PhysicsAI awarded DARPA contract for Air Combat Evolution (ACE) Technical Area 1

U.S. military researchers are asking artificial intelligence (AI) experts at PhysicsAI in Pacifica, Calif., to develop AI algorithms to enable future experimental high-performance unmanned combat aircraft to formulate teams of manned and unmanned jet fighters.

Officials of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., announced a $2.3 million contract to PhysicsAI earlier this month for the Air Combat Evolution (ACE) Technical Area 1: Build Combat Autonomy project.

The Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program is sponsored by DARPA’s Strategic Technology Office (STO).
