Office of Naval Research to enable new algorithms that identify and make sense of threat objects

As digital intrusions and physical attacks on critical infrastructure intensify, the Office of Naval Research, Saab and Purdue University are set to collaboratively develop advanced artificial intelligence capabilities that can automatically pinpoint and make sense of threats in complex scenarios to bolster the military’s situational awareness.

ONR awarded a $13 million grant to Saab for its Threat and Situational Understanding with Networked-Online Machine Intelligence (TSUNOMI) program, of which roughly $4.3 million is expected to filter to Purdue as a four-year subcontract.

“There is an urgent need to create technological solutions that allow networks of sensors equipped with sophisticated AI to quickly detect and identify potential threats,” Shreyas Sundaram, Purdue’s Marie Gordon Associate Professor in the Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, said in a statement this week.
