Booz Allen Ventures has made a strategic investment in Syracuse, New York-based remote sensing company Hidden Level Inc., a move Steve Escaravage, executive vice president at Booz Allen, said would help accelerate the company’s contributions to advancing the counter-unmanned aerial systems mission.

Hidden Level’s passive sensing technology makes use of radio frequency sensors to identify and monitor airborne threats, providing tactical support to its defense clients worldwide.

Its counter-UAS technology is expected to inform Booz Allen’s Digital Battlespace Platform, focused on empowering the modern warfighter at the edge.

“The ongoing conflict in Ukraine empirically demonstrates the value of UAS technologies and disproportionate intelligence in modern warfare,” said Escaravage, a Potomac Officers Club member and leader of the Digital Battlespace team.

“Investments in companies like Hidden Level accelerate our ability to bring novel insights to the counter-UAS mission, expanding the potential for decision advantage by our nation’s warfighters.”

The investment, Booz Allen Ventures’ first for the year, follows its previous support for Latent AI, Synthetaic and other start-ups in defense, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep technology.
