Air Force Selects Tamr to Accelerate New Aircraft Configuration Evaluations with Data Mastering Solutions
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tamr, Inc., the leader in data mastering solutions, today announced that it has been awarded a new five year $60 million contract ceiling from the U.S. Air Force SEEK EAGLE Office (AFSEO) to accelerate and automate the process of flight certification recommendations for new flight configurations.
AFSEO is responsible for verifying safe flight operating conditions for planes loaded with new stores (sensors, weapons, electronic warfare (EW) pods and a variety of other aeronautic devices) and new configurations. With more than 30 years of aircraft performance studies, AFSEO accumulated substantial amounts of data that can be leveraged in the evaluation process for new configurations. However, over time, this critical data has been dispersed and siloed, limiting AFSEO's ability to use it to certify new stores. AFSEO selected Tamr to mine the technical content in historical documents using their machine learning software and technical expertise to quickly identify relevant antecedents that can support the engineering decisions to protect pilots and aircraft as well as meet the evolving mission.
Flight safety depends on accurate, fast data analysis. Our goal is to leverage machine learning to quickly search and sift through more than 30 years of data to automatically make recommendations 'by analogy'. This recommendation would take weeks for an engineer to develop manually.
With Tamr, AFSEO can predict if a configuration is safe based on previously approved configurations.
This production award comes after successfully completing a 20-month prototype effort with the Defense Innovation Unit--the Department of Defense organization focused exclusively on fielding and scaling commercial technology across the U.S. military at commercial speed.
Webinar: Chief Data Officer of the U.S. Air Force SEEK EAGLE Office will address how the Air Force implemented machine learning to accelerate and automate the process of recommendations for new flight configurations. Date: August 24th, 2020. Register here.
