US Marine Corps Eyes Chatbots to Support Geospatial Intelligence Processing

The U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command wants to learn about commercial chatbots that could augment a multilevel tactical data system for geospatial intelligence.

The service uses the Distributed Common Ground/Surface System-Marine Corps GEOINT platform to collect and process such intelligence data to facilitate battlespace visualization and common ground for decision-making. According to a request for information posted on SAM .gov, the system also enables rapid threat prediction and response by supplying near real-time geospatially referenced data for Marine Air-Ground Task Force and allied operations.

Vendors are encouraged to submit white papers detailing artificial intelligence chatbots that can use natural language processing to receive, analyze and produce information supporting the service’s geospatial requirements. Such technology must be operable on all USMC network domains.

The submission deadline is on Aug. 29 with vendor demonstrations expected between late fiscal year 2023 and the first quarter of FY 2024. Some offerings could proceed to laboratory testing and field deployment, DefenseScoop reported Friday.

The news comes after the U.S. Navy recently announced a new AI chatbot to provide service desk support.
