And now, she’s spearheading the development of Ascentia, a new tool that’s built on the foundation of ASHM, integrates more data sources, and is cloud based to allow for the use of big data.
DARPA will invest more than $2 billion in over 20 new and existing programs collectively called the “AI Next” campaign. Through AI Next, DARPA is exploring ways to advance the state-of-the-art in AI, pushing beyond second-wave machine learning techniques and toward “contextual reasoning and adaptation” capabilities.
Abaco Systems Inc. is launching a new family of avionics devices for test and simulation, development, and dataloading that feature Thunderbolt 3 interfaces. The new portable, high-speed, low-latency avionics devices – RCEI-830A-TB and QPM-1553-TB – are designed for a broad range of avionics applications and include Thunderbolt 3-to-PMC/XMC interfacing with ARINC 429 and MIL-STD-1553 protocols.
Officials at GE Aviation and Teradata are expanding their partnership to provide airlines with a framework that combines Teradata’s high-performance analytics in the cloud from with GE Aviation’s edge-connectivity services. Markets and Markets Research estimates the aviation analytics market is a $2.16 billion industry that will grow to an estimated $4.23 billion by 2021.
(KAC) officials in Seoul, South Korea, needed a bigdata management platform harnessing Internet of Things technologies (IoT) to help increase airport flow efficiency and passenger throughput at the 14 airports KAC manages in Korea.
PSMA Australia, an organization offering geospatial data to public and private institutions across the continent, selected DigitalGlobe to produce data layers to develop Geoscape, a commercial location intelligence dataset about the Australian-built environment designed to enable end users to make business decisions. ...PSMA Australia, an organization offering geospatial data to public and private institutions across the continent, selected DigitalGlobe to produce data layers to develop Geoscape, a commercial location intelligence dataset about the Australian-built environment designed to enable end users to make business decisions.
The Auto-Tracking Antenna System, a new portable, ground-to-air antenna from Persistent Systems LLC in New York, incorporates aircraft into the Wave Relay mobile ad hoc network (MANET) to boost connectivity, communications, and distribution of critical sensor data, including full-motion video, on the networked battlefield. The precisely aimed tracking system works with the MPU5 radio and Wave Relay MANET to optimize connectivity and reliable communications to enable manned and unmanned aircraft to communicate further than ever before, officials say.
Gore & Associates is expanding its family of high-speed data cables for the aerospace industry to meet the industry’s challenges to improve pilot communication and passenger in-flight entertainment while reducing downtime for maintenance and decreasing operating costs.
The MQ-25 is the U.S. Navy’s first operational carrier-based UAS and is designed to provide a much-needed, low-cost refueling capability to aircraft like the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, Boeing EA-18 Growler, and Lockheed Martin F-35C fighters.
Rolls-Royce officials in London are optimizing maintenance, service, and product development using data gleaned from its Trent aircraft engines in service with airlines, with the help of global enterprise applications company IFS in Linkoping, Sweden. ...Rolls-Royce employs IFS Maintenix to exchange data with airlines operating its Trent 1000, Trent XWB, and Trent 7000 engines.
This month, during an ongoing review of military training for rotary-wing aircraft, the GAO published a report highlighting gaps in the Department of Defense’s approach for collecting, reporting, and analyzing aviation mishap data to inform aviation risk-management decisions.
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) officials have released the first images from two unmanned rovers that landed safely on the surface of asteroid Ryugu just days ago. The compact MINERVA-II1 rovers, Rover-1A and Rover-1B, separated from the Hayabusa2 spacecraft on Sept. 21 at 13:06 Japan Standard Time (JST) and landed on Ryugu with a bounce.
Airbus Aerial uses a unique combination of satellites, manned aircraft and rotorcraft, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) together with data analytics technology and an artificial intelligence (AI), or machine learning, platform to help organizations supporting recovery efforts better understand and react to the storm as it rolled across the southeastern U.S. into the Gulf of Mexico.
Engineers at Martin UAV are incorporating Wave Relay mobile ad hoc network (MANET) technology from Persistent Systems into the company’s V-BAT small, vertical takeoff-and-landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
