ZE Government Solutions (ZEGS) has been selected by AFWERX – a US Air Force program – for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I contract.

According to the company, the contract is focused on edge deployment of AI to investigate its potential to fill capability gaps in the Department of the Air Force (DAF).

Video analytics

The company says that its AI-based object detection video analytics will be added to edge devices such as LTE-enabled body cameras.

This will enhance the safety of defenders during traffic stops or other engagements on or around installations worldwide, proactively providing real-time situational awareness in tense situations.

Situational awareness

“Throughout my military career, I had to enter countless dangerous situations with minimal information about my surroundings,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and Co-Founder of ZeroEyes.

“By deploying our AI-based object detection on edge devices, we will be able to provide situational awareness and an added layer of security to the brave men and women dedicated to protecting our country.”

The views expressed do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Department of the Air Force, the Department of Defense or the US government.
