Vikram Manikonda; President Emeritus Leonard Haynes; Executive Vice President Jacqueline Haynes, Vice Presidents Ben Bachrach, Renato Levy, Roger Xu, Chujen Lin; Chief Scientist Eric van Doorn; and an outstanding group of senior scientists, engineers, and managers who direct our projects and administrative efforts.
Throughout its history, IAI has maintained its character as a diverse R&D "think tank." The interests of our scientists and engineers span a broad range of domains from distributed intelligent systems, sensors, signal processing, robotics, manufacturing, forensics, and transportation to education, training, and information technologies. Building on our research strengths, we have established service capabilities in our core technology areas. While our interests are varied, the center of our work is the development and application of artificial intelligence-based techniques.
Historically, much of our work has been funded by the U.S. Government through fully open and competitive research contracts and through competitive awards from the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. IAI's success is reflected by its selection in both 2000 and 2007 to receive the prestigious Tibbett’s Award from the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Small Business Technology Council (SBTC) for excellence in technology research and commercialization. In recent years the company has evolved to become a developer of productized services and technologies and an important R&D provider to first-tier integrators including BAE Systems, Boeing, CSC, EDS, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Northrop Grumman, and Raytheon as well as to commercial firms within the United States and internationally.
IAI is very effective at developing
their conception through the design, building, and testing of prototype systems. Our basic approach to commercializing our technology is to team with partners who have existing products, strong marketing positions and capabilities, and reputations as producers of related products. IAI's technologies in the marketplace today include two- and three-dimensional forensics imaging equipment used for matching bullets; platforms, and tools for the development of agent-based systems; perimeter security systems; scheduling systems for complex and dynamically changing environments; tools for fault diagnosis and prognosis in complex systems; ad hoc mobile network protocols; and automated tutoring systems for literacy training.
IAI continues to maintain its core focus as an R&D company responding to the complex technological requirements of the federal Government and our commercial clients. We are actively focusing on transitioning our technology to major Government and commercial programs and are aggressively seeking partners to assist in the commercialization of our technology for current and future market niches.
