We’re excited by the opportunity to bring our American-made computer vision solutions to Air Force bases where it can make a difference in protecting our military
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) May 01, 2019
Trueface has been accepted into the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program by AFWERX, who is leading the initiative to foster innovation and accelerate partnerships between the Air Force and businesses working at the cutting edge of technology. The stated goal of AFWERX is “to cut costs while creating a conduit between industry, academia and the Air Force to speed development and testing of software and materials prototypes.”
Trueface believes the Air Force can benefit from its facial recognition and threat detection technologies, bolstering security at air bases throughout the world. Two officers have already publicly described how facial recognition technology would be advantageous, reducing the cognitive workload of base security forces as they process and monitor individuals at entry points and perimeters.
'AFRL and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research process in an attempt to speed up the experience, broaden the pool of potential applicants and decrease bureaucratic overhead. Beginning in SBIR 18.2, and now in 19.1, the Air Force has begun offering 'Special' SBIR topics that are faster, leaner and open to a broader range of innovations.'
“We’re excited by the opportunity to bring our American-made computer vision solutions to Air Force bases where it can make a difference in protecting our military,” said Shaun Moore, CEO of Trueface.
