Orbital Insight is partnering with Booz Allen to deploy Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms on its new software platform, Modzy. The U.S. executive branch and the Department of Defense (DoD) have called for the rapid adoption of AI in order to “protect service members, safeguard U.S. citizens, defend allies and partners, and improve the affordability, effectiveness, and speed of our operations.” Orbital Insight and Booz Allen aim to support the intelligence community — including the NGA, NRO, and DIA — in this mission with world-class geospatial analytics.

Orbital Insight’s geospatial capabilities were selected among Machine Learning (ML) technologies to be made available in Modzy, whose mission is to put AI to work through trusted models and a secure, scalable platform. Modzy aims to accelerate AI adoption, and the platform will be available for the U.S. federal government and early access program participants in mid-2020.

“Orbital Insight is proud to join Booz Allen and other tech companies in the creation of an entirely new way for the government to access the best AI technology available in the market.” said Dr. James Crawford CEO of Orbital Insight. “We are dedicated to geospatial intelligence and are glad to expand Modzy in that domain.”
