L3Harris Technologies Selected by US Air Force for Artificial Intelligence Contract

MELBOURNE, Fla.- The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has awarded L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) a multimillion-dollar contract to develop a software platform that will make it easier for analysts to use artificial intelligence (AI) to identify objects in large data sets.

The U.S. military and intelligence community are inundated with massive amounts of data generated by remote sensing systems. Automated searches using algorithms that can identify pre-loaded images of objects makes pinpointing them easier. However, in order to train these algorithms, real images are often unavailable because they are either rare or do not exist. The L3Harris tool creates sample images used to train search algorithms to identify hard-to-find objects in the data, which will help make it easier for the military and intelligence community to adopt artificial intelligence.

“L3Harris is a premier provider of modeling and simulation capabilities that provide risk reduction for our customers who rely on advanced geospatial systems and data,” said Ed Zoiss, President, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris. “Accelerating the use of AI will help automate analysis of large geospatial data sets so warfighters receive trusted data faster and more efficiently.”
