Telesto Group, a subsidiary of CollabraLink Technologies, announced today that it has been awarded the Data Readiness Artificial Intelligence Development (DRAID) contract by the Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC). This new four-year contract (W52P1J-22-G-0051) will provide broad access to Federal agencies that are seeking to accelerate adoption of AI in support of mission enablement.

In addition to the important modernization work that is happening at the application layer, DRAID is going to create opportunities for our agency partners to conceptualize AI use cases and implement new data management products that can have a profound impact on their mission.”
