New systems in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) technology for domestic response were tested by managers of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab (JHU-APL) and the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center’s (JAIC) Humanitarian Assistance Disaster Relief (HADR) program.
The testing took place Nov. 2 at an Indiana Unclassified Processing, Assessment and Dissemination (UPAD) site at the 181st Intelligence Wing.
Intelligence Analysts assigned to the Indiana Air National Guard’s 181st Intelligence Wing, 137th Intelligence Squadron UPAD, were chosen to assist in new developmental programs expected to be launched in the next year. This was the first time any of these programs or systems were tested by a UPAD site and UPAD analysts.
“The AI technology uses commercial satellite static imagery, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) imagery, and MQ-9 full-motion video (FMV). Utilization of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery is in the works as well,” said Tech. Sgt. Keaton Robertson, a supervisor with the Indiana UPAD.
