LifeOmic's Precision Health Platform for Government Achieves FedRAMP Ready Status
LifeOmic, the creator of the LIFE mobile apps, Precision Wellness, and the Precision Health Cloud platform, which are used at major medical and cancer centers, announced today that its Precision Health Platform for Government had achieved the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Ready status (PHP-G). PHP-G is a cloud and mobile platform that aggregates data for storage, analytics, and the development of predictive models.

Today's healthcare IT systems do not democratize data, making research and discovery more difficult. The LifeOmic PHP-G cuts down these silos while drastically speeding a wide range of precision health and wellness use cases, including clinical trials and health research. LifeOmic can now provide its safe and endlessly scalable mobile-to-cloud solution to government agencies to combine multi-omics and clinical data, conduct research, engage in telehealth coaching, and expedite discovery due to FedRAMP Ready status.

The LifeOmic PHP-G was designed by the same team that built one of Amazon Web Services' most complex cloud applications (AWS). It was developed as a cloud-first model, employing the most secure and scalable design principles, such as a zero-trust security model and serverless computing. Customers of LifeOmic can use the PHP-G to store, combine, and analyze data using any set of tools. The platform complies with HIPAA, is HITRUST CSF Certified, GDPR compliant, and CCPA compliant.

FedRAMP is a US government-wide initiative that provides a consistent cloud security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring. FedRAMP compliance indicates that a cloud computing system has developed and documented a highly secure environment that has undergone a thorough and rigorous review. The FedRAMP Marketplace lists authorized cloud service providers.

PHP-G is a few biomedical firms offering FedRAMP Ready mobile, biomedical informatics, data management, and machine learning solutions.

Everlaw Moves to AWS GovCloud (US) to Give Even Greater Security to Federal Clients

Everlaw | September 15, 2021

Everlaw announced today the migration of its FedRAMP Authorized federal SaaS platform to Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US), making it one of the first cloud-native ediscovery, collaboration and document review solutions to meet these stringent U.S. government security requirements. Everlaw's platform, which achieved FedRAMP Authorization last year, is already one of the few elite technology providers used by U.S. government agencies for federal investigations and litigation. Now, on AWS GovCloud (US), Everlaw can maintain the integrity of its state-of-the-art, high-speed solution while protecting the most sensitive government information against cybersecurity threats. Providing a fast, highly secure and modern collaboration solution that meets the critical needs of government agencies is of the utmost importance to us. Our move to AWS GovCloud (US) allows our federal clients to confidently use our solution, knowing that their information is protected by the highest cloud security standards. Kevin Babcock, Director of Security Engineering at Everlaw The migration to AWS GovCloud (US) underlines Everlaw's commitment to best-in-class service and safety for federal clients. AWS GovCloud (US) allows Everlaw to better support federal export controls, compliance, and storage of highly sensitive data.

senseFly, an AgEagle Company, Named to Blue sUAS 2.0 List of Drone Suppliers by the U.S. Defense Innovation Unit

AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. | October 29, 2021

AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. , an industry-leading provider of full-stack drone, sensor and software solutions, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, senseFly, has been named to the Blue sUAS 2.0 list, published by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) earlier this month. The Blue sUAS 2.0 project follows the successful partnership between the U.S. Army and DIU on the Short Range Reconnaissance (SRR) program for small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), which started in 2019. DIU’s Blue sUAS project, now referred to as ‘1.0,’ followed the SRR program in August 2020 and made minor modifications to five final SRR candidate air vehicles and built integrated commercially-based ground control stations to create a standalone commercial/enterprise configuration available to the Department of Defense (DoD), as well as other U.S. government entities. The 2.0 project was subsequently created to increase the diversity, capability and affordability of UAS on DIU’s “Blue UAS Cleared List,” bringing a greater variety of UAS with a wide range of modalities, capabilities and price points. A secondary part of the project involves: 1) an effort to define a common standard across the DoD for UAS vendor onboarding; 2) the means to communicate that standard; and 3) a uniform process to assist authorized vendors in the procurement process. In March 2021, DIU sought proposals from UAS vendors and in the brief period the Request for Prototype Proposals was listed on its website, www.sam.gov, DIU received more than 100 responses. From this group, senseFly, along with ten other companies, were selected to participate in the Blue sUAS 2.0 program to prototype a new approval process, significantly increasing the variety of UAS capabilities available to all branches of the U.S. military. As part of the Blue sUAS 2.0 registration and qualification process, senseFly has completed two demonstrations for U.S. government officials of its highly ruggedized eBee TAC UAV, a hand-launched fixed wing tactical mapping drone solution that enables users in disconnected environments to execute complex mapping and scouting missions safely and efficiently. Weighing only 3.5 pounds, eBee TAC features a digital camouflage skin for increased stealth and can be rapidly deployed, from assembly to hand-launch, in three minutes by a single user. In late July 2021, an initial technical demonstration took place at Fort Hunter Liggett, the U.S. Army Reserve’s largest training installation, where senseFly’s eBee TAC underwent testing and evaluation of its system configuration, flight test profile and safety of flight procedures, coupled with the repeatability and reliability of flights and data capture. In mid-September 2021, the Company conducted a second demonstration at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado consisting of various flight demos of the eBee TAC for the purpose of testing and evaluating the system’s capabilities in adverse and high altitude environments. senseFly expects to complete the registration process prior to the end of this year. “Since their creation more than 50 years ago, drones have continued to evolve, becoming one of the main tools integrated into military and defense forces throughout the world. Through senseFly’s innovative eBee TAC, AgEagle believes our Company can become an important player in the UAS domestic industrial base for the U.S. and its allies, helping to ensure delivery of secure drone mapping and scouting solutions that the DoD and other government entities will come to depend on.” AgEagle CEO Brandon Torres-Declet About AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. AgEagle and its wholly owned subsidiaries are actively engaged in designing and delivering best-in-class drones, sensors and software that solve important problems for our customers. Founded in 2010, AgEagle was originally formed to pioneer proprietary, professional-grade, fixed winged drones and aerial imagery-based data collection and analytics solutions for the agriculture industry. Today, AgEagle is a leading provider of full stack drone solutions for customers worldwide in the energy, construction, agriculture, and government verticals.
