The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is sponsoring BAE Systems to develop software that will aid military planners in understanding and addressing the complex dynamics that drive conflicts around the world.
Under a $4.2 million Phase 1 contract awarded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), the Causal Exploration of Complex Operational Environments program seeks to develop technology to model different political, territorial, and economic tensions that often lead to conflicts, helping planners to avoid unexpected outcomes, the company said in a statement Monday.
With increasingly complicated operational environments and diverse adversaries, military planners are often hindered from rapidly and effectively achieving a holistic understanding of conflict situations due to a lack of time, expert resources, and automated tools. To solve this challenge, BAE Systems is developing first-of-its-kind software called Causal Modeling for Knowledge Transfer, Exploration, and Temporal Simulation (CONTEXTS). The software is intended to create an interactive model of an operational environment, allowing planners to explore the causes of a conflict and assess potential approaches.
“Military planners often conduct manual research and use limited modelling tools to generate models and evaluate conflict situations, which are extremely time consuming and labor intensive,” said Chris Eisenbies, product line director of the Autonomy, Controls, and Estimation group at BAE Systems. “To break down these barriers, CONTEXTS will use reasoning algorithms and simulations with the goal to give planners a quicker and deeper understanding of conflicts to help avoid unexpected and counterintuitive outcomes.”
BAE is displaying the latest version of CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) integrated with iFighting concept at the 2018 Eurosatory trade show in Paris. The iFighting technology is designed to optimize vehicle and crew performance by harnessing data to enable faster decision-making in combat, the company said in a statement Monday

Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has been selected to participate in the first phase of the United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Subterranean (SubT) Challenge program as part of an international team led by the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). The DARPA SubT Challenge is focused on advancing technologies that will enhance the ability to rapidly map, navigate and search subterranean environments through both systems and virtual competitions
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected BAE Systems to develop data-driven, cyber-hunting tools that detect and analyze cyber threats to help protect extremely large enterprise networks. The contract for Phase 1, 2, and 3 of the program is valued at approximately $5
The United States' Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently completed Phase 2 flight tests of its Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program demonstrating advanced algorithms performing real-world tasks without human assistance. FLA performs tasks dangerous for humans – such as pre-mission reconnaissance in a hostile urban setting or searching damaged structures for survivors following an earthquake, DARPA said in a statement Wednesday
Lockheed Martin and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently performed a series of flight tests demonstrating how a system of systems (SoS) approach enables seamless – and rapid – integration across air, space, land, sea and cyber in contested environments. The demonstrations held at the Naval Air Warfare Center in China Lake, California, were part of a five year DARPA program called System of Systems Integration Technology and Experimentation (SoSITE)
BAE Systems designed collaborative robots, ‘cobots will be tested on the Typhoon production line by the end of the year. The cobotic workstation – designed to support people with complex manufacturing of combat aircraft- is fitted with a range of digital technology and will be piloted at the companys Warton, Lancashire site to work alongside manufacturers building high-tech systems for cutting-edge combat aircraft, the company said in a statement Wednesday
US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys (DARPA) Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program aims to improve mobility, survivability, safety and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling excessive armor. Several Phase 2 contract awardees recently demonstrated advances on a variety of technologies to meet the programs goals, the agency said in a statement Friday
