Introducing Primer Delta: Our next-gen AI-native platform to transform information overload into decision advantage

Today, we’re announcing general availability (GA) of Primer Delta, our cutting-edge AI-native platform that uses machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) to enhance and accelerate daily analyst and operator workflows in customer hosted environments.

Primer Delta is purpose-built for analysts, operators and decision-makers who want to be more productive and turn high-scale messy data into decision advantage. Primer Delta can process millions of documents and reliably extract entities, locations, and topics of interest, surface hard to find insights, and generate comprehensive summaries – saving users hundreds of hours of manual work and giving them an information advantage over competitors. 

Primer Delta supports a variety of missions and use cases, from mission planning and asset tracking to accelerating intelligence cycles. For customers who want to leverage next-generation Large Language Models (LLMs) for more contextual and fluent data analysis, we are working on deploying domain-specific LLMs in their environment while respecting document level permissions and providing sentence-level provenance.

Information overload has reached its tipping point

Collecting, processing and exploiting data to detect and understand threats is a manual, time-consuming, and incredibly important process – one that our national security relies on. Analysts and operators take pride in their work product, but the majority of their day is spent piecing together data from various data sources, types and formats. Information overwhelm leads to increased risk of missing things and human error. Many of these manual tasks can reliably be handled by a machine trained on domain-specific data. This allows humans to apply their judgment, develop courses of action, and speed time to decision. 

As Tony Thomas, Former Commander for U.S Special Operations Command, rightly articulates:

At Primer, we believe that analysts and operators deserve to have reliable and trusted AI now to achieve their mission and stay safe. Today it is abundantly clear that innovation is no longer just measured in hardware years, but in coding weeks. At a time of increasing geopolitical instability, the country that gets modern and reliable software capabilities into the hands of our analysts and operators first, wins. That’s why we are building secure, trusted, and interoperable AI that can be fielded in hours, not years.

Primer Delta: what used to take hours now takes minutes

Enter Primer Delta, the AI-native analytic solution that is customized and fine-tuned for national security agencies and US military who want to keep their sensitive data secure. Delta deploys cutting-edge NLP and machine learning to help our customers reliably extract meaning from massive amounts of unstructured data – text, audio, video, images and geospatial data – in an interface that is optimized for their workflows and interoperable with their existing environments. Designed to operate securely within your network and on your data, Primer maintains custom connectors to work securely with customer data stores, integrating with their choice of identity and access providers for granular access control.

With Primer Delta, analysts and operators can intuitively surface, summarize, process and analyze messy multi-source data, including publicly available information (PAI) and proprietary data, with minimal effort and at unprecedented timelines. What used to take hours can now take minutes. Analysts save time by quickly identifying critical information, what’s new and what’s changed, and discover hard-to-find connections and trends. A self-generating and updating knowledge base and powerful views of mission-specific entities, locations, and events make for effective and efficient data exploration and alerting at scale.

Primer Delta at Work

Primer Delta is built on a powerful proprietary infrastructure that can be configured to support a wide range of use cases, including:

  • Increased situational awareness: Watch teams often operate in standard 4- or 6-hour shifts, and information is not always conveyed from one shift to another. Watchstanders can use Primer Delta to help them accumulate and update all relevant information 24/7 – unlike us, the machines never sleep. 
  • Mission planning: Each day, military pilots spend hours on flight planning, poring over maps, weather, airport requirements and more – still using many of the same manual tools from the 1970s. Primer Delta can automate the entire process, providing go/no-go recommendations based on aircraft type, enroute weather and NOTAMS, and pilot readiness levels in a single display, and with a greater level of precision.
  • Asset tracking. Primer Delta can provide an updated asset tracking system for a Commander to view all of their assets in a single dashboard, along with any threat data that would impact their operations. By aggregating incident reports and providing predictive capabilities to more comprehensively assess risk, Commanders can make better decisions faster.
