With its high speeds, modular payloads, vertical takeoff and landing capability, and potential air defense applications, the twin-turbojet drones are ambitious additions to Anduril’s portfolio.
A key shift in the new strategy is moving away from the idea of building a centralized AI/machine learning pipeline within the DOD.
The funding will be used to scale and deploy Shield AI’s V-BAT Teams product domestically and internationally and accelerate tech integration with third-party uncrewed platforms.
The memo said the pause aims to safeguard personnel and agency data while officials determine appropriate policies for integrating AI capabilities that support missions.
By enabling multiple V-BATs to autonomously operate in electronically contested environments, these AI-driven systems can intelligently react to adversaries, environmental conditions, and coordinate seamlessly with other V-BATs on the mission.
The deal values Helsing at $1.8 billion post-money, making it the largest European AI defense technology startup.
Experts see major potential in Fury supporting manned-unmanned teaming missions given its AI-enabled autonomy and air-to-air combat capabilities.
The implementation of this AI-driven technology marks a significant step in modernizing and enhancing air defense systems, not just for the capital but potentially across various Defense Department and U.S. government installations.
This task force will provide guidance, develop evaluations, offer recommendations, and monitor the rollout of large language models and generative AI across the DoD.
DARPA's competition will run over the next two years with events taking place at the 2024 and 2025 DEF CON hacking conferences.
The historic flight, completed on the Eglin Test and Training Complex, represents a significant milestone in the integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Lattice for Mission Autonomy is designed to optimize military operations by enabling a single operator to manage multiple autonomous systems across diverse domains.
