Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and Matrix Defense said Monday that they have established a joint Artificial Intelligence (AI)-development center.
The two companies will co-develop AI, machine learning (ML) and Big Data-driven solutions to be integrated into IAI’s satellite and space systems, defense and attack systems, missiles, homing heads, electro-optical payloads, and additional systems.
In the first stage, the development center will focus on AI-driven solutions for automated target detection on the future battlefield. The development center will seek to expand the capabilities and performance of existing systems and introduce innovative capabilities on automated systems.
IAI has been using AI capabilities in its various systems for many years. It will now leverage the development center to work with Matrix Defense on scaling existing capabilities and developing new ones. At the center, both companies will create innovative analytic engines and enhanced battlefield capabilities. The joint teams will work with experts in specific fields such as satellites, missiles, strategic systems, and more, as well as content experts on AI, analytical engines, and big data.
In an age of big data, operational systems’ operators are grappling with information influx. Integrating operational scenarios and automated tools with high reliability will enhance the systems’ performance and provide a significant edge on the future battlefield.
