IAI Awarded DHS Contract to Continue Development of a Dismounted Adversary Recognition and Tracking System

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Oct. 23, 2019 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract modification by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to continue the development of a tracking and recognition system for small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

In this contract, IAI will develop a solution that will assist Border Patrol agents to detect, identify, classify, track, and apprehend individuals attempting to avoid capture or detection. The system will use machine vision and deep learning algorithms to detect and track people, and identify items of interest such as bundles and weapons. The software architecture will be designed to deliver the results of the analytics on mobile devices providing agents with greater on-the-go situational awareness.

IAI is a leader in the research and development of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies, including text, video, and sensor data analytics. IAI develops AI/ML-based products and customized solutions to address government and industry needs in application areas such as full motion video analytics, prognostics and diagnostics, natural language processing, cyber threat detection and prediction, surveillance, and reconnaissance.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by DHS to support boarder agents with image analytics tools using small UAVs,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
