Meet the Team

Derek and Michelle Aultman

As former active duty military members assigned to the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC), Derek and Michelle, realized very early in their careers that data does not hold a ton of value unless it can be quickly processed and exploited by expertly trained analysts and disseminated to the right person who needs the exact information to make the best decision in the quickest manner. This is true for nearly every industry that exists, but especially for those industries whose mission it is to save human lives or have high-risk jobs.

Que-A Loop

Que a was created to outpace the Observe, Orient, Decide and Act (OODA) loop.

At the completion of their military careers, Derek and Michelle founded a successful Geospatial Intelligence company, Veteran Data Solutions (VetDS). By leveraging Derek’s combat operations experience with Michelle’s technology and intelligence experience, they had a over a decade of experience and success solving complex challenges focused on Big Data, Full Motion Video for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, data management, and services for Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination of Actionable Intelligence. It is through this success and experience that they discovered the niche opportunity to focus on improving video analytics with the development and integration of advanced machine learning algorithms, and so they founded their second company, Que-A.

Derek and Michelle AultmanIn 2014, Derek and Michelle founded Que-A. Que-A was conceptualized and designed to support the Special Operations teams in their process of detailed planning, intensive training, and utilization of advanced technology. This effort goes far beyond “being prepared.” It is a conscious strategy to outpace the Observe, Orient, Decide and Act (OODA) loop of the opposition. Each element is designed to more effectively Observe the situation, Orient oneself or unit appropriately, Decide how best to maneuver, and take effective Action.
