The landscape of modern warfare is rapidly evolving, and with it comes the demand for cutting-edge technologies that can enhance the capabilities of mechanized forces. In response to this need, the Ordinance Factory Chandigarh has taken a significant step forward by issuing an Expression of Interest (EOI) for Artificial Intelligence (AI) Enabled Manned & Unmanned Tanks & Drones Teaming System.
The EOI is a call for collaboration with potential partners for the design, development, proof of concept, production, and supply of AI-enabled manned and unmanned teaming systems for tanks and drones. This initiative aims to create a state-of-the-art AI-driven platform that will revolutionize the way mechanized forces operate in varied terrains and dynamic environments.
Modern warfare requires detailed reconnaissance and real-time information for tank crews to navigate and make informed decisions in complex and challenging landscapes. The proposed AI-enabled teaming system seeks to address this need by combining the capabilities of manned tanks and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones.
One of the primary objectives of this collaboration is to develop an autonomous UAV capable of operating both during the day and night, providing critical real-time information to tank crews. The UAV will be equipped with advanced AI capabilities, enabling it to analyze and detect objects of interest and potential targets. This innovative technology will empower the tank crews with invaluable situational awareness, enhancing their operational effectiveness.
To achieve seamless coordination and teamwork between the manned tanks and the UAV, the micro-UAV will be designed to take off directly from the tank turret. This autonomous operation will allow the UAV to fly ahead and relay vital information to the tank crews, enabling them to navigate through challenging terrains and hostile environments with confidence.
