Lockheed Martin Wins Contract to Develop Artificial Intelligence Tools for DARPA

Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $4.6 million contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools for dynamic air missions as part of its Artificial Intelligence Reinforcements (AIR) program.

This project aims to provide advanced modeling and simulation (M&S) approaches and dominant AI agents for live missions involving multiple aircraft and beyond visual range (BVR) operations. It is a critical step in prioritizing and investing in innovative technologies for national security and addressing the growing needs of customers.

DARPA’s AIR program will enhance the speed and predictive performance of the baseline models provided by the government to better match the real-world performance of Department of Defense systems. During the 18-month performance period, Lockheed Martin will apply AI and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to create surrogate models of aircraft, sensors, electronic warfare, and weapons in dynamic and operationally representative environments.

“In complex air missions, our customers need access to advanced technologies that quickly connect critical systems across all domains. The DARPA AIR program will use cutting-edge ML scientific technology and Lockheed Martin’s ARISE infrastructure to deliver unprecedented amounts of data that service members can use to make faster and more informed decisions,” said Gaylia Campbell, vice president of Engineering and Technology for Missiles and Fire Control at Lockheed Martin. “This will provide significant cost-saving opportunities for the Department of Defense and serve as a foundation for future AI defense solutions, ensuring that the U.S. and its allies maintain their competitive edge regardless of circumstances.
