IAI Awarded Missile Defense Agency Contract to Develop Radiation Hardened Machine Vision Hardware Platform for Space Applications

ROCKVILLE, Md.—February 10, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the Missile Defense Agency to develop a space-qualifiable hardware solution for next generation machine vision applications.

In this contract, IAI will develop a reprogrammable computer hardware technology to host machine vision algorithms. The solution will keep pace with modern large-format imaging sensors, emerging algorithm processing, and memory requirements. IAI will address both the environmental and low size weight and power (SWaP) requirements of space-based applications during creation of a functional prototype.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the Missile Defense Agency to support its research into solutions for space applications of machine vision,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI is a leader in research and development for optical systems, machine vision, autonomy, human-machine interfaces, and robotic inspection. IAI develops AI/ML-based products and customized solutions to address government and industry needs in application areas such as real-time image stabilization, target detection and tracking, supervised semi-autonomy, and intuitive remote operation of robotic systems.
