Army’s Project Linchpin Aims to Help Validate AI-Powered Solutions for Battlefield

The U.S. Army is continuing to work on creating trusted environments to help with the development and validation of artificial intelligence-powered solutions for integration with weapons and other systems.

Project Linchpin, initially conceptualized in 2022, aims to produce a safe mechanism to continuously integrate AI and machine learning capabilities into the service branch’s programs.

The first project to include algorithms associated with Project Linchpin is the Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node program, a next-generation ground system capable of capturing and dispensing sensor data for sensor-to-shooter kill chains, DefenseScoop reported.

In a roundtable with media on Monday, Young Bang, principal deputy assistant secretary of the Army for acquisition, logistics and technology, a past Potomac Officers Club event speaker and Wash100 winner, said that the effort is part of the Biden administration’s and the Department of Defense’s initiative to make the most out of AI.

In December, Col. Chris Anderson, program manager for intelligence systems and analytics at Program Executive Office Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, discussed how the project would help the military branch sort out a wide range of AI models and algorithms and pick which best suits its needs.
