IDenTV Awarded SBIR Phase II Contract by U.S. Air Force

Sponsored by Businesswire

IDenTV, a developer of advanced computer vision technology, today
announced that it has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research
Phase II contract by the U.S. Air Force via their AFWERX innovation
program. The contract will support adaptation of IDenTV’s artificial
intelligence (AI)-based, advanced video analytics platform, named
VideoJuicer, to meet Air Force requirements, and its integration into
the U.S. Intelligence Services’ Commercial Cloud Services (C2S)
environment. The 15-month contract, sponsored by Twenty-Fifth Air Force
(25th AF), follows a successful Phase I feasibility study
IDenTV conducted under the AFWERX/AFRL Small Business Innovation
Research (SBIR) initiative. Twenty-Fifth Air Force is the Air Force’s
primary Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance organization
supporting Air, Space, and Cyber warfighting capabilities.

In Phase II, IDenTV is teaming with RAZ Logic to collaborate and
integrate with the Air Force to gather requirements for a variety of
problem sets. The target is to provide intelligence analysts with
readily available capabilities such as facial recognition; detection of
objects, weapons, activities, and illicit content including extremist
speech; and highly accurate Automatic Speech Recognition and Machine
Translation and transcription. The ultimate goal of this project is for
25th AF analysts to gain advantages using VideoJuicer’s
capabilities to turn enormous volumes of data into actionable insights
and expedite intelligence dissemination to the war-fighter. Dr. Denis
Delaney, 25 AF Advanced Programs Operations, believes the partnership of
IDenTV and 25 AF will provide the best return possible on the AFWERX
investment and “provide the AF with computer vision tools to enable
analysts to accomplish twice as much work in half the time with a
high-level of confidence and accuracy.”

IDenTV’s Federal Project manager Nikki Maquindang noted that “We are
honored to be awarded the opportunity to move on to Phase II of this
important SBIR initiative, which has significant potential to enhance
intelligence activities for the Twenty-Fifth Air Force. Such a highly
innovative technology as computer vision holds great promise for
strengthening national security, providing the unprecedented ability to
quickly and accurately extract and analyze large volumes of digitized
images and sounds. We’re thrilled that the Twenty-Fifth Air Force has
chosen VideoJuicer for further research on how this leading-edge
technology can support its critical intelligence mission.”
