IAI Awarded NASA Contract to Develop Deep Learning Subsystems for High Performance Space Computing Platforms

ROCKVILLE, Md.—August 31, 2020Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by NASA to develop a coprocessors subsystem for high performance space computing (HPSC) applications.

In this contract, IAI will develop hardware, software, and development toolkits to support space-deployable mission systems. The integrated HPSC-compatible coprocessor will be used in future NASA missions to support vision-based algorithms for extreme-terrain landing missions, model-based reasoning algorithms for vehicle-health management systems, high-rate instrument data processing algorithms for radars, and autonomous mission planning algorithms. The solution will also be used for non-NASA applications including embedded computer vision systems for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), remote sensing, satellite imaging, self-driving cars, robots, and assistive devices.

“IAI is grateful to support NASA’s efforts to improve its computing capabilities for future space missions,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

IAI deploys deep learning directly on embedded systems to enable advanced capabilities in fieldable packages. To simplify the challenges of packaging custom models with embedded platforms, IAI develops tools that transform trained models into code. Merging cutting-edge AI with custom-designed or COTS systems allows IAI to efficiently solve complex operational problems.
