Northrop Grumman Corporation has been awarded a contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Perceptually-enabled Task Guidance (PTG) program to develop a prototype artificial intelligence (AI) assistant. The prototype will be embedded in an augmented reality (AR) headset to help rotary pilots perform expected and unexpected tasks.
诺斯罗普·格鲁曼公司(Northrop Grumman Corporation)获得了美国国防高级研究计划局(DARPA)感知任务指导(PTG)项目的合同,开发人工智能(AI)助手原型。原型将被嵌入增强现实(AR)耳机中,以帮助旋翼飞行员执行预期和意外任务。
Northrop Grumman, in partnership with the University of Central Florida (UCF), will develop an Operator and Context Adaptive Reasoning Intuitive Assistant (OCARINA) that will support UH-60 Blackhawk pilots, who fly with both visual and instrumented flight, which varies with weather, time of day and other environmental factors.
诺斯罗普·格鲁曼公司与中佛罗里达大学 (UCF) 合作,将开发一个操作员和上下文自适应推理直观助手 (OCARINA),该助手将支持 UH-60“黑鹰”飞行员,他们可以同时进行视觉和仪表飞行,随天气而变化,一天中的时间和其他环境因素。
“The goal of this prototype is to broaden a pilot’s skillset,” said Erin Cherry, senior autonomy program manager, Northrop Grumman. “It will help teach new tasks, aide in the recognition and reduction of errors, improve task completion time, and most importantly, help to prevent catastrophic events.”
诺斯罗普·格鲁曼公司高级自主项目经理埃林·切里(Erin Cherry)表示“这个原型的目标是扩大飞行员的技能,”。“它将有助于指导新任务,帮助识别和减少错误,提高任务完成时间,最重要的是,有助于防止灾难性事件。”
Rotorcraft aircrews face numerous demands particularly when flying in close proximity to buildings, terrain, people and from the threat of adversary RADAR systems. Today, simple warning systems are the most common means for aiding a rotorcraft aircrew, such as auditory alerts to increase altitude. These warning systems are limiting and can induce unanticipated cognitive burdens on pilots. Studies have shown that inattentional blindness to such warnings can occur, often making them ineffective for the aircrew.
DARPA’s PTG program aims to develop AI technologies to help users perform complex mental and physical tasks. The goal is to provide users of PTG AI assistants with wearable sensors that allow the assistant to observe what the user perceives and know what the user knows. Using advanced information processing and an AR interface, the goal of the program is to have the AI assistant provide feedback and guidance through speech and aligned graphics at the right place and time to augment the aircrew.
美国国防高级研究计划局(DARPA)的感知任务指导(PTG)项目旨在开发人工智能技术,帮助用户完成复杂的心理和身体任务。目标是为PTG AI助手的用户提供可穿戴传感器,让助手能够观察用户的感知并知道用户知道什么。利用先进的信息处理和AR接口,该项目的目标是让人工智能助手在正确的时间和地点通过语音和匹配的图形提供反馈和指导,以增强机组人员的能力。
