TheÂ Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has chosenÂ BAE SystemsÂ toÂ create a semi-autonomous technologyÂ that would help military personnel to plan missions.
BAE said TuesdayÂ it will develop theÂ Multi-domain Adaptive Request Service software to facilitate automatic battlespace data collection acrossÂ air, sea, land and space domains.
The company will perform work as part of a $3.1M contract under DARPA’s Adapting Cross-Domain Kill-Webs program that aims to boost the adaptability of operators in changing environments.
The BAE FAST Labs team will collaborate withÂ Carnegie Mellon University on MARSÂ development efforts.
Work will occur at company facilities located inÂ Massachusetts and Virginia.
“Our hope is that MARS will provide warfighters with the ability to automatically leverage the resources they need and quickly determine the most effective way to accomplish their mission no matter what type of battlespace they are operating in,” saidÂ Chris Eisenbies, product line director of the BAE’s autonomy, controlsÂ and estimation group.
