The US Air Force (USAF) has awarded a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to New York City-headquartered business Intelligent Artifacts.

Under the contract, Intelligent Artifacts will perform research and development (R&D) on a sensor fusion solution.

The R&D effort is to help the USAF fulfil the needs of critical command and control, battle management, and communications (C2BMC) mission in various domains.

Intelligent Artifacts COO and SBIR lead Mark Mackowiak said: “Lags in data acquisition, fusion, analytics, and distribution can disrupt decision-making processes and ultimately lead to fratricide, loss of target, and civilian casualties.

“There is a need for our explainable, ‘pattern of life’ real-time learning AI solution to provide direct system feedback for better battlespace management and improved tactical decision-making.”

The firm has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) software solution that is completely explainable and interpretable.

Under Phase I, the company will formulate its autonomous information processing capabilities and demonstrate how explainable AI can be used for autonomous collaboration to support commandONE application layer architecture.

Intelligent Artifacts founder and CTO Sevak Avakians said: “Our fully explainable and interpretable AI software solution provides trustworthy, real-time predictions so that decision-makers both in and outside of the battlespace are working with immediate actionable information presented in a user-friendly format.”

In July, the US Air Force’s AFWERX awarded a Phase II SBIR contract to Armaments Research Company (ARC).
