Call for Innovation – 1 September 2020 (closes 30 September 2020)

General Dynamics Mission Systems–UK is seeking suppliers to identify solutions that would improve the value and availability of information to military users, and to reduce the cognitive burden in consuming multiple disparate sources of data through:

• Applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to the repository of gathered information to improve the quality and time taken to make decisions
• Employing distributed sensor fusion to reduce the network demands required to give a single recognised picture based on multiple concurrent streams of data
• Enabling multiple locations connected by disadvantaged (lower bandwidth, variable connectivity) networks to share essential information
• Increase confidence in the information presented to end users and decision makers in order to operate in a high pressure context.

In order to achieve this, General Dynamics Mission Systems–UK is seeking innovative technology and approaches able to help address the topics described above.
