The event, Digital Horizon, aimed to advance the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command's efforts to integrate new unmanned technologies and artificial intelligence while establishing the world's first unmanned surface vessel fleet by the end of summer 2023.
BigBear.ai showcased its machine learning-powered decision support solution, Ursa Minor, which identifies potential threats using ML-augmented algorithms and analytics. Ursa Minor conflates millions of data points to provide situational awareness, predictive forecasts, and computer vision capabilities to analysts and decision-makers in real time.
"Our participation at Digital Horizon shows we are truly a leading provider of AI solutions to our nation's most critical challenges," said Mandy Long, CEO of BigBear.ai. "This opportunity has allowed us to invest, research and develop new and cutting-edge technologies that will ultimately impact autonomous platforms across national and international security."
Partnering with Accenture Federal Services, BigBear.ai employed data integration and artificial intelligence systems during the event. Seventeen other industry partners brought fifteen different types of unmanned systems to the event.
"We were thrilled to be contracted by Task Force 59 and showcase our advanced AI-based forecasting and computer vision capabilities at the tactical edge alongside such talented partners," said Tony Barrett, President and General Manager of Federal Markets at BigBear.ai. "BigBear.ai and Accenture Federal Services were the two companies out of 18 who were selected to bring AI solutions to the exercise."
As Digital Horizon concluded on December 15, BigBear.ai looks forward to participating in the next exercise in Jordan in March 2023.
