Our Solution

At Davidson, we’re all about Accelerating Excellence…so we’ve built a tool which drastically increases the relevancy and timeliness of a commander’s situational awareness, and ultimately, mission success.

Introducing, Apollo Vision – defining the operational environment and assisting imagery and geospatial analysts in answering commanders’ Priority Intelligence Requirements.

Apollo Vision streamlines the process by leveraging Natural Language Processing techniques to understand analyst requests, and fine-tuned Computer Vision models to search through imagery and identify targets of interest.

Apollo Vision is wrapped in a chat bot app to provide analysts with an easy-to-use application that would be added to analyst workstations to integrate into current workflows.

While other approaches may focus on past textual reports or past imagery separately to assist the analyst, the combination of the two provides more meaningful, actionable intelligence. The combination of textual reporting and imagery is critical to ensuring high-quality situational awareness for the commander.

Apollo Vision assists imagery and geospatial analysts by automating large portions of the Intelligence Cycle process. With Apollo Vision, analysts will be able to respond to EEIs faster, spend more time on complicated questions, and provide unparalleled situational awareness to their commanders.
