Edgybees has been awarded multiple contracts by AFWERX, an innovation program within the US Air Force, to provide its computer vision technology to the US Air Force in the form of its augmented reality (AR) software solution, Argus, to bolster situational awareness in complex operational scenarios.
Among the contracts awarded is the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase-2 contract, a competitive awards-based program that enables small businesses to explore their technological potential within the defense sector and beyond.
“Leveraging our augmented reality software platform, the US Air Force will be able to demystify on-the-ground realities, creating more precise decision-making in training and operations,” said Adam Kaplan, CEO and co-founder of Edgybees.
Edgybees’ Argus solution will provide commanders detailed insight into operational environments by augmenting live video footage with layers of precise, real-time, geospatial information. Edgybees’ solution will facilitate situational awareness, efficient planning and clear communication for teams on the ground and in the air.
