British Press: Artificial Intelligence Defends Royal Navy Against Missiles

21

For the first time, the Royal Navy is using artificial intelligence to defend itself against missiles. Advanced software is being tested on the high seas against combat missiles during the largest Formidable Shield exercises off the coast of Scotland and Norway.


It is reported by the British edition of Royal Navy News.

The maneuvers, involving more than XNUMX troops, are testing the ability of NATO warships to detect, track and destroy incoming missiles. Exercise "Formidable Shield" will last until early June. Three battleships of the Royal fleet: destroyer HMS Dragon and two frigates - Lancaster and Agrill.


The British press reports that Lancaster and Dragon are testing artificial intelligence and machine learning applications that today provide insight into the future of air defense at sea. Experts from the UK defense laboratory Dstl, along with industry partners from Roke, CGI and BAE Systems, are using the three-week exercise to field-test their Startle and Sycoiea systems.

Although experiments with artificial intelligence have been carried out before, this is the first time it is being tested against military missiles.

- said the engineer-gunsmith of the frigate "Lancaster" Lieutenant Commander Adam Leveridge.

The Startle system is designed to ease the burden on seafarers in control of the airborne situation in the control room by providing real-time guidance and alerts. Sycoiea Allows Crews To Identify Oncoming Missiles And Provides Selection Guidelines weaponsallowing you to deal with the threat faster than even the most experienced operator.

        "We have intelligence, we lack reaction brains!"


        It turns out that locusts are the most nimble in this regard. Locust-covered highway. A passenger car is passing by - and not a single one is crushed, everyone has time to jump out from under the wheels. belayTrue, with "intelligence" is tight. Our grasshopper gets out of the pond, and these packs die in the smallest tiny puddle.

            AI will shove wherever possible and impossible.
            Progress is unstoppable, at least for now.

              In the development of AI, Britain is now even ahead of the United States.
              Of course, the Britons are in the top three world leaders.
              And how they will dispose of their achievements - we'll see. hi

        AI from British scientists? Sounds like something ambiguous.

      Oversupply. They just don't know where to put it (intelligence) elsewhere.

      Not tolerant photography - it offends African Americans, Arabs, Hindus, etc., women, plus another 29 different genders ... because it hints that only a white man-man can work with artificial intelligence, the rest of the poor will not master! The photographer should be fired and anathematized! laughing

      The intellect of the "Britons" is diluted with polonium and powdered by the "beginner".

      That is not.
      KAZ is hung on tanks, and the British, by analogy, hang computer monitors on ships, that's all the intellectual protection. laughing

      "... artificial intelligence can be invoked"
      The autumn call for artificial intelligence is coming, although a contract in solid cryptocurrency + a title corresponding to the task at hand is possible. Cyber ​​major, counter-intelligence.

    Sycoiea allows crews to identify incoming missiles and provides weapon guidance, allowing them to deal with threats faster than even the most experienced operator.

    Mmmm .....
    When the AI ​​fixes the attacking Russian hypersonic missiles, what will it freeze? Since the Britons do not have the funds in the navy to counter the Zircon)))

      In order for the AI ​​to identify the target, it must be trained, i.e. you need to have at least 2 object flight profiles, less than 000 the system will poorly identify it.
      Where will they get so many Zircon flight profiles? repeat

    The message of the British on the level: "I will win with his intellect .. I will run .. I will run .. I wait .. I will hammer with my brains, in short" - m / f "Like mushrooms and peas fought."

    It is desirable that this AI is not similar to the intelligence of Jane Psaki and others like her. Otherwise, they will not be measured against firewood.

      So the AI ​​will tune in the same way as natural intelligence. Oh damn....
