Electronic warfare prototypes improve operational understanding against near-peer threats
MCLEAN, Va. (May 10, 2018) -- An adversary is spotted positioning fighters along the border of an ally nation. As U.S. Army forces are quickly deployed, one unit is under special instructions: detect and survey the adversary's electronic warfare jammers and emitters.
As vital as this information is for the commander's situational awareness, a few months ago mapping out the electromagnetic spectrum would have been much more difficult.Read More
Up for the challenge? Army wants help in applying AI, machine learning to signal detection
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. (April 24, 2018) -- Digitally speaking, it's loud out there. Cell phones, satellite signals, radars and more are making the electromagnetic spectrum a crowded and congested space.
To cut through the noise and increase the speed at which Electronic Warfare Officers can identify and react to these signals on the battlefield, the Army's Rapid Capabilities Office is seeking new technologies that apply artificial intelligence and machine learning to paint a picture of the electromagnetic spectrum.Read More
Army teams with SOCOM to conduct urban "burn-off"
MUSCATATUCK URBAN TRAINING COMPLEX, Ind. (April 4, 2018) -- Against a backdrop of a decaying city, complete with a collapsed parking garage, rundown marketplace, flooded village, downed aircraft and more than a mile of subterranean tunnels, the Army scouted new technologies that provide positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) in GPS-denied environments.
At the Muscatatuck Urban Training Complex, Ind., from March 26-29, the Army Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) took part in the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Technical Experimentation event, used to assess and identify potential capabilities. The event had several assessors and organizations on hand to evaluate capabilities for optics, biometrics, advanced sniper rifles and cognitive enhancement.Read More
