Adarga has won a multimillion-pound contract to deliver its advanced artificial intelligence (AI)-powered Knowledge Platform to The British Army.

The AI platform will be deployed by the army for an extended Capability Concept Demonstrator.

It is the first live deployment of AI into the field to improve the use of information on a daily basis and drive effective decision-making.

Adarga’s AI platform, which incorporates advanced data science technology, helps identify mission-critical insights and hidden data connections within seconds.

The company said it is providing the technology to improve the ‘intellectual agility and speed of action’ of the British Army.

Adarga’s Knowledge Platform creates an interconnected digital picture, collecting complex links between crucial pieces of information.

The platform is helping the British Army to prioritise information requirements, apply learning and make better decisions.

Adarga CEO Robert Bassett Cross said: “In today’s competitive and uncertain world, data and information are more of a strategic asset than ever before. Making sense of and understanding all of this available information underpins everything the British Army does and is vital to the success or failure of operations.

“Harnessing AI technology provides army users with a powerful capability to overcome the challenges of more traditional time and knowledge-intensive methods of enabling understanding and highlights the army’s innovative approach and ambition to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving operating environment.

“Working closely with our partners in the Field Army, the deployment of Adarga’s AI platform has been pivotal in deciphering vast quantities of complex data at speed and scale, providing the context, insight and foresight required to drive effective decision making.”
