Illuminate wins AFRL contract

The U.S. Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) awarded Herndon, VA-based Illuminate Mission Solutions, an Illuminate Business Unit, in partnership with Infoscitex,  a new contract replacing the AFRL’s Sensor Data Management System (SDMS). Illuminate will provide ARFL’s Sensing Effects Branch with a Discovery and Retrieval capability through a modular architecture that addresses end-to-end enterprise sensor data workflows and offers a sound foundation for next-generation analytic processes.

“We understand the AFRL’s Research Development Test and Evaluation programs require rapid data discovery, built-in resiliency, integration, and maximized scalability for global operations,” said Mike Limcaco, Illuminate CTO. “Our solution will be interoperable with existing COTS/GOTS and include a hybrid cloud architecture leveraging on-prem hardware while remaining cloud agnostic.”

Illuminate will provide its big data software platform solution, Vigilance, to bring a new modern, scalable and modular Sensor Data as a Service (SDaaS) capability for AFRL users. Team Illuminate’s deep knowledge of data management and cutting-edge work in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) provide resilient sensing and actionable insight to the nation’s airmen.
