Spectral AI (NASDAQ:MDAI) stock is on the rise Tuesday after the artificial intelligence (AI) company announced a $500,000 government contract for its wound imaging technology.

According to a press release from Spectral AI, it’s teaming up with the Defense Health Agency (DHA) and the U.S. Army Medical Material Development Activity (USAMMDA). These two groups will provide it with support for the development of DeepView SnapShot M.

DeepView SnapShot M is a handheld version of the company’s DeepView Wound Imaging System. The goal is to shrink this system down to make it more easily usable during combat situations.

Spectral AI CEO Pete Carlson said the following about the government contract:

“We firmly believe that this collaboration will make a profound impact, as the miniaturization of medical devices is essential for introducing innovative medical care to a wider range of clinical settings and patients. This development reaffirms Spectral AI’s dedication to shaping the future of accessible medical care and solidifies its position as a trailblazer in AI-driven healthcare innovation.”
