The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has conducted an on-ramp exercise with Raytheon Technologies to test the company’s battle management software with the U.S. Air Force’s command-and-control platform.

Raytheon’s intelligence and space business took part in DARPA’s On-Ramp 2 exercise and demonstrated the Anytime Reasoning and Analysis for Kill-Web Negotiation and Instantiation across Domains software to support the Advanced Battle Management System, Raytheon said Tuesday.

ARAKNID, which was developed by Raytheon's BBN Technologies business, worked to manage data on various threats in real-time to help ABMS execute commands involving weapons, sensors and fighter aircraft during the test.

“Important decisions are ultimately made by a real person, but automating machine-to-machine interactions is a significant tactical advantage when seconds and minutes matter,” said Brad Tousley, president of BBN Technologies.

The recent exercise builds on ARAKNID's selection for DARPA's Adapting Cross-Domain Kill-Webs initiative.
