Charles River to Develop AI-Assisted Intelligence Collection Manager for Army

1 min read

Charles River Analytics has received U.S. Army funding to improve the planning of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance efforts using artificial intelligence optimization techniques and human-machine design best practices.

Achieving Federated ISR Collection through Intelligent Optimization and Natural AI supported Decision Operations (AFICIONADO) is aimed at improving the Army’s existing manned process of managing intelligence collection missions, Charles River said Monday.

Individual collection managers can use AFICIONADO unified workspace to receive AI engine-generated plans that recommend optimized ways of meeting mission goals while enterprise users can utilize the shared system to coordinate and improve strategies by units across the service branch.

It will serve as a catalyst for changing the current, largely manual workflow, which is extremely laborious, into a streamlined, collaborative one,” noted Tyler Mayer, Charles River scientist and AFICIONADO principal investigator.

Development of AFICIONADO could inform the advancement of resource allocation optimization in the utilities market and the wider private sector in the future.
