BigBear.ai announced on Wednesday that the company placed first in the Artificial Intelligence and Networks Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (“AINetANTX”) Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) Prize Challenge hosted by the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR).
“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,” said BigBear.ai Chief Technology Officer Brian Frutchey. “We are thrilled that our solution was awarded first prize among a great group of fellow participants across commercial, government and academic fields.”
Project Overmatch is considered a top priority of the U.S. Navy 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 AINetANTX AI Prize Challenge focused on leveraging the latest AI-enabled technologies to address current and future warfighting gaps.
“Overmatch is unleashing the power of the platform with AINetANTX,” said NAVWAR Science and Technology Director Carly Jackson. “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.”
