ZE Government Solutions Receives AFWERX Contract to Develop AI-Powered Threat Detection Capability

AFWERX has awarded ZE Government Solutions a Small Business Innovation Research Phase I contract to produce a drone-based indoor threat detection system. The solution is meant to enable situational awareness and indoor threat response by combining artificial intelligence-powered object detection video analytics technology with confined space unmanned aerial systems.

ZEGS is the federal government-focused subsidiary of ZeroEyes, the developer of an AI-based gun detection platform with a Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act designation.

Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes, explained that UAS platforms capable of AI-powered detection can deliver intelligence before incidents occur and enhance decision-making, ZEGS said.

ZeroEyes has had business with the U.S. Air Force in recent years. In 2022, AFWERX awarded the company a $1.2 million direct-to-phase-two SBIR grant to equip unmanned ground systems at Minot Air Force Base with gun detection capabilities.

Earlier, ZeroEyes secured a potential three-year contract to install its DeepZero weapons detection platform at Tyndall Air Force Base. The company was selected after participating in an AFWERX competition.
