BAE Systems invests £20 million in AR and AI to develop future naval combat strategies


has recently made an investment as part of its commitment to innovate and deliver the best systems and products to tackle evolving threats and deliver the most effective solutions to customers. The firm will be investing £20 in AR and AI that will be used in warships to optimise their ability.

The investment will see innovations that will aid naval personnel to enhance their decision making in the battlespace, allowing them to counter threats. A part of the investment will be utilised to incorporate AR into naval ships’ bridges via products like wearable AR glasses. This will empower an Officer of the Watch to work outside of the operations room and still have the ability to see and access tactical situation and other vital information from any part of the vessel.

The company is also improving its ‘shared infrastructure’ technology, which it develops on behalf of the Royal Navy, by releasing ‘open systems’ architecture that will make a ship’s combat systems to be quickly reconfigured to fulfil the requirements of specific operations.

A market by issued this month titled “Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Market to 2025 – Global Analysis and Forecasts by Technology, Sensors & Components and Applications” states that since technology has developed a lot over the last decade, it has transformed the way people think, interact and make decisions. AR and VR are still in their nascent stage, the notes, and have therefore restricted reach to different requirements of the customers or enterprises.
