Chinese engineers simulate air combat at hypersonic speeds using artificial intelligence

Chinese engineers have announced that for the first time they used artificial intelligence to simulate an unusual dogfight. The unusualness of this battle is that it simulated the confrontation of a fighter capable of reaching hypersonic speeds with an enemy aircraft.

As part of the battle, artificial intelligence created by Chinese scientists brought down planes in a simulated air battle, the speed of one of which was Mach 11. In such a situation, AI determined the parameters for hitting a target with an air-launched missile in service with the Air Force of the People's Liberation Army of China. The parameters of this launch turned out to be such that in flight the rocket should be launched in the direction opposite to the movement of the fighter itself.



The computer simulation system itself determines the moment of launch and launches with the possibility of waiting for the approval of this action by the pilot. But since the battles are fought at hypersonic speeds, then, as Chinese engineers note, sooner or later you will have to entrust the artificial intelligence system on board the aircraft with the launch itself. The reason is simple - the pilot is simply not able to launch a rocket in a timely manner in order to hit the target at the hypersonic speed of the aircraft in that fraction of a second when this is possible, if the rocket itself is not changed.

On this basis, it was concluded that if fighters reach hypersonic speeds, then they are likely to become unmanned. Since the brain of an average person (even a trained pilot) cannot cope with the control of an aircraft, with maneuvering at Mach 11.

In the computer model used in the PRC, the enemy plane was moving at a speed of Mach 1,3. The Chinese press reports that the F-35 stealth fighter of the US Air Force, or rather, its computer model, was chosen as a mock enemy.

      Hypersonic air combat ?? I think that a person will not withstand this. AI, probably can. Let's see what the Chinese did.

        I went for a smoke to comprehend (if possible) the information. "hypersound," - fu 35. - how to connect it?

          It was they who planted amers at 1,3M from their Fu-35 ... The hunfuzes themselves (judging by the text) flew as much as 11M (!) Of modesty, of course, they will not die and their quirks are very "promising", t .To. their trough, assembled according to the "duck" J-20 scheme, accelerates to a maximum of 5M. But there - 11M and no less !!!

          Hypersonic air combat ??
          The American reconnaissance SR-71 "Blackbird" had a cruising speed of M = 3,17, which is not hypersound at all (hypersound is when the speed of sound (M) is more than 5 times higher), and at this speed its minimum turning radius exceeded 150 km. I can’t even imagine what the turn of the plane looks like at a speed twice as high. And the word "fight" is completely out of place here.

        What happened will not be shown to us. )
        Ours are also working in terms of weapon control and aircraft piloting by AI... but something is silent about this ... the last messages on this topic were about AI aerobatic training on the Su 57.

      Well, yes, AI is fashionable ...
      Have they connected / use an automated combat process control system, self-learning, for example? Or have they learned to compose an on-board manga computer?

        Fashionable / youthful) True, no one says that all these AI are small, conventional algorithms that work with a large amount of AVAILABLE data and have nothing to do with real AI. The Chinese most likely simply analyzed the available data from the hypersonic aircraft and that’s it. Until there is enough amount of Real data with a bunch of "uncertain" moments that will be in a real battle, all these AI are useless hi

      Was the spherical horse in vacuum taken into account by this model? Or is it a pure theory of Maxwell's Demon type? What pancake maneuvers on hypersonic? Or is it supposed to be a war of robots against robots? And what is its meaning?

        The meaning is the same - to win. why fight? And you can win with robots.

            If my robots defeated your robots, then, for example, there is no one to protect your living area, so my robots with the activated "KILL ALL ORGANICS!!!" mode can enter there! in case you don't sign the peace treaty on my terms.

      with maneuvering at Mach 11.

      And here you can’t really maneuver, inertia! Break in Fig. You can only tremble a little on the course.

        Force of inertia.
        Very correct remark!
        Therefore, it is ridiculous to read about all sorts of maneuvering hypersonic missiles and ICBM warheads. In which they firmly believe.

          If it's funny, don't read it! Delov something!!! laughing
          And if in fact, then we are talking about the physical and biological limits of the human body ... The piece of iron can withstand thermal and dynamic overloads up to 60G, people maximum - 12G. (Cosmonaut A. Kartashov in a centrifuge). Similarly, the warheads of our ICBMs: they maneuver (deviation in course and pitch) so that the kinetic interceptor of the American anti-missile does not hit them. And this is not funny for the Yankees ...
          AHA.

          What's the problem? To "a little flutter on the course" just add hypersonic speed and see what happens

        you strongly interfere with inertia, taking into account the speed of the earth around the sun? if, of course, you want to maneuver along the same trajectories, but at a higher speed)) you, even in a car at a hundred kilometers per hour, cannot repeat those trajectories that you can easily walk on foot. does this not mean that it is not possible to maneuver at 100 km / h in a car?

      It's funny what they say - that the current aircraft (of all armies) - are useless to fight hypersonic aircraft, since they have missiles suspended incorrectly, tk. gotta send them back

      F-35? Supersonic flight of this aircraft is limited to a range of 800 km.
