Raytheon BBN to Model Brain Capabilities for Potential Battlefield Application

Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) wholly owned subsidiary BBN Technologies has won $3 million to explore new methods of modeling the brain’s ability to make sense of large amounts of haphazard, partial information.

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, which is overseen by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provided the funding as part of the Integrated Cognitive-Neuroscience Architectures for Understanding Sensemaking program.

The research could help analyze fast-moving battlefield video, audio and text data quickly and accurately.

“BBN has a history of tackling tough challenges and producing transformative solutions that make us more secure, ” said Rusty Bobrow, ICARUS principal investigator at Raytheon BBN Technologies. “IARPA’s ICARUS program explores groundbreaking approaches to sensemaking and will help maintain U.S. intelligence superiority.”
