Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) engineers and researchers used artificial intelligence (AI) agents or algorithms to fly an unmanned XQ-58A Valkyrie aircraft on a three-hour sortie during a July 25 demonstration at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
One of the common features of modern military avionics systems is the adoption of high-frequency and millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications to achieve higher data rates and enhanced resistance to interference.
Prior investigations of swarm robot control focus on optimizing communication and coordination between agents, with at most one human control scheme, or with discrete (rather than continuous) human control schemes.
VNX+ has been selected by the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) consortium as a SFF standard to be used for C5ISR sensor payloads in space constrained applications, typical in manned and unmanned air vehicles and spacecraft.
Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, is producing a Hybrid-Electric Demonstrator, a fully-autonomous hybrid-electric vertical-take-off-and-landing prototype, with a maximum gross weight of more than 7,000-pounds.
Ground troops are equipped with identification-friend-or-foe devices. When they are engaged in a firefight, they seek cover and concealment, and consequently, their attached IFF are also covered and concealed.
