The Royal Navy has announced a partnership between the Royal Marines Commando force and Anduril Industries.
The firm specialises in AI powered solutions.
Autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are essential components of the future military and a focus of NavyX and the Modernising Defence Programme.
“The artificial intelligence and ISR systems from Anduril are game changing technologies for the Royal Marines Future Commando Force. Anduril is now part of the UK NavyX accelerator program to get battle winning technology straight into the hands of our warfighters,” said Colonel Dan Cheeseman, Royal Navy Chief Technology Officer.
“Anduril’s dynamic and highly tailored expertise has enabled a close partnership with 3 Commando Brigade and they are now part of a busy exercise and deployment schedule. These technologies are directly informing how the Royal Marines is transforming itself to radically change how it fights to win on future operations.”
Anduril Industries say it has created Lattice, a groundbreaking software and hardware system that uses cutting-edge AI, machine vision and mesh networking to solve critical defense problems with the goal of saving lives by getting troops in the field more accurate, real-time information.
“Our goal, and the goal of the Royal Navy, is to help the men and women on the front lines complete their missions as successfully and safely as possible,” said Evan Roddenberry, Operations Engineer for Anduril Industries and company lead with the RN.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to help the Royal Marines with this important mission as they modernize in preparation for the battlefields of the future.”
