ZeroEyes, Inc., creators of the only AI-based platform focused on weapons detection that holds the US Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designation, has announced the promotion of JT Wilkins to Senior Vice President of Government Solutions and Dustin Kisling to Senior Vice President of Strategy. These promotions position ZeroEyes for accelerated growth of its first-of-a-kind AI weapons detection platform into government markets and through targeted strategic partnerships.

In his newly expanded role, Mr. Wilkins will be responsible for the strategic and targeted growth of the ZeroEyes government solutions across federal and municipal government markets. He will focus on growing AI threat detection into the DoD requirement cycle, developing ZeroEyes’ Air Force SBIR into a program of record, expanding ZeroEyes’ solution into federal civilian agencies and establishing strategic defense partnerships.

“There are few jobs outside of the military and first responder communities where you truly feel as though you are making a difference,” says Wilkins. “At ZeroEyes, I wake up every day knowing I am contributing to saving lives. Focused on the government market, I am working tirelessly to ensure those who protect us abroad and work to keep our country running effectively are safe and secure here at home.”

In Kisling’s newly expanded role as Senior Vice President of Strategy, he will be responsible for strategic alignment with ZeroEyes’ industry and technology partners, go-to-market opportunity evaluation and strategy development, industry M&A, VC and PE landscape evaluation and initiatives and overseeing business development initiatives.

“It’s a privilege to be a part of a company so committed to making the world a safer place,” says Kisling. “The professionalism and dedication of every member of the company makes ZeroEyes an exceptional place to work. I look forward to supporting the mission and company growth and ultimately bringing our technology to even more customers in need of a security solution.”

Kisling and Wilkins are both military veterans. Previously, Wilkins served as a Marine Gunnery Sergeant and led intelligence and targeting operations in the Special Operations Forces. Throughout his career in the Marines, Wilkins operated at every level of the Department of Defense, working directly with the Intelligence Community, Department of Justice and other governmental agencies to mitigate threats against the United States and Allied Nations.
