Ditto has won a contract worth up to $950 million from the US Air Force, allowing Ditto’s Intelligent Edge Platform to develop and power the USAF’s Advanced Battlefield Management System (ABMS).
ABMS uses technology innovation to rapidly collect, analyze, and share information and make decisions in real-time, and even in environments where there is no network connectivity, or the network has been jammed or degraded.
This contract is part of a multiple award multi-level security effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms, according to a statement from the USAF.
Ditto will incorporate its Intelligent Edge Platform into US Air Force systems, enabling real-time mission feedback loops and reducing processing time between system/mission data updates.
Ditto is a peer-to-peer (P2P) database that allows apps to sync. The Ditto Intelligent Edge Platform enables nearly any type of edge computing system to share data real-time in a mesh, and without a central server or hardware, processing information at the edge.
Adam Fish, co-founder and CEO of Ditto, said: “The contract with USAF signifies the importance of Ditto’s technology for any industry or enterprise where real-time and seamless data sync is imperative.”
Ditto recently took part in the Joint Pacific Multinational Readiness Center (JPMRC) Army exercise at Ft. Greely in Alaska where Ditto’s data sync was tested in the field with USAF Tactical Air Control Parties (TACPs).
Ditto recently secured $9 million in seed funding from True Ventures and Amity Ventures. Ditto works with enterprise customers across industries, including aviation point-of-sale, emergency work, retail, hospitality, and entertainment.
In addition to the US Air Force, Ditto’s customers include Japan Airlines, Etihad Airways, and HugoApp.
