ROME, NY – U.S. Air Force researchers are asking for industry”s help in developing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to planning systems that help commanders adapt quickly to changing conditions on the battlefield.

Officials of the Air Force Research Laboratory”s Rome Research Site in Rome, NY, issued a broad agency announcement (FA875020S7007) on Thursday for the Stratagem:  Applying State-of-the-Art Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Approaches to Air Battle Management project.

Stratagem seeks new AI capabilities that can reason in real-time about developments in the battlespace during wartime engagements and assist planners and decision makers responsible for reacting to those developments.

As the Air Force begins to operate in contested environments against peer and near-peer adversaries, the demands on planners and warfighters will increase quickly enough to require AI and machine learning decision support, researchers say.
