The prime is set to supply the US government with a suite of AI tools and a new data labelling service to support its national security missions.
BAE Systems has announced it is rolling out a suite of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities and a new Data Labelling as a Service (DLaaS) offering on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for GovCloud — a platform used by US government agencies.
The AI tools are designed to help analysts sift through large quantities of data, signals and imagery.
“Those on the front lines protecting our nation need the latest AI-enhanced information technology and advanced analytics to enable data-driven decision-making,” Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business, said.
“Our agile and accelerated go-to-market strategy enables our US government customers to rapidly scale the employment of AI across a wide array of missions.”
According to BAE, the tools would help accelerate the rapid hosting of additional capabilities developed by the prime or its partners, while also enabling customers to more speedily acquire and leverage AI capabilities aligned to the volume and velocity data scientists need to operate.
“AWS is committed to providing our government customers with the most innovative, efficient, and effective AI solutions,” Dave Levy, vice president for US government, non-profit and healthcare businesses for AWS, said.
“By making BAE Systems’ AI capabilities available on AWS Marketplace for GovCloud (US), government customers have increased access to on-demand, scalable data analysis to support their missions.”
Meanwhile, BAE Systems’ DLaaS would deliver on-demand data labelling for training AI/ML algorithms for mission use cases.
“The AWS Marketplace is an essential element of our AI/ML transition framework to help our customers facilitate the adoption of emerging technologies from across BAE Systems and select partners,” Dr Don Widener, director of BAE Systems’ Advanced Analytics Lab, said.
