Air Force Seeks Autonomous Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle Concepts

The U.S. Air Force is conducting market research into industry capabilities that can support the deployment of autonomous unmanned combat air vehicle.

In a FedBizOpps notice posted Friday, the service said it will also conduct a “concept of operations” analysis for the Skyborg program, which aims to field a fighter-like aircraft platform equipped with a modular architecture designed to accomodate payload adjustments.

The project is intended to address an immediate operational requirement and will directly support initiatives stated in the Air Force’s 2018 Artificial Intelligence Strategy and the White House’s 2019 executive order on Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence.

USAF seeks input from companies that have the potential to address the program’s design, development, prototyping, testing and production requirements.

The military branch will accept responses through April 15.
