23rd February 2021 - 10:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

​Will AI and machine learning enhance the performance of weapon systems and military equipment?

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced on 22 February that it will set up a joint centre of excellence with Matrix Defense to co-develop AI, machine learning and Big Data-driven solutions

These will be integrated with satellite and space systems, defence and attack systems, missiles, homing heads, EO payloads ‘and additional systems’, IAI added.

The development centre will focus initially on AI-driven solutions for automated target detection, by expanding the capabilities of existing systems and introducing ‘innovative capabilities on automated systems’.

IAI has been using AI capabilities in its various systems for many years but it will work with fellow Israeli company Matrix Defense on scaling existing capabilities and developing new ones.
