Booz Allen Hamilton has entered a letter agreement to support the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Artificial Intelligence Center’s (JAIC) cybersecurity National Mission Initiative (NMI).

The agreement was signed under Booz Allen’s joint venture partner agreement with the US Department of Commerce’s National Technical Information Service (NTIS).

The new project is intended to provide artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled solutions for cybersecurity.

Under the project, Booz Allen will provide cyber sense-making, with emphasis on user activity monitoring, network event detection, and cyber data engineering planning.

The team will focus on the integration of components and conducting AI development.

Work will also include the establishment of a Development Operations (DevOps) pipeline to ensure quick delivery of AI capabilities into DoD mission environments.

Booz Allen senior vice-president Steve Escaravage said: “Artificial intelligence will fundamentally change how the US Government protects our national interests and delivers services to citizens.

“We’re hearing from clients daily who are keen to explore how AI can help support their missions. Booz Allen has been a first mover in this space, strategically investing in building AI solutions and an industry-leading team, seasoned at navigating the complexities of operationalising AI at scale, from identifying important ethical considerations to tackling technical hurdles.”

The company will work jointly with NTIS to provide data services to federal agencies.

Booz Allen is working on more than 60 active projects to help the US Government in the adoption of mission-oriented AI at scale.
