Pentagon’s Silicon Valley-based innovation unit seeks autonomous USVs and AI data fusion tech to counter drone swarm

The Silicon Valley-based Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) operated by the US Department of Defense is seeking small unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) that are production-ready, inexpensive, and expeditionary, in addition to being capable of collaborative intercept via specialized software and/or hardware. In a separate project, the DIU is also looking for proposals that leverage deep learning to accelerate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) swarm detection, identification, and tracking.
