Pangiam Receives Contract to Develop AI-Powered Inspection Tool to Support CBP Mission
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is turning to artificial intelligence to improve how it conducts customs and border protection operations.
On Thursday, CBP awarded trade and travel technology firm Pangiam a prime contract to develop and roll out the Anomaly Detection Algorithms initiative. The deal will see Pangiam and West Virginia University collaborate on using AI, computer vision and machine learning to support critical border and national security operations, Pangiam said.
The agency will use the Pangiam Bridge, an AI tool allowing customs officials to automate portions of the inspection process for baggage, conveyances and containers.
Pangiam Chief Growth Officer Brian Lodwig said the ADA project shows the government can accelerate the integration of emerging technologies to positively impact real-world scenarios.
The collaboration is not the first effort for the agency to improve its processes. It has launched an information technology strategy to embrace a zero trust cybersecurity model to enhance user experience while streamlining security management.
