BlackSky wins JAIC contract
On June 21, Herndon, VA-based BlackSky Technologies Inc. announced that it was awarded a basic order agreement from the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) to create and optimize data sets for use in DoD AI models and applications. The JAIC agreement has a ceiling value of $241 million over five years.
“With demonstrated AI expertise in space-based dynamic monitoring, this agreement will open even more doors for BlackSky to contribute its unique value to the diverse national security challenges faced by the wider DoD community,” said Patrick O’Neil, BlackSky chief innovation officer.
“From automatically tasking satellites to the low-latency delivery and analysis of high-frequency geospatial imagery and non-imagery data, our unique, data-rich platform brings a strong source of core AI-enabled end-to-end capabilities to the DoD’s mission sets,” said O’Neil.
The JAIC, Defense Digital Service, and Office of Advancing Analytics were merged into a single organization called the Office of the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Officer.
