On December 9, the Catalyst Space Accelerator (CSA) of Colorado Springs, CO announced the companies who will come together for three months of training, customer discovery, and networking in its fifth Accelerator session: Data Fusion for Space Applications.

This cohort, sponsored by Microsoft, provides each company with $15K in non-dilutive funding. Companies will have Department of Defense and Commercial Sherpas to assist them in making connections with potential customers and partners. The participants will learn how to navigate government contracting and how to shape their product into something the warfighter truly needs.

During the selection process, twenty applicants were narrowed down to eight companies accepted into the program. Included among the final eight companies is Greenville-based Blue Eye Soft Corp, an IT and ITES company that uses AI and The Cloud to deliver Business Intelligence and Predictive Analytics. Their R&D is focused on fusing diverse advanced data sources like 3D/4D images and sound.
