Promoting Innovative R&D for Today and the Future
Investments cultivated and managed by the Technology Office support the development of new Mission Critical Technology for national security. Impactful projects in Emerging Technology, many of which take a decade or more to come to fruition, push the very frontiers of technology development. We also focus on fostering Innovation and Collaboration, both of which are essential to sustaining long-term technical excellence and relevance. The Artificial Intelligence Group, under the direction of the Technology Office, was recently established to advance R&D in AI being conducted across all Laboratory areas to expand capabilities to meet a broad spectrum of needs.

We are building a toolbox of autonomous functions for unmanned aerial systems to improve UAS missions and alleviate burden on human operators in the field.
The Laboratory is working to develop a novel seabed-mapping capability that can achieve high-resolution imaging and a fast coverage rate.
We are developing scalable tools and techniques to accelerate the design and evaluation of reliable, mission-ready artificial intelligence systems.
Teams of autonomous systems learn collaboration strategies by hypothesizing how the team would perform if one system followed alternative trajectories or was eliminated from the team.
