DARPA released a Broad Agency Announcement on Monday for its new Artificial Intelligence Reinforcements (AIR) program.

Army to launch new algorithm-focused program in 2024 to support TITAN initiative

by

The Army plans to create a new technology “pipeline” for artificial intelligence and machine learning to aid the service’s TITAN program.

Air Force Research Lab seeks new algorithms to enhance space situational awareness

by

The Air Force Research Laboratory is looking for new machine learning and high-performance computing capabilities that could improve the U.S. military’s situational awareness of potential threats in the space domain. AFRL, under a Broad Agency Announcement updated on Thursday, is soliciting white papers for the effort. The focus of the BAA is to “research, develop, demonstrate, integrate, test and deliver innovative technologies associated with tasking, collection, processing, exploitation, analysis and…

AI task force for Navy surface fleet devising comprehensive data catalog

by

A Navy task force formed to operationalize artificial intelligence and machine learning across the surface fleet is steering efforts to fix data and lay the foundation for associated emerging technology applications in the near future.  Effective AI depends on data that is “clean” or cohesive enough to build algorithms off of. Naval Surface Force components, which equip and staff warships ahead of their deployments to respective fleet commands for military…

SpaceWERX explores machine learning for on-orbit servicing, manufacturing

by

The Space Force’s innovation arm, SpaceWERX, has tapped Wallaroo Labs to explore and demonstrate how machine learning models can be deployed to advance multiple efforts associated with on-orbit servicing, assembly, and manufacturing (OSAM) missions for the newest U.S. military branch. The company was selected for a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project to help the Space Force fully unleash machine learning within its OSAM-aligned production environments, according to…

DARPA launching research project to revolutionize brain injury diagnosis on the battlefield

by

Serving as a leader in military medicine since the 1990s – including as director of force health protection for U.S. and NATO units in southwestern Afghanistan — Cmdr. Jean-Paul Chretien is familiar with the complex damage that traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause. In an interview with FedScoop, the naval medical officer, who now leads a soon-to-launch research project at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), explains the threat that this type of injury poses to…

Navy demos 5G for machine learning, video surveillance, zero trust and more

by

Pentagon and Navy officials observed an AT&T-supplied 5G network power artificial intelligence, augmented reality and machine learning and other applications at scale during a recent showcase event at Naval Base Coronado in San Diego. Fifth-generation wireless technology refers to the latest and fastest iteration of cellular communications tools. These demonstrations come a little over a year and a half after the Defense Department announced $600 million in awards to a…

Combatant commander tasked with homeland defense warns of shortage of AI capabilities

by

U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command don’t have sufficient artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, the dual-hatted chief of both organizations warned Monday. The Pentagon is pursuing new space-based sensors, communications systems and other capabilities to improve situational awareness. But it needs AI to better crunch and share the data it collects. “This year’s budget, I think, moves the ball down the field with regards to domain…

Marine Corps looks to machine learning for personnel retention

by

To better retain talent in its ranks, the Marine Corps is turning to machine learning and artificial intelligence to examine recruiting data and identify key attributes of Marines who will likely stay in uniform. The military writ large has struggled to retain specialized skills, especially tech talent, so the Marine Corps has turned to tech to identify key traits in recruits to inform management choices around retention. The new tech…
