AFRL to host OpML Industry Day

On July 23, the Air Force Research Lab released an OpML BAA Industry Day announcement. Registration closes July 31 for the August 2 event.

The Air Force Research Laboratory/Information Directorate will be conducting an Industry Day on 02 August 2019 regarding upcoming Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) FA8750-19-S-7014 for the Operationalizing Machine Learning for Command and Control (OpML C2) program. The purpose of this meeting is to provide interested companies/entities with an overview of the problem space that the OpML program is attempting to address. This meeting hopes to address specific areas of interest, promote an early exchange of information, and provide an opportunity for both the Government and Industry to gather more information prior to the request for white papers that will be published on the Federal Business Opportunity web site.

The Autonomous Command and Control Core Technical Competency (AC2 CTC) is seeking to identify, develop, and evaluate novel applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to support operational aspects of Command and Control (C2). Our initial analyses considered wide-ranging applications of ML in the air combat and air mobility operations centers, as well as interesting applications for air battle management C2. The analyses have narrowed down the space of paired operational applications and their potential ML solutions to a manageable set of specifications without precluding the proposal of other unique and novel approaches. The sought-out solutions primarily focus on the problems of planning, operational and tactical level decision making, and operational execution management. The development of prototype applications, respective use-cases, workflows, and data requirements are critical to establish the viability and usefulness of the assessed candidate applications for assessment in an operational setting.
