BAE Systems has launched a new center to advance the use of robotic process automation and machine learning tools to support national security missions.

The Robotic Operations Center builds on the partnership between BAE and UiPath and seeks to support U.S. defense and intelligence agencies by deploying software robots designed to automate repetitive tasks and information technology operations and generate actionable intelligence from data, BAE said Monday.

“ROC streamlines IT operations, helping customers to take advantage of the vast sea of information to improve responsiveness while reducing cost and security risk,” Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE’s intelligence solutions business.

The new center will implement governance and security measures for unattended and attended bots as well as standardize and offer best practices when it comes to the use of software bots, which can be fielded in a cloud platform to automate tasks.

“RPA technology allows for automation of legacy and disparate IT systems, integration of business processes, and structuring of large data sets, which can improve efficiency and reduce operating costs,” said Jon Dorn, acting chief technology officer of BAE’s intelligence and security sector.
