Boeing, SparkCognition Seek to Introduce AI-Based Drone Airspace Mgmt Software via Joint Venture - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBoeing and SparkCognition intend to form a new joint venture that will develop software platforms designed to integrate autonomous cargo vehicles and other unmanned aircraft systems into the global airspace.

Amir Husain, founder and CEO of SparkCognition, will serve as CEO of Austin, Texas-based SkyGrid that will help clients perform emergency response, industrial inspections and package delivery missions using drones, Boeing said Tuesday.

SkyGrid will use artificial intelligence-based dynamic traffic routing, cybersecurity, data analytics and blockchain technologies to develop software meant for airspace management.

Husain said the joint venture will leverage blockchain, AI and security technology to deliver technological platforms in support of the urban air mobility sector.

Boeing's venture arm HorizonX made an investment in SparkCognition in June 2017 to help the latter develop new tech offerings based on AI and machine learning.
