America's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) has contracted BAE Systems to develop advanced analytics technology to assist in the detection and deterrence of weapons of mass destruction.
"BAE Systems has received funding from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office to develop advanced analytics technology that will assist in the detection and deterrence of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) activity, helping to ensure national security," the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The first-of-its-kind technology will leverage multiple data sources and uses data fusion, adversary modelling, pattern matching, and machine learning techniques to detect and identify indications of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) threat.
As part of DARPA's SIGMA+ program, the BAE Systems FAST Labs™ research and development team will work with partners Barnstorm Research and Washington State University to create a technology solution called MATCH (Multi-info Alerting of Threat CBRNE Hypotheses). MATCH will automatically populate a world graph using sensor and multi-source data to provide analysts visibility into threat activities in a metropolitan region. Using the graph, MATCH will create hypotheses that identify and characterize threatening CBRNE activity.
Phase 1 research on the SIGMA+ program leverages BAE Systems' expertise in data fusion, advanced analytics, and resource management as part of its autonomy technology portfolio. It also builds on a previous work for DARPA's Insight program and leverages the company's mature All-Source Track and Identity Fuser (ATIF) and Multi-INT Analytics for Pattern Learning and Exploitation (MAPLE)technologies. Work for the program will be completed at the company's facilities in Burlington, Massachusetts and Arlington, Virginia.
The United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has contracted BAE Systems to develop new cyber tools to help prevent vulnerabilities in electronic files that can lead to cyber attacks. Development of these tools will be part of DARPA's Safe Documents (SafeDocs) program, which aims to more effectively identify and reject malicious data in a variety of electronic formats, BAE Systems said in a statement Tuesday
The United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has entered into an agreement with BAE Systems to develop software that will enable semi-autonomous multi-domain mission planning. Dubbed Multi-domain Adaptive Request Service (MARS), the technology will be designed for military operators to leverage battlespace resources from across various domains, such as space, air, land, and sea, for more effective, efficient missions, the company said in a statement Tuesday
Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technology designed to take over low-level maneuvering tasks from fighter pilots. The first two trials will take place November 2019 and January 2020 near Baltimore at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which is developing and managing the simulation air environment for the AlphaDogfight Trials
DARPA has completed preliminary design review of a new ground-launched hypersonic weapons system being developed under Operational Fires (OpFires) program. OpFires aims to develop and demonstrate a ground-launched hypersonic weapon system to engage critical, time-sensitive targets in contested environments
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Lockheed Martin a contract worth $12.3 million for phase one of the Manta Ray program
United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plans to commence work on “Gunslinger program” to develop an air-launched tactical range missile system with a gun system, next year. “This system will utilize the high maneuverability of a missile system coupled with a gun system capable of scalable effects and engagement of multiple targets,”
