Lockheed, Red Hat to Advance Artificial Intelligence on Military Platforms

Lockheed Martin has partnered with American technology firm Red Hat to enable small military platforms to handle increased artificial intelligence (AI) workloads.

According to a press release, Lockheed will utilize the Red Hat Device Edge in integrating advanced software on small platforms such as the Stalker unmanned aerial system.

Some small military systems use software too large and complex to handle. With the Red Hat Device Edge, small platforms will have updated AI-based computer vision capabilities to accurately classify military targets.

The technology will also help the platform provide more useful intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance data for improved situational awareness.

“With Red Hat Device Edge, Lockheed Martin is leading the infusion of cutting-edge commercial technology into military capabilities that deliver advanced solutions to our customers,” Lockheed vice president Justin Taylor said.

“Unlocking these AI technologies can help national security decision-makers stay ahead of adversaries, enabling a safer and more secure world.”

Once successful, Lockheed Martin plans to expand the use of the Red Hat Device Edge for multiple domains, including land, sea, air, space, and cyber.
