The new investment brings a wealth of artificial intelligence and machine learning knowledge, experience and capabilities to General Dynamics’ customers across all domains.

FAIRFAX, Va. – General Dynamics Mission Systems acquired Deep Learning Analytics (DLA), LLC, on March 1, 2019. The 5-year-old company provides proven capabilities to harness massive data sets and make advances in computing hardware and algorithms to aid in superior prediction, threat detection, decision-making, and complicated problem solving for customers.

“Deep Learning Analytics brings to General Dynamics an extensive expertise in artificial intelligence and specializes in deploying deep learning algorithms on small, power-efficient appliances and mobile devices,” said Chris Brady, president of General Dynamics Mission Systems. “Through data science, research, machine learning, predictive analytics and software engineering, our government and commercial customers can better exploit their data—a tremendous value to their missions.”

DLA has pushed the state of the art in machine learning forward and excelled on projects sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

“Together, DLA and General Dynamics Mission Systems represent a combination where the sum is greater than the parts. General Dynamics gains access to the most capable deep learning expertise in the D.C. metro region and DLA gains access to a scale of data it did not have access to before” said DLA founder Dr. John Kaufhold. “It’s a win for both companies, and ultimately, good for the customers and their missions.”

DLA’s transformative strengths in machine learning will expand General Dynamics Mission Systems’ capabilities to better serve its customers and their missions.
