Dstl’s DASA launched its Intelligent Ship Phase 2 competition
DASA is looking for novel and innovative technologies, approaches, and enablers to revolutionise military decision-making, mission planning and automation with the aid of Artificial Intelligence.
The eventual aim, for 2030 and beyond, is to exploit a human-machine network that could work collaboratively on military platforms.
This Phase 2 call seeks projects to support the evaluation and demonstration of a range of human-machine teams, or Agents for Decision-Making (ADeMs), and their integration with an evaluation environment (the Intelligent Ship Artificial Intelligence Network (ISAIN)). An agent could be an AI application, a human, or a mix of the two.
This competition follows a successful Phase 1 call in July 2019 which funded 9 proposals, and aims to build on these developments, as well as those made in other Intelligent Ship project activities. We also welcome bids from new suppliers. Human-machine interfacing will be an important part of this work and will assist stakeholders to envision how this type of intelligent automation can be interfaced with human teams in the future.
