As the second-fastest growing defense-focused advanced technology, research, and development company in the United States, we’ve had opportunities to design game-changing innovations for all major branches of the US Department of Defense (DoD). Our breadth spans across many areas, allowing us to develop cutting-edge products for advanced manufacturing, the digital thread, advanced intelligent power systems, unconventional tactical lighting, revolutionary satellite manufacturing techniques, and a range of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions for DoD and commercial implementation.
Currently, AURA is the US Army lead for AI-based intelligent tactical power, and the only company to be awarded funding to develop a true, secure Digital Thread that connects part designers to defense end-users to print parts on demand.

Our AI work centers around predictive analytics, deep learning, and data-augmented decision-making. Training our algorithms with large historical data sets allows AURA’s AI solutions to support both long-term strategic decisions and urgent tactical responses while offering clients the best possible user experience.
The innovative AI algorithms being built by AURA will allow crucial decisions to be guided by data. Our focus on AI is geared towards increasing the speed, accuracy, and efficiency of human-in-the-loop intelligence, not replacing human intelligence.
AssuranceAI™ is a predictive maintenance solution that is designed to decrease overall maintenance costs and reduce the need for spare parts and uninformed inventory purchases and management. Using advanced AI algorithms to diagnose and prognosis equipment failures, AssuranceAI™ increases safety, readiness, and availability.
An end-to-end AI product, AssuranceAI™ ingests sensor data, automates the data cleaning process, diagnoses/prognoses future equipment failures, and recommends maintenance actions before an unplanned failure occurs. The solution supports numerous equipment types across a variety of applications, including industrial plants, power plants, naval vessels, ground vehicles, and aircraft.
As the number of satellites in orbit increases due to the commercialization of space technology, tracking of space debris must ensure that avoidable collisions do not occur. Non-traditional data sources, such as sensor observations from academia or industry, have not yet been properly utilized due to the difficulty of integrating them within traditional astrophysical calculations.
AURA is developing deep-learning algorithms to not only unify disparate data types but also grade the uncertainty and usefulness of non-traditional information, giving our clients the full picture.
American households face approximately $150 billion in power outage-related expenses each year. For businesses and military branches, this number skyrockets from there. AURA is creating the smart power grid technology of the future which will dramatically reduce power outages while increasing the reliability of microgrids in any environment.
The development of a power system that can detect equipment degradation and subtle power anomalies over time has far-reaching implications for the prevention of equipment failure, power blackouts, and even cybersecurity attacks. AURA’s Intelligent Power Distribution Units (IPDU) react to common signs of power grid failure such as Voltage Droop/Swell, Frequency Droop/Swell, Over-Current Conditions, Power Distortions, and out-of-range Power Factor by shutting down non-essential loads and bringing the system back into a safe and stable condition. The IPDUs also provide total management of the power system, delivering a constant and in-depth health check of every piece of equipment on the grid.
Across the DoD and within third-party providers, Technical Data Packages (TDPs) are managed in a wide array of formats across literally thousands of independent data repositories. Unlike other competing products, ours does not need proprietary TDPs to be stored in a single, central repository. Instead, it acts as a mediator between these many independent repositories, tying data together in a SmartThread™.
SmartThread™ is the mediator between the many independent repositories for TDPs. Unlike other competing products, SmartThread™ does not need proprietary TDPs to be stored in a single, central repository. Furthermore, SmartThread™ does not require TDPs to be in any particular format. When integrating a new repository, SmartThread™ automatically extracts the information it needs for transactions and intelligent searching.
SmartThread™ implements intelligent search capabilities that allow users to search using a combination of parameters and the geometric similarity of parts. Parameter-based searchers narrow down candidate parts based on metadata such as part type, manufacturer, or material. Geometric features can be used to further refine searches. For example, the user can identify a similar part in the database or provide an existing 3D model that is similar to the part they wish to find. These search results also provide a percent of the match to refine the best choices to meet your needs.
