Drone detection company, Hidden Level receives investment from Booz Allen
Booz Allen Hamilton, a federal contracting giant, has made a strategic investment in drone detection company Hidden Level through its corporate venture capital arm.
The investment will accelerate the adoption of unmanned aerial system (UAS) detection technologies and operational concepts among its global defense clients.
Hidden Level uses radio frequency sensing technology to help detect potential drone threats and support counter-UAS missions.
The company has worked with the Federal Aviation Administration as part of its Airport Unmanned Aircraft Systems Detection and Mitigation Research Program.
Booz Allen's $100 million venture capital arm, launched in July, previously invested in companies such as Latent AI, Synthetic, and Reveal Technology.
Hidden Level CEO and Co-Founder Jeff Cole said that Booz Allen's mission expertise paired with their deep technology work makes it a natural extension of the investment.
“The investment from Booz Allen Ventures is a natural extension of our deep technology work, paired with Booz Allen's mission expertise,” Hidden Level CEO and Co-Founder Jeff Cole said. “Booz Allen understands the technology needed to support warfighters, and Hidden Level will play an important role in both tactically and strategically supporting DOD through dual-use technology to achieve decision superiority.”
Booz Allen Ventures invests funds on behalf of the federal contracting giant in startups innovating across the areas of defense, Artificial Intelligence/machine learning, cybersecurity, and deep technology.
The size and terms of the investment were not immediately available.
