Accelerating Air Force Readiness with AI-Enabled Tool To Expedite Ingestion & Organization of Legacy Data for Aircraft Maintainers
‘GOLDRUSH’ digitization, framework, and ‘data lake’ will empower maintenance personnel to sort through and understand past and current maintenance data faster and more efficiently
Aptima, Inc., a trailblazer in leveraging artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to enhance mission readiness, announced today that it has received a $1.5 Million Air Force Direct to Phase II Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award to develop GOLDRUSH, a Guided Operational Logging of Digital Records and Understanding of System History. GOLDRUSH will be an AI-enabled rapid digitization system capable of converting large volumes of maintenance records from paper to digital, thereby allowing maintenance personnel to sort through and understand past and current maintenance data faster and more efficiently.
US military leadership is continually on the lookout for new tools, technologies, and procedures that can accelerate sustainment activities while reducing costs. Digital transformation is one major focus area that has been slowly integrated into sustainment operations, yet still requires much progress. In particular, efficient methods of digital conversion for legacy data records are needed along with digital tools for new record creation and maintenance.
In response to this challenge, Aptima will develop GOLDRUSH: Guided Operational Logging of Digital Records and Understanding of System History. GOLDRUSH will be a rapid digitization system capable of converting large volumes of maintenance records from paper to digital, thereby allowing users to sort through and understand maintenance data more easily. In doing so, GOLDRUSH will provide a framework and end-user workflow for creating and sustaining future digital records, while also enabling these legacy and future records to be utilized efficiently alongside each other. The key innovation underpinning GOLDRUSH will be a novel system framework and well-organized data lake that will allow faster and easier entry of new maintenance data than is currently possible, while using automated techniques based on artificial intelligence technology to expedite ingestion and organization of legacy data.
Aptima welcomes the adoption or merging of your technology with one or more of our SBIR Topics. We are eligible for SBIR Enhancement funding, as well as TACFI and STRATFI awards, all of which are sole source.
