CSI Wins Follow-On Contract to Enhance Automated Pallet Planning Technology for Aerial Port of the Future

Cougaar Software, Inc. (CSI), an innovative technology company in the Washington DC area specializing in artificial intelligence (AI) and distributed intelligent agent solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a six-month subcontract to work with Battelle under the Defense Technical Information Center’s Information Analysis Center Multiple Award Contract (IAC MAC) to support the US Air Force’s Aerial Port of the Future.

Congruency Engine for Rapid Baseline & Effective Readiness of Unified Services (CERBERUS) is being developed as part of the “Aerial Port of the Future” initiative. This award seeks to extend and commercialize the previous SBIR Phase II effort into the CERBERUS platform technology by revolutionizing how the Air Force logistics and supply chain system processes, manages, tracks, and moves essential assets from origin to the point of need. CERBERUS will assist the Air Mobility Command (AMC) in their efforts to load cargo in a manner that improves the efficiency of aerial port cargo operations through optimal loading configurations using CSI’s load planning technologies, AI algorithms for spatial reasoning, as well as several advanced planning technologies.

CSI leverages advanced cognitive computing and automation concepts as well as intelligent agent technologies to provide next-generation planning, decision support, and optimization systems for military and commercial customers. These solutions are built on CSI’s state-of-the-art AI platform, called ActiveEdge®, a distributed intelligent cognitive agent development framework based on the DARPA Cognitive Agent Architecture (Cougaar) technology. CSI’s cognitive computing technology enables users to understand complex situations and provides intelligent, automated deep reasoning over massive amounts of data to make better decisions, quicker and with higher confidence.
