Artificial intelligence (AI) applied to weapons systems represents a major trend in research in the past 10 years. These initiatives seek to increase weapon accuracy, perform nonactive means of targeting, aid navigation and guidance and control (e.g., in Global Positioning System-denied situations), and reduce overall computational resources vs. traditional physics-based approaches to enable intelligent targeting on smaller, more affordable weapons systems. This research also includes extending the battlespace of operators to unmanned aerial vehicles and teaming with manned and unmanned platforms using swarming methods.

This webinar will cover the following topics, which are further detailed in our state-of-the-art report, “Artificial Intelligence for Weapons Systems”:

  • Description and history of AI
  • Principals, techniques, and applications of AI for weapons systems
  • Research and programs in autonomous systems; guidance, navigation, & control; behavior & path planning; sensor & information fusion; intelligent strategy & planning; wargame modeling; and cognitive electronic warfare
  • Systems and programs that apply AI for weapons systems
  • Ethical considerations for using AI for weapons systems
