When forward-deployed Army soldiers need air support, an operations center is tasked with identifying and assigning aircraft aid. With traditional software, an operator moves through a multistep process to search for available aircraft, identify their call signs and assess the munitions they carry. Pulling this relevant information can take several minutes—a long time to wait when making “real-time” decisions for immediate support.
Considering the massive amount of information the U.S. Department of Defense must sift through every day and increasingly sophisticated UAVs and UASs collecting even more data, it’s no surprise the Pentagon has turned to artificial intelligence for help.
The newly launched Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office and efforts and strategies such as the Artificial Intelligence and Data Acceleration initiative, Joint All Domain Command and Control and JAIC shows that DoD recognizes the potential of AI in decision compression.
