The USAF and US Army partnership assessed Raytheon Corporation's AI solution that was designed to solve the problem of airspace deconfliction.

The 805th Combat Training Squadron (Shadow Operations Center-Nellis or ShOC-N) and the US Army’s Mission Command Battle Lab have assessed an AI-based tactical automation system for DARPA, the USAF announced on 6 September.

The assessment was enabled by the Air Space Total Awareness for Rapid Tactical Execution (ASTARTE) programme, which is a USAF/US Army partnership sponsored by DARPA.

ASTARTE tested an AI solution called Airspace Tactical Automation System (ATLAS), which was designed by Raytheon to solve the problem of airspace deconfliction.

‘The test success was achieved when all blue air tracks sent from the ShOC-N were received the Air Defence System Integrator & Tactical Airspace Integration System at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas,' the USAF noted in a press release.

Concurrently, a USA Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command (STRITCOM) test at Fort Eustis, Virginia, produced similar results when connected to ground forces simulation.

ASTARTE automates the ability to provide a real-time common operational picture of airspace in and above an army division to reduce the time required to execute joint fires.

The next ATLAS test is set to take place in late 2022.
