(US and Canada) The National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC) is excited to announce that its team has been chosen to assess the integration of advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence, in the U.S. Army's 10X Dismounted Infantry Platoon. The team's objective for the 10X24 project is to field a prototype of a robotic and AI-enabled human platoon and identify any potential technical gaps while aiming to improve a platoon's performance on the battlefield by a factor of 10, focusing on mobility, mission planning, and situational understanding.
"The advanced technology, when combined into a System of Systems, will highlight the promise of robotics and AI to enhance a platoon's performance on the battlefield," said Andrew Dallas, Chief Technology Officer at NAMC. "With this team's expertise and unwavering commitment to developing cutting-edge technology, we shape a future where our warfighters team with robots to make swift, informed decisions while executing battlefield tasks showcasing the seamless integration of human capabilities and technological prowess."
The NAMC team for this effort is comprised of eight consortium members, including Auburn University, Bounce Imaging, Charles River Analytics, Inc., DPI LLC, KEF Robotics Inc., Lockheed Martin, Persistent Systems LLC, and Raytheon BBN. Integration efforts will begin in October of 2023, with the final demonstration scheduled for September 2024. Their proposal is being funded by the Ground Vehicle Robots (GVR) group under the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) U.S. Army Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC).
NAMC membership includes 500+ innovative organizations, including academia, nonprofits, and traditional and non-traditional defense contractors. These organizations provide specific expertise in developing manned and unmanned autonomy-enabled Ground Vehicle Systems and related technologies for US military personnel on the front lines.
