USAF selects Geospark Analytics to develop Hyperion platform

HERNDON, Va. U.S. Air Force officials selected Geospark Analytics to continue development of its Hyperion's threat and risk assessment APIs for integration into Command, Control, Communication, Intelligence, and Networks (C3I&N) systems.

Hyperion is a cloud-based platform designed to provide analysts and operators situational awareness of political, economic and social risk at country, region, and city levels.

Geospark Analytics was one of 51 small businesses awarded a contract during the inaugural U.S. Air Force Pitch Day held in Time Square, New York City. The Pitch Day program provides a fast track for innovative companies to work with the Air Force. More than 400 companies throughout the country submitted applications to participate in the Pitch Day program to compete for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funding.

Incorporating Hyperion's APIs into C3I&N systems will increase the global, regional, and local operational understanding for the Air Force, officials say The solution utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms that automate risk and threat intelligence forecasts.

Using data from news, social media, satellites, and other sources, Hyperion's applied machine learning (ML) models are continually assessing risk and activity at the global, country, region, and city levels in near real-time. Hyperion's AI analyzes the content of data feeds, calculates stability, makes forecasts, and builds summaries to display and forecast global events that impact stability, threat, activity, and risk levels.
