We designed HACL with theater-level logistics in mind. When transporting millions of tons of materiel into a contested environment, every second of time and every drop of liquid fuel is precious. Hybrid airships will serve as strategic assets, freeing up traditional aircraft to perform tactical missions. We’re proud to design projects that will accelerate the development of concepts of employment for these multi-mission capable platforms for defense related applications.
eTHOR combines the dynamic versatility of autonomous and electric vehicles with 5G gateway capabilities to create a mobile battlefield communications platform that serves as a command and control enabler and as exportable electricity to satisfy battlefield energy needs.
We designed BoSEC knowing that unmanned counter-intrusion capabilities will transform the battlefield and play a key role in the Pacific. The systems at the center of this project use artificially intelligent sensor suites, machine learning, and leverage the benefits of edge computing. This project is aimed at the development of suitable system attributes and performance specifications to provide for an achievable balance of energy across the entire system.
We used iterative design principles in collaboration with defense autonomy experts to build prototypes that prove logistics operations on the future battlefield are autonomous, connected, and electric.
We designed Spectrum CAMO to analyze cellular enabled technologies on a 5G network to better understand how autonomous vehicles can operate through a “host nation” cellular network.
We designed MEC4CI to leverage 5G Networks and Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) and expedite the prototyping of AI/ML counter-intrusion systems. Our designs are inspiring experts in the digital security and telecom industries to blend 5G’s high bandwidth/low latency with robust edge compute capabilities to synthesize more information, faster. Ultimately, MEC4CI will demonstrate that advancements in commercial technology can enable our warfighters to offload routine, non critical tasks to digital fortress systems and focus on tasks that only humans can perform.
We set out to prove that conventional means of military design and manufacturing could be disrupted and accelerated. For the Co-Lab project, we crowdsourced vehicle designs from all over the world to prototype a modular, multi-mission platform for Marines.
What do you get when you set the table for an autonomy expert, telecom giant, and autonomous shuttle manufacturer to brainstorm together? A brand new way of moving people and packages on DoD installations. Connected over 4G/LTE & 5G networks, autonomous shuttles operating on different coasts of the US could share in-stride data that improves operations in both locations in real time.
