Can Palmer Luckey Reinvent the U.S. Defense Industry?

Posted by in category: military

Military tech startup Anduril Industries is shaking up the U.S. defense industry as it is one of the few privately held technology companies finding success as a Defense Department contractor. But what makes the company’s software so unique that it is being used across multiple branches of the U.S. military and in both the Russia-Ukraine War and Israel-Hamas War?

WSJ explains how this startup is operating in order to disrupt the U.S. defense industry.

China, US agree on AI risks, but can they see past military tech rivalry?

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

US-China consensus on regulating the military use of AI mentions no specifics, amid challenge posed by the lack of a common definition for such systems Mutual vulnerability could still push the rival powers to create a common set of binding regulations, observers say.

The AI military race is led by American tech. Is there a challenger?

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

America calls and raises the AI bet with the B-21 Raider stealth bomber.


U.S Air Force.

This incident, whose timing peculiarly lined up with Chinese Premier Xi Jinping’s visit to the United States, caused China to suddenly change tact and want to talk about nukes and AI.

The Military’s Big Bet on Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI, space

Number 4 Hamilton Place is a be-columned building in central London, home to the Royal Aeronautical Society and four floors of event space. In May, the early 20th-century Edwardian townhouse hosted a decidedly more modern meeting: Defense officials, contractors, and academics from around the world gathered to discuss the future of military air and space technology.

Things soon went awry. At that conference, Tucker Hamilton, chief of AI test and operations for the United States Air Force, seemed to describe a disturbing simulation in which an AI-enabled drone had been tasked with taking down missile sites. But when a human operator started interfering with that objective, he said, the drone killed its operator, and cut the communications system.

The Interplanetary War

Posted by in categories: military, space

Space Warfare concepts from science fiction often involve war between planets, and we will discuss the science of that, and war inside a fully colonized solar system or Dyson Swarm.

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt: AI guardrails “aren’t enough”

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

Guardrails AI companies add to their products to prevent them from causing harm “aren’t enough” to control AI capabilities that could endanger humanity within five to ten years, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt told Axios’ Mike Allen on Tuesday.

The big picture: Interviewed at Axios’ AI+ Summit in Washington, D.C., Schmidt compared the development of AI to the introduction of nuclear weapons at the end of the Second World War.

Hyperwar Ascendant: The Global Race For Autonomous Military Supremacy

Posted by in categories: drones, military, robotics/AI

In my 2015 exploration with General John R. Allen on the concept of Hyperwar, we recognized the potential of artificial intelligence to unalterably change the field of battle. Chief among the examples of autonomous systems were drone swarms, which are both a significant threat and a critical military capability. Today, Hyperwar seems to be the operative paradigm accepted by militaries the world over as a de facto reality. Indeed, the observe-orient-decide-act (OODA) loop is collapsing. Greater autonomy is being imbued in all manner of weapon systems and sensors. Work is ongoing to develop systems that further decrease reaction times and increase the mass of autonomous systems employed in conflict. This trend is highlighted potently by the U.S. Replicator initiative and China’s swift advancements in automated manufacturing and missile technologies.

The U.S. Replicator Initiative: A Commitment to Autonomous Warfare?

The Pentagon’s “Replicator” initiative is a strategic move to counter adversaries like China by rapidly producing “attritable autonomous systems” across multiple domains. Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks emphasized the need for platforms that are “small, smart, cheap, and many,” planning to produce thousands of such systems within 18 to 24 months. The Department of Defense, under this initiative, is developing smaller, more intelligent, and cost-effective platforms, a move that aligns with the creation of a Hyperwar environment.

World’s largest AI robot to reduce aircraft inspection costs

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

Norse Atlantic Airways is teaming up with Avinxt to use their giant robot fueled by green tech and artificial intelligence to perform functions like de-icing, washing, and even giving the engines a good scrub.

The bonus? Regular exterior washing doesn’t just keep the planes looking sharp but cuts down on air resistance, saving up to two percent on fuel burn.

Avinxt will start building the robot in 2024, and will be able to handle big passenger planes, smaller private planes, and even military aircraft, announced Norse in a press release.
