Data analytics company KickView has secured a $147,413 contract from the Department of Homeland Security's science and technology directorate to adapt a multisensor platform for use in queue length and wait time analyses at international airports in the U.S.

The Colorado-based startup will update its kvSonata software to help Customs and Border Protection personnel  analyze passenger flow during the customs inspection process, DHS said Wednesday.

KvSonata is designed to generate event data and threat notification. The artificial intelligence-based platform includes a dashboard for users to view historical data and alerts.

DHS awarded the Phase I funds via the Silicon Valley Innovation Program as part of the solicitation, titled "High Fidelity Counting and Measuring of CBP Queues and Service Times at Ports of Entry."

“KickView’s proposal is to leverage video feeds to perform object detection, tracking, fusion and analytics customized to the customer need,” said Melissa Oh, managing director of S&T SVIP.
