Rebellion Defense to Provide Target Recognition Solution for US Navy

DC startup Rebellion Defense has received a contract to deliver a target recognition and tracking solution for the US Navy.

Under the agreement, the company will provide its Iris software product, which combines multi-domain data to localize threats while sharing real-time information across command and control centers for enhanced situational awareness.

The firm wrote that the Iris platform is powered by onboard artificial intelligence (AI) that can adapt to operator input and sensor suites.

Through these combinations, the software can track and identify entities quickly and accurately while maintaining operability in signal-congested environments.

Iris was built according to a modular open systems approach, enabling transparent data ownership and support for combat solution enhancement plans.

The contract was awarded by the US Navy’s Integrated Warfare Systems Program Office through Tradewinds, a digital marketplace environment leveraging AI and machine learning to assist Pentagon rapid acquisition pathways.

“We’re honored that Rebellion Iris software will help keep the Navy ready for current and future threats,” Rebellion Defense CEO Ben FitzGerald stated.

“We’re also excited to have won this opportunity through the [Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office’s] Tradewinds platform, which continues to facilitate rapid innovation and capability development for the [Department of Defense].”

Latest Contracts

The agreement follows Rebellion’s first contract with the US Navy in February to develop customized software for the agency’s Project Overmatch, a data-driven decision-making framework modernizing the Pentagon’s Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control strategy.

Two months later, the company signed a separate initiative with the US Air Force to facilitate automated testing of web applications under the agency’s in-service cloud-based platform.
