ROCKVILLE, Md.—May 26, 2020—Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army to develop technology for threat detection using passive sensors and cameras.
In this contract, IAI will design algorithms to detect and recognize threats, such as a person carrying a weapon, from live surveillance video. This technology can provide earlier notification to warfighters on the battlefield and even support crime prevention. The algorithms will be capable of distinguishing armed individuals from non-threats in both urban and natural scenarios. The algorithms will identify threats from a variety of soldier-and-vehicle-mounted sensors including body cameras and infrared (IR) sensors.
“IAI recognizes the importance of threat identification on the battlefield and is proud to support the U.S. Army’s efforts in this area,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
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, and natural language processing.
