San Diego, Calif. – October 22, 2021 – ObjectSecurity, The Security Automation Company, today announced that it has been selected for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract from the US Army. As stated in the original solicitation entitled, “Mission Based Forecasting Logistics Enterprise Enhancement Platform”, the Phase I SBIR effort entitled, “Mission Based Forecasting Logistics Enterprise Enhancement Platform (MBF-LEEP)” , the focus of the effort is “to develop a software solution that provides an updated UI/UX for tactical ERP systems, integrates the ERP data set to offer in depth data analytics, provides AI/ML analysis capabilities, and/or delivers Mission Based Forecasting (MBF) for Commanders to support operational planning requirements”. ObjectSecurity will “design proof of concept solution that updates and improves the tactical ERP UI/UX and integrates ERP data to provide analytics and predictions” .
The award of this Phase I SBIR award is an important milestone for ObjectSecurity and underscores the strength of our science innovation that underwent rigorous peer review. This award in particular underscores the relevance and quality of our SCRAMS/easySCRAMS  supply chain risk analysis product, which itself was commercialized out of a prior SBIR and an AFWERX Challenge. This award allows us to prioritize research efforts into needed features for the Army and others,” said Ulrich Lang, CEO of ObjectSecurity. “SBIR contracts allow us to research and develop advanced concepts that feed into rapid product development, enabling us to commercialize next-generation innovative products that will bring tremendous value to the US Army and our customers across all industries. Most of our solutions leverage state-of-the art approaches such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML). We are committed to leading this initiative with the Army to protect the soldier’s systems from adversaries by delivering advanced next-generation technology solutions.”
The federally-funded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) / Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in research and development that has significant potential for commercialization of innovative products, and their eventual transition into the US Army’s programs. The program’s chief role is to bridge the gap between the performance of basic science and the commercialization of resulting innovations.
