BAE Advances Battle Management Software Development Project With DARPA, AFRL - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBAE Systems has teamed up with the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to further develop a software platform that works to facilitate communications between manned and unmanned aerial systems in contested environments, C4ISRNet reported Friday.

The Distributed Battle Management software is designed to provide pilots situational awareness through the use of artificial intelligence methods to facilitate real-time analysis of large data volumes.

The DBM platform works to process mission-planning data and Blue Force Tracking information.

“We are trying to manage information flow. You want to get the right information to the people who need it, at the time they need it,“ Jarrod Kallberg, a senior engineer at BAE, said of the DBM platform.

DARPA, AFRL and BAE plan to conduct a series of field and laboratory tests in support of the DBM program that is expected to run through July 2019.

BAE announced in February that AFRL and DARPA carried out an 11-day flight test of the DBM software through seven live flights to demonstrate the capability of the platform to provide situational understanding and coordination support between manned and aerial drones in communication-deprived environments.
