NAMC Team Seeks AI, Robotic Solutions for Enhanced Infantry Platoon Missions
The National Advanced Mobility Consortium, a non-profit organization that helps drive innovation in the defense industry, has created an eight-member team to integrate advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, in the U.S. Army’s 10X Dismounted Infantry Platoon program.
According to the NAMC, the program seeks to make foot soldiers 10 times more effective than the current dismounted infantry platoons. Dubbed 10X24, the team is tasked to deploy a robotic, AI-enabled human platoon and to assess its battlefield performance on mobility, mission planning and situational understanding, the NAMC said Wednesday.
The Ground Vehicle Robots group under the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Ground Vehicle Systems Center is funding the NAMC 10X24 team.
The team was scheduled to start its integration efforts in October, while the final demonstration of a prototype is set for September 2024, the consortium said.
The NAMC 10X24 task force is composed of Auburn University, Bounce Imaging, Charles River Analytics, DPI, KEF Robotics, Lockheed Martin, Persistent Systems and Raytheon.
NAMC, founded in 2008, has more than 500 members comprised of academic institutions, nonprofits and defense contractors, each with specific expertise in ground-based, manned and unmanned autonomous military vehicle development and related technologies.
