The AINetANTX AI Prize Challenge focused on supporting Project Overmatch by leveraging the latest in AI-enabled technologies to address current and future warfighting gaps. Project Overmatch is a high priority Navy initiative to modernize Naval warfighting, connecting platforms, weapons and sensors in a robust Naval Operational Architecture (NOA) that integrates with Joint All-Domain Command and Control (“JADC2”) for enhanced Distributed Maritime Operations. The runner up was L3 Harris.
“BigBear.ai is proud to have participated in this competition to support the Navy’s initiative to advance the capabilities of their tactical networks,” said BigBear.ai Chief Technology Officer Brian Frutchey. “This challenge allowed us to demonstrate how our automated course of action assessment AI can assist the Navy in enabling warfighters to make critical decisions quickly in operationally relevant maritime environments. We are thrilled that our solution was awarded first prize among a great group of fellow participants across commercial, government and academic fields.”
“Overmatch is unleashing the power of the platform with AINetANTX,” said NAVWAR Science and Technology Director Carly Jackson. “The team put forward very challenging problem sets and sought to motivate industry leaders to bring their innovations into our platforms and architectures, and to use our data. The participants had less than three months but the results we are seeing are quite compelling. By quickly leveraging the lab infrastructure and expertise resident across the Naval Research and Development Establishment, this new type of digital platform-powered ANTX enables us to identify and field technologies, components, or algorithms at the speed of the threat.”
