Meet Our Team

We Connect Mission Understanding with Cutting Edge Computer Vision and AI

We are a team of leaders in Silicon Valley technology and Washington D.C. national security who are committed to the unified vision of making the world a better place.

We value taking risks with integrity, being grounded in humility, and persisting against all odds.

We delight in a clever exchange of words and lively exchange of ideas.

We strive to break boundaries and join the visionaries of yesterday that changed the way we interact with the world today.
