Leonardo DRS' facility in Cypress, California, will operate as a center of excellence to develop artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies for the U.S. government.

The facility, which has served as Advanced Engineering CoE under Leonardo DRS' electro-optical and infrared systems business, offers expertise in technologies applicable to multiple domains such as land and space, the company said Monday.

The CoE is part of the Leonardo Laboratories initiative that aims to establish a global network of research and development sites.

The Leonardo Labs effort tackles the areas of AI and high-performance computing, materials and space technologies, electronics and sensing and aircraft technologies.

The laboratories will study applications in AI, autonomous systems, high-performance calculation, quantum computing and other modern technology topics relevant to customers.

John Baylouny, chief operating officer of Leonardo DRS, said the company's AI and ML R&D can help government customers and U.S. universities sustain a competitive advantage.
