(Seattle, WA) – Stabilitas Intelligence Communications Inc., a developer of AI powered tools for the security industry, has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II award of $750,000. This will serve to support the development of the company’s AI powered security platform. Stabilitas provides tools that read and aggregate open source information, making it easier to find and summarize intelligence in real-time. “With the use of AI, we are seeking to fundamentally change how organizations solve security challenges and put greater emphasis on user experience and the power of community,” said CEO, Greg Adams. “We know we’re on the cutting edge for the security industry, and it’s great to see the National Science Foundation award reflect that.”
Who is Stabilitas?
Stabilitas was founded in 2014 by US Army veterans and Harvard Business School Alums, Greg Adams and Chris Hurst. They set out to address security problems and shortcomings they found during their service. “We had used the military’s intelligence tools, but we didn’t think they were forward looking enough. Something was missing.” Aiming to improve data visualization capabilities for stakeholders, they began work on a tech platform for security professionals. Current Stabilitas customers range from small NGOs to global companies such as Ingersoll Rand and Home Depot. Stabilitas is a 2015 Techstars alumnus, was awarded a previous National Science Foundation grant, and a “Security’s Best” award for their product vision by ASIS International in 2015.
