U.S. military spectrum management is currently undergoing many changes – from spectrum sharing to technology advances in quantum sensors and artificial intelligence (AI).
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. Researchers from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, Army Research Laboratory and university partners from the Internet of Battlefield Things Collaborative Research Alliance (IoBT CRA) announced the development of a method for neural networks to be more confident in their understanding of battlefield environments.
Developing artificial intelligence (AI) technology for the battlefield is a top priority for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as its adversaries continue to scale up their own AI and machine learning capabilities. Much of the DoD’s AI wizardry is spun out of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which looks to enable machines to become trusted, collaborative partners of not just warfighters but all humans.
FORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. Army researchers, as part of a national security team, are observing the evolution of new, low-cost threat emitters intended to improve the Army’s ability to represent the adversary’s equipment and actions. Threat emitters aim to provide a current, simulated battlespace environment designed to train allied warfighters to identify and defeat evolving adversaries.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. According to the Army Research Lab, Army-funded researchers have demonstrated a machine learning approach that could correct quantum information in systems composed of photons, intended to improve the outlook for deploying quantum sensing and quantum communications technologies on the battlefield.
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. Researchers at University of Massachusetts Amherst, with funding from the Army Research Office (ARO) and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), announced they have identified a way to protect quantum information from a common error source in superconducting systems. The research, published in Nature, realized a novel way for quantum errors to be spontaneously corrected.
Several programs underway at Purdue University intend to develop state-of-the-art technology that will train military leaders for modern warfare and make battlefield operations more secure.
