美海军和中央司令部为同温层ISR寻求AI解决方案

简式防务网4月5日讯

美国海军和中央司令部向工业界联合发布方案征询公告,要求就同温层高空情报、监视、侦察(ISR)无人作战平台提出基于人工智能与机器学习的解决方案。过去5年,军方用高空气球和光伏无人平台进行试验,重点演示在这种高度(约40-50公里)长期遂行任务的能力,可为作战指挥官提供情报和预警,也可为地面部队提供具有弹性的空基通信节点与数据链,为陆海作战提供态势感知能力。


US Navy, CENTCOM seek solutions for stratospheric ISR operations

The US Navy and US Central Command (CENTCOM) are seeking industry solutions to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities to enhance the use of unmanned aerial systems (UASs) for stratospheric intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations, according to a joint solicitation.

The Strategic Command, Control, Communications, Computers and ISR (C4ISR) to Operationalize the Stratosphere (SCOS) programme will be led out of CENTCOM and the Naval Surface Warfare Center – Crane Division (NSWC-Crane). The programme will focus on the use of stratospheric balloons or solar-electric powered UAS platforms, according to the Request for Solutions (RFS) notice by the Strategic & Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted Systems (S2MARTS) other transactional authority (OTA).

“Developmental testing in the last five years has been focused on operationalising the stratosphere” via stratospheric balloons and solar UASs, the RFS stated. “These platforms offer the opportunity to enhance the mission for persistent operations in non-permissive environments,” it added.

With the platforms’ extremely high operating altitude and ability to remain on station over an ISR target for an extended period of time, both stratospheric systems provide combat commanders earlier intelligence and warning data on a proposed threat, as well as provide ground forces with a resilient airborne communication node and information cross datalink, programme officials wrote. Additionally, the operating altitudes of these platforms can improve maritime and land domain awareness, as well as mitigate any degradation in space based ISR collection assets, such as satellites, they added.
