NAVWAR Launches Phase II of Project Overmatch Prize Challenges

Project Overmatch is a high priority Department of the Navy initiative aimed at connecting platforms, weapons, and sensors together in a robust Naval Operational Architecture (NOA) that integrates with Joint All-Domain Command and Control for enhanced Distributed Maritime Operations. Critical to Project Overmatch is the development of networks, infrastructure, data architecture, tools and analytics that support the operational and developmental environment that will enable sustained maritime dominance for years to come.

To deliver this modernized network, the AINetANTX Prize Challenges are open to all U.S. citizens, including commercial, government and academic individuals or teams, lowering the barrier to entry and increasing the competitive landscape to identify the best solutions possible. NAVWAR selected a total of 14 participants from more than 50 potential applicants. After successfully completing the Phase I white paper review, participants have moved to Phase II where they will demonstrate their solutions in a simulation-based environment that will employ tactically relevant scenarios in operationally relevant conditions.

“Invited participants have been asked to bring their technologies and integrate into our digital warfare platforms and simulators,” said Carly Jackson, NAVWAR Science and Technology Director. “While we did allow participants to integrate into our labs in the 2019 ANTX EAST/WEST, this wasn’t a requirement. We are constantly evolving our methods and tools, and these platforms and environments are now core to the AINetANTX evaluation process.”
