HERNDON, Va. Geospark Analytics, company specialzing in developing applied artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for risk and threat intelligence, won a Special Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) AFWERX — a community of Air Force innovators who strive to connect Airmen to solutions across the force.

This is the fourth SBIR award for Geospark Analytics' Hyperion cloud-based platform that is designed to provide analysts and operators situational awareness and an AI-driven forecast of political, economic, and social risk across the globe.

With this contract in place, Geospark Analytics will aim to extend the Hyperion mobile application with collaboration capabilities intended to streamline the sharing of threat information and analysis between flight crews and Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Operational Support (OS) units.

The Hyperion mobile application, with enhanced collaboration capabilities, will also be made available to Geospark Analytics' commercial operations and travel security clients, as well as those performing logistics and supply chain resiliency planning.
