Rugged computer hardware solutions provider Systel has showcased Aided Target Recognition (AiTR) artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to the US Army.

A Systel-led industry team of experts participated in the Project Convergence 21 (PC21) event to demonstrate the capabilities with several rugged embedded computer solutions such as Raven-Strike and Kite-Strike.

During the demonstration, the Systel team was able to recognise and spot targets, as well as gather data for two days under numerous circumstances.

The multiple day and night operational scenarios included different ranges, sensor angles and motion, target motion and types, as well as sensor fields of view.

Systel Army systems programme manager Jay Williamson said: “We are honoured to participate in Project Convergence and are proud of the entire team’s efforts and performance during the event.

“Systel’s rugged AI embedded edge products are designed and manufactured to meet the exacting requirements, including MOSA and SWaP-C, that AFC demands, and we look forward to continuing our support of the army’s modernisation priorities and enduring platforms.”

According to the US Army Futures Command (AFC), PC21 is a ‘campaign of learning to aggressively pursue an artificial intelligence and machine learning-enabled battlefield management system’.

The event includes demonstrations and experiments during the year and will conclude with a series of exercises held for one month later this year.

The efforts will contribute to the goal of achieving Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
