Sarcos Defense and BAE Systems enhance autonomous platforms to benefit DoD operations
2021-08-16 23:15

Sarcos Defense and BAE Systems announced that the companies are partnering to develop advanced perception and sensing capabilities for autonomous platforms for Air Force Research Laboratory, to benefit Department of Defense operations. This platform will aim to address the complex issues that involve the coordination of both individual and multiple cooperating heterogeneous autonomous platforms, including unmanned aircraft systems and unmanned ground vehicles equipped with standard multi-modal sensors, such as cameras, radar, and LiDAR. The expected result will coalesce multiple environmental inputs and combine with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to enable unmanned systems to work together in greater harmony, both alone and coordinating with each other in "Swarm" scenarios.
