BGR Government Affairs has signed on to provide DC coverage for Adarga, a top British AI software company.

Founded in 2016 by Robert Bassett Cross, a British Army veteran, Adarga’s AI analytics are geared to the military and national security sectors.

The London-headquartered company counts the British Army, Royal Air Force, UK Ministry of Defence and Royal Navy as customers.

It raised $20M in May via a new funding round that was led by BOKA Group, a US holding company.

BGR will provide counsel to Adarga on issues related to AI and software and target the Pentagon for development.

President Erskine Wells, who heads BGR's defense and aerospace practice, leads the outreach for Adarga.

Pete Landrum, defense policy advisor for Sen. Jeff Sessions; Joel Bailey, chief of staff for Rep. Jimmy Panetta; and Dan Greenwood, head of Congressional affairs for the Marine Corps and veteran of President Trump’s legislative affairs shop, round out the Adarga team.
