Today Edgybees, the leading provider of collaborative visual intelligence technology, announced that it has been awarded multiple contracts by AFWERX, an innovation program within the US Air Force, to provide its innovative computer vision technology to the US Air Force in the form of its augmented reality (AR) software solution, Argus, to bolster situational awareness in complex operational scenarios.
Among the contracts awarded is the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase-2 contract, a competitive awards-based program that enables small businesses to explore their technological potential within the defense sector and beyond.
“We look forward to taking strides together with AFWERX to seamlessly integrate Edgybees’ visual intelligence technology into the defense ecosystem,” said Adam Kaplan, CEO and co-founder of Edgybees. “Leveraging our augmented reality software platform, the US Air Force will be able to demystify on-the-ground realities, creating more precise decision-making in training and operations.”
Edgybees’ Argus solution will provide commanders detailed insight into operational environments by augmenting live video footage with layers of precise, real-time, geospatial information. Edgybees’ solution will facilitate unprecedented situational awareness, efficient planning and clear communication for teams on the ground and in the air.
