+ - SPAM: DARPA advances AI program for air traffic control

Submitted by

coondoggie writes "The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has approved the second phase of artificial intelligence technology that will help automate military air traffic control. The Generalized Integrated Learning Architecture (GILA) system, developed by Lockheed Martin's Advanced Technology Laboratories under a $22 million, 48-month contract, is intended to help the Air Force in particular keep airspace operating safely with increased air traffic and the advent of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and other airborne weapons. Air operation centers use what's known as Airspace Control Orders to help manage airspace. Improper or unclear orders endanger passengers, pilots and people on the ground. Lockheed Martin's GILA will help create and control these orders by learning flight controllers' tasks — often by using only one example, Lockheed claims."
