Airship AI Starts Delivery of $10.9 Million US Government Contracts for Advanced Video and Sensor Management
Agency within the Department of Homeland Security to Utilize Company’s Edge IoT Appliance, Outpost AI
REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Airship AI Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: AISP) (“Airship AI” or the “Company”), a leader in AI-driven video, sensor, and data management surveillance solutions, today announced it has begun delivery of multiple firm fixed price contracts worth $10.9 million, awarded in September 2023 by an agency within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), for advanced integrated solutions supporting real-time intelligence collection operations along the United States’ borders, leveraging the Company’s edge IoT appliance, Outpost AI.
Outpost AI provides highly efficient edge analytic processing and secure data transmission via a small form factor edge compute device designed to run in the most rugged operational environments. Outpost AI leverages an on-board deep learning accelerator to structure and analyze significant amounts of data at the edge, in real-time, extracting actionable intelligence using a variety of hot-swappable, custom-trained inference engines. Once extracted, the encrypted data is seamlessly streamed to Airship AI’s back-end enterprise management platform Acropolis, for analysis and distribution.
Under the contracts, Outpost AI solutions will be utilized to support real-time intelligence collection operations along the United States’ borders, providing local high-definition recording with user defined low-bit rate video stream encoding, and on-board edge analytic capabilities for advanced object detection and recognition.
“These awards affirm Airship AI’s strategic vision of providing tailored solutions designed to meet exacting and rapidly evolving technical requirements for those on our nation’s front lines,” said Paul Allen, President of Airship AI. “Airship AI remains committed to working alongside those protecting the homeland to ensure they have the solutions they need, when they need them, where they need them.”
“Border security is rapidly modernizing in response to increased threat assessments and activity, with the global border security market size projected to grow to $68.2 billion by 2030, according to Fortune Business Insights. Border surveillance systems, advanced technologies, and other equipment to enhance border protection are being deployed to heighten security and decrease manpower. We believe our differentiated end-to-end solutions that capitalize on the rapidly growing use of AI to create efficiency, increase speed, reduce costs, and improve decision making, will provide long-term growth for Airship AI,” concluded Allen.
