Plus3 IT Secures Spot on JAIC’s $241M AI Readiness Program
Plus3 IT Systems, a small disadvantaged business, announced that it was selected to support the Department of Defense’s $241 million artificial intelligence data readiness effort.
On its website, JAIC said that having “AI-ready” data is a key determinant for the success of the military’s AI projects. The DRAID program is aimed at helping the Pentagon make the most out of its existing data by leveraging the capabilities of the U.S. industry.
DRAID is a full and open multi-award agreement and is one of JAIC’s five acquisition vehicles, each tackling a different AI-related challenge.
Plus3 IT said that it will support the DOD’s efforts to generate, manage or secure the data sets it uses for AI modeling, application development, testing, certification and operation.
Christopher Isaacs, co-founder and chief technology officer of Plus3 IT, said that the BOA will allow the company to offer capabilities to a wide range of DOD components, drive mission efficiencies and enable cloud-based AI.
Isaacs added that Plus3 IT supports the defense and intelligence communities by providing data catalogs, data management frameworks, data governance solutions, AI-assisted analytics support and other capabilities.
Founded in 2015, Plus3 IT Systems offers services in cloud adoption, cloud security, application development, DevSecOps and others.
The DOD recently also awarded a DRAID BOA to data science small business Striveworks. The company said it will support JAIC in areas like data science, data engineering, data architecture, software development and cloud integration.
