Sentar has a strong history of innovation, spurred by a culture of curiosity to find solutions to difficult problems.
Whether developing and applying emerging technologies to solve age-old problems, or tackling new problems arising from the deployment of new technologies, Sentar has been at the forefront, establishing a reputation for developing technologies and pursuing concepts that were “ahead of their time.” We were earnestly working with Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and agent-based algorithms in the early 1990s, participating in the AIAA committee for AI standards, and leading the publication of an ANSI Guideline for the development of Knowledge Based Systems (KBS). Sentar was awarded multiple patents and secured numerous SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) projects to apply those technologies to solve real operational challenges.
For example, Sentar principals led the design of one of the earliest industrial grade AI systems that was fielded and used by the US Intel Community (IC). As national security systems became more inter-connected, the challenge of cybersecurity captured the attention of the our researchers, and we began applying AI towards securing our defense systems even before formal requirements to do so existed. Some of our early work even formed the basis for DARPA’s Cyber Genome Program. These and other highlights are captured our History of Innovation.
