SUGAR LAND, Texas. Systel, Inc., company specializing in rugged computer hardware solutions, demonstrated Aided Target Recognition (AiTR) artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities with multiple rugged embedded computer solutions, including Raven-Strike and Kite-Strike, to the U.S. Army at a recent Project Convergence 21 (PC21) event.
According to the U.S. Army Futures Command (AFC), and the Army's contribution to Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), Project Convergence is a large-scale campaign of learning aimed at pursuing an AI and machine learning-enabled battlefield management system.
Officials claim that the PC21 event specifically consists of demonstrations and experiments throughout the year, culminating in a month-long series of exercises in late 2021.
A Systel-led industry team claims it was able to detect and mark targets and collect data over two days of day and night operational scenarios consisting of varying ranges, target motion, target types, and sensor angles, motion, and fields of view.
