Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and predictive analytics are dominating today’s business headlines and are ushering in a multitude of strategic changes to a variety of industries. Organizations of all sizes are directing massive resources of time, money and intellectual capital into AI development in a bid to realize market-leading leaps forward in technological capabilities. But where is the zeitgeist that is artificial intelligence development headed? In this episode of If/When we discuss artificial intelligence and data analytics with Stratos Davlos, the newly named chief technology officer for AI firm Innoplexus and Reuben Maher, Global Director and Data Analytics Lead at Jacobs.
With today’s advances in technology, the concept of artificial people has taken enormous steps forward in appearance and ability. Some notable and celebrated creations include Sophia, Hanson robotics’ media sensation who has been featured on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and the cover of Elle magazine, to Valkyrie, NASA’s imposing 6 foot 2 inch tall humanoid who looks like she could star in her own Star Wars spin-off. In this episode of If/When we spoke with Dr. David Hanson, founder of Hanson Robotics and Drew Watson, JETS Valkyrie Software Lead for Jacobs.
Jacobs ion© Industrial Internet of Things Platform
A comprehensive, multi-protocol wireless application networking system, the Jacobs ion© solution provides an open, integrated, secure and scalable system for data aggregation and viewing. The platform has been operationally deployed for over a decade and enables innovative approaches for data accuracy, data timeliness, and safety — greatly improving information flow and productivity.
KeyRadar®: Assured Mission Readiness; Improved ISR Intelligence
Jacobs’ proprietary KeyRadar® is a scalable, software-defined synthetic aperture radar that can be configured to address a variety of missions on a multitude of platforms. The radar system combines multiple bands with sophisticated processing and detection/recognition software to find concealed targets in the most challenging operational environments.

From launch to flight to splash down, we redefine what’s possible. For more than 70 years, our people have provided integrated solutions to help solve the most complex and hazardous challenges of space exploration.
With a global web of resources and more than 5,000 employees supporting multiple NASA centers, other government users and industry partners around the U.S., our team stays steps ahead to provide advanced engineering, research and operations support.
To provide an inside look at much of the work done to support NASA from robotics to launch control to support of the International Space Station, we were pleased to sit down with Joy Kelly, Vice President and General Manager of the Jacobs Clear Lake Group. For this episode of Inflection Points, Dr. Kelly spoke about the work Jacobs does with NASA as the agency’s #1 solutions provider, as well as her passion for STEM education and the success and challenges of business innovation in large organizations.
How Intelligent Asset Management Protects Tomorrow’s Space Technologies Today
When NASA sought to develop reliability-enhancing maintenance strategies for Langley Research Center, they partnered with us for our suite of solutions, including engineering, analytics and condition-based monitoring to prevent system failures, to optimize operations and increase the life of assets at NASA Langley. The 788-acre NASA campus includes 220 critical facilities and 270 total, such as subsonic-to-hypersonic wind tunnels used in aeronautic testing.

Cyber & Intelligence
For the first time in history, security threats have no borders. We are at the forefront of the most important security issues today. We are inspired to be the best and deliver innovative, mission-focused outcomes that matter to our clients.
Jacobs offers the most advanced, integrated approach to cybersecurity which includes offensive cyberspace operations, defensive cyberspace operations and cyber mission training and exercises.
Cyber criminals do not rest, and neither do those charged with providing for the defense of sensitive client and government information. In our latest episode of Inflection Points, we sat down with John Karabias, Vice President, Growth and Sales Strategy for Jacobs Cyber and Eric Conway, Technical Director for Cybersecurity Capabilities and Solutions, Jacobs Cyber to learn more about advances in cybersecurity.
How well do you really understand the potential exposure to your data? If you’re a large organization, you’re a lucrative target for cyber criminals, as well as at risk for regulatory fines and class action lawsuits. In this episode of If/When we will be discussing cybersecurity with Michael Morgan, Partner in the Global Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice at McDermott Will & Emery, and Susan Howard, Director of Federal Industrial Controls Systems (ICS) cybersecurity at Jacobs.
Industrial Control Systems & SCADA, Middle East
Cyber attacks in the Middle East prompted the initiation of security requirements for all Physical Security Information Systems and Industrial Control Systems for a confidential client.
Identity & Access Management (IdAM)
For an intelligence community client, we engineered and developed a hybrid cloud-based identity and access management capability to safeguard sensitive data stored and transmitted within a private cloud architecture. The end state solution required data-level access controls to ensure sensitive information is only made available through validated permissions.
