observability platform for onboard operational technology




fund I - 2019

Shift5 unlocks the complete ecosystem of onboard data for operations, maintenance, and cybersecurity teams for the first time, enabling real-time decision intelligence through complete onboard data access and observability from the asset level to fleet scale.

Our national security and economic prosperity depend on the reliability and readiness of critical defense and transportation assets. The immense volumes of data created onboard these assets can help improve safety, availability, and resilience. But complexity, proprietary architectures, and disparate manufacturers make this data inaccessible today, hindering rapid and well-informed decision-making.

Serving defense, commercial aviation, passenger rail and freight, Shift5 is the onboard data company. Created by officers who stood up U.S. Army Cyber Command and  pioneered modern weapons system cyber assessments, Shift5 defends commercial transportation systems and military platforms against operational failures and OT cybersecurity risks. Household name aviation companies, U.S. railroads, and fleets within the U.S. military rely on Shift5 to maintain the readiness and availability of today’s fleets and tomorrow’s next-generation assets.
