Australian AI-Search prototype begins second developmental phase

22nd April 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


A new AI tool designed to enhance SAR missions for the RAN and RAAF has begun the second phase of development.

AI-Search is a prototype which uses sensor and processor systems and is highly portable. These sensors are trained to detect orange clothing rather than black clothing, producing a detection rate of 70% compared to the 50% rate achieved by the naked human eye.

The size of the sensors and systems will allow them to be fitted to a range of platforms including rotary-wing aircraft, naval vessels and UASs.

In the second stage of development, these systems will be tested in a variety of environmental conditions. Activities may include testing on a range of aircraft, according to Wg Cdr Michael Gan of the RAAF’s Plan Jericho research team.
