Air Force Awards Artificial Intelligence Contract to L3Harris
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 | Comments

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center awarded L3Harris Technologies a multimillion-dollar contract to develop a software platform that will make it easier for analysts to use artificial intelligence (AI) to identify objects in large datasets.

The U.S. military and intelligence community are inundated with massive amounts of data generated by remote sensing systems. Automated searches using algorithms that can identify preloaded images of objects makes pinpointing them easier. However, to train these algorithms, real images are often unavailable because they are either rare or do not exist. The L3Harris tool creates sample images used to train search algorithms to identify hard-to-find objects in the data, which will help make it easier for the military and intelligence community to adopt artificial intelligence.

“L3Harris is a premier provider of modeling and simulation capabilities that provide risk reduction for our customers who rely on advanced geospatial systems and data,” said Ed Zoiss, president, space and airborne systems, L3Harris. “Accelerating the use of AI will help automate analysis of large geospatial datasets so warfighters receive trusted data faster and more efficiently.”
