US commanders will share all-domain information to AI

WASHINGTON, (BM) – The Pentagon conducted a unique exercise under the US Northern Command’s auspices (NorthCom), which revealed the potential and capabilities of artificial intelligence and its integration into the military. This news was announced on April 1 by the US Department of Defense.

Air Force General Glenn D. VanHerk says the exercise showed the autonomous interaction between the six major domains – underwater, space, cyberspace, air, land, sea, and simultaneous interaction with artificial intelligence. “What we were looking to do is show the incredible value of information and how information can be used today,” the general said, adding that 11 combat teams took part in the exercise, which included two rivals.

According to Glenn D. VanHerk, such a relationship between the six major domains of American defense and machines with artificial intelligence provides an incredible opportunity for the timely transmission of data and information. In this way, says the general, domain commanders make decisions at the “president” level.

“You can use it in day-to-day competition; you can use it in crisis for de-escalation and, obviously, in conflict for ‘defeat or deny,’ if needed,” the general said.

BulgarianMilitary.com reminds us that as early as 2020, the United States gradually began testing and integrating robotic and autonomous machines and devices into artificial intelligence into the ranks of its military units. “I did [this exercise] with the intent to bring all the combatant commands together to place a demand signal… on the department to move quickly down the path of domain awareness, information dominance, and decision superiority,” VanHerck said.

Need for global integration

The program under which NorthCom conducted this exercise is called Joint All-Domain Command and Control – JADCC. Air Force General Glenn D. VanHerk says the United States must move fast, not slow, in this race not to waste unnecessary years building the project’s actual capabilities.

The exercise showed the need for global integration, which the military cannot ignore, given that conflicts are not as regional as international, the commander added.

NorthCom is actively involved in the US fight against the spreading coronavirus KOVID-19. The State Department confirms that NorthCom will appoint more service members to provide the necessary assistance in vaccinating the population and the US military.

But US Northern Command is not only involved locally. The State Department says there are currently nearly 25 military teams and 3,562 troops worldwide available to help vaccinate in the countries they are stationed in.
