Bae Systems Offers Groundbreaking Ai on the Amazon Web Services Marketplace for Govcloud (Us).

BAE Systems, Inc | February 09, 2021

BAE Systems announced today it is offering a suite of groundbreaking man-made consciousness capabilities and another information naming service offering on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for GovCloud (US) to support basic public security missions. As a trailblazer in man-made brainpower (AI), AI (ML), and information science services, the organization is making accessible to U.S. government agencies a suite of AI tools to assist analysts with sifting quantities of information, signals, and symbolism. Also, the organization is launching its Data Labeling as a Service (DLaaS) on the AWS Marketplace for GovCloud (US) to support those customers seeking a service to perform information planning applying structured information methodologies, automation, and AI tools.

“Those on the front lines protecting our nation need the latest AI-enhanced information technology and advanced analytics to enable data-driven decision-making,” said Peder Jungck, Vice President and General Manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business. “Our agile and accelerated go-to-market strategy enables our U.S. government customers to rapidly scale the employment of AI across a wide array of missions.”

BAE Systems built up this first suite of inventive AI products as an outgrowth of the organization's work on research and improvement programs across the U.S. Division of Defense. Offering these capabilities on the AWS Marketplace for GovCloud (US) forms the foundation expected to quicken the fast hosting of extra capabilities created by BAE Systems or its partners. The commercial center also affords customers a fast method to acquire and use AI capabilities adjusted to the volume and speed information scientists need to work.

“AWS is committed to providing our government customers with the most innovative, efficient, and effective AI solutions,” said Dave Levy, Vice President for U.S. Government, Nonprofit and Healthcare Businesses for AWS. “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.”

Creating information pipelines to use new AI capabilities and applying the proper information marking can be trying for government agencies to establish at scale or costly to do at small scale. As a result, to supplement these ability offerings, BAE Systems is also offering Data Labeling as a Service (DLaaS), which delivers on-request information marking for preparing 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,” said Dr. Don Widener, Director of BAE Systems’ Advanced Analytics Lab. “We’re accelerating technologies from the lab to operations and making our software available via the AWS Marketplace to assist our government customer’s developers and data scientists in meeting their mission needs.”

Healthy Together and Florida Department of Health Win at ATARC's GITEC Emerging Technology Awards

Healthy Together | December 14, 2022

On December 6th, the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) awarded Healthy Together and the State of Florida's Department of Health (FDOH) with a Digital Experience Award at their 2022 GITEC Emerging Technology Award Ceremony in Washington, D.C. The annual ceremony recognizes government initiatives that have made significant contributions in the advancement and implementation of technology innovations. The Digital Experience Award spotlights government projects that promote exceptional citizen service experiences through the use of technology. ATARC nominates organizations that have radically improved the experience of government and pushed the boundaries to build customer-centric human connections in our digital world. "We are incredibly proud to have our partnership with FDOH recognized by ATARC. The Digital Experience Award is a powerful validation of the impact we were able to have and our mission to improve collective health and make government more efficient. We are excited to continue to innovate and modernize resident access to government services with our technology." -Jared Allgood, President of Healthy Together. While awardees typically come from federal agencies, FDOH was selected because of the widespread success of its roll-out of the Healthy Together mobile platform in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Other 2022 winners include NASA, the Department of Veterans Affairs, ATF, GSA, the U.S. Army and the Marine Forces Cyber Command. About the Project: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Florida Department of Health, Division of Disease Control engaged Healthy Together and its cloud-based SaaS Disease Management Platform to support case investigators, deliver timely test results to residents, and automate case investigation processes. With a population of over 21M residents, manual processes at labs and testing providers coupled with heavy demand for testing created significant delays in the time to deliver diagnostic results. Due to the rising number of cases, FDOH sought solutions to scale the response to resident and departmental needs. The Florida Department of Health partnered with Healthy Together to deploy a case management system and mobile application to deliver real-time test results to residents. Through the application, FDOH was able to successfully deliver over 30M diagnostic results to state residents. As part of the deployment, Healthy Together built and implemented a self-serve, digital case interview based on CDC guidelines and FDOH standards to assist in case investigation. Over 90% of self-serve case interviews were completed within 1 hour of receipt of a positive test result, a staggering 10x increase in speed to deliver services with more contacts elicited than traditional manual methods. Data captured by the digital case interviews was fed to its auto-scaling AWS hosted case management software that automated data analysis, decreased manual processes and reduced the need for additional hiring. Over the course of the partnership, more than 50% of Florida households utilized Healthy Together's services. Healthy Together has since partnered to help additional states, counties, and tribes to scale and automate other government processes such as Medicaid, SNAP and TANF eligibility, enrollment, & renewal, WIC program management, and behavioral health systems. About Healthy Together: Healthy Together is a health technology company that builds SaaS technology for government, education and enterprise. Their technology aids in areas such as disease surveillance, behavioral health management and benefit enrollment for programs like Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and WIC. Healthy Together's mobile application has reached #1 in the App Store Health & Fitness category and has over 225k reviews on the App Store and Play Store with a 4.9/5 star rating.

REI Systems | January 31, 2023

On January 30, 2023, REI Systems announced that it would deploy GovGrants®, a full-lifecycle grants management SaaS product, for the US Department of Treasury IAF (Inter-American Foundation). IAF works with entrepreneurs, innovators, and local leaders in underserved Caribbean and Latin America areas to help them build more peaceful, prosperous, and democratic communities.

In addition, the solution is currently listed on the GSA MAS Information Technology contract, ensuring easy procurement and deployment as a software-as-a-service solution by any federal agency.
