An Indian tech start-up is among 10 winners to bag same-day contracts worth up to 53,000 pounds to fast-track the development of their innovations after directly pitching to the UK, US and NATO military leaders their solutions to some of the key challenges within the aerospace and defence industry. It is the same startup which won the inaugural International Space Pitch Day with its "Spacewise" concept for data analysis in real-time.
Their pitch named 'spacewise' said "Exploitation tool-set to visualise, access and analyse multiple input streams of data for advanced space command and control using cognitive AI. This tool-set enables space operations with allies and commercial partners by allowing visualisation and analysis of multiple different sources of data in real time.”
The defence ministry said it is the first time two nations anywhere in the world have come together to award defence contracts based around a pitch-style event.
