Air Mobility Command Fields AI Tool to Strengthen Military Supply Chain

The U.S. Air Force’s Air Mobility Command is experimenting with a cloud-based artificial intelligence tool developed by Defcon AI to modernize logistics missions by allowing planners to compare different courses of action based on potential disruptions.

Col. Bradley Rueter, head of AMC’s Commander’s Initiative Group, said Artiv can reduce complex operational wargaming analysis time from minutes to days, Defense One reported Thursday.

He shared that Artiv will form part of a suite of integrated tools AMC will use to predict where its services are needed. The operational planning ecosystem is expected to launch in 2025.

According to Scott Stapp, Defcon’s chief technology and revenue officer, Artiv will reduce planning time after unexpected supply aircraft delays from multiple days to “20 to 30 minutes.”

Stapp added that his company wants to introduce more complex AI tools, which will require more Department of Defense data. The DOD does not usually provide such data until it has worked with a company, he explained.

The Defcon executive added that the DOD is prioritizing contested logistics, which involves moving supplies across vast distances during conflicts, as part of its Joint All-Domain Command and Control effort.
