Public Profile

Intelligent Automation, Inc. ("IAI") is longtime SBIR-involved firm though with a new management team now in place. In August 2019, it was announced that BlueHalo -- a provider of advanced engineering solutions and technology to the national security community - had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Intelligent Automation, Inc. As a firm, Intelligent Automation had more recently been continuing the IAI tradition of technology R&D addressing technological requirements of both federal government and commercial clients. Products have include CybelePro, an intelligent agent framework; DCF Pro, a distributed robotics platform; Argus, an electronic fence based asset protection solution; KTG, an air traffic target generator; Gradations, a Web-based intelligent tutor; Wirecheck, a wire fault diagnosis tool; RFNest, a wireless network simulation tool; Proteus, a sensor management client; and GISTe, an open source GIS tool. The company also provides products forum and Wiki; and consulting, and engineering and information technology services. Technologies include two-and three-dimensional forensics imaging equipment for matching bullets, platforms and tools for the development of agent-based systems, perimeter security systems, scheduling systems for changing environments, tools for fault diagnosis and prognosis in complex systems, ad hoc mobile network protocols, and automated tutoring systems for literacy training. The company develops sensors, signals, and systems, such as forensic technology, robotics and electromechanical systems, sensing and communication, signal processing, and health capabilities; distributed intelligent systems, including multi-agent systems and architectures, air traffic management, networks and security, and data mining and social media analytics; and education and training technology solutions, which include skills training, situational awareness, standards integration, and intelligent tutoring. In some contrast but with obvius overlap, as a company BlueHalo has been purpose-built to provide industry-leading capabilities in the domains of Space Superiority and Directed Energy, Air and Missile Defense and C4ISR, and Cyber and Intelligence offering engineering sevices to develop, transition, and field next-generation capabilities to solve the most complex challenges of the client's critical missions. It would appear lkely that the acquired firm will remain SBIR-elgile and involved.
