The Army is hosting an industry event next month for automated targeting technology it seeks to develop for ground combat vehicles.

Interested vendors are invited to Ft. Belvoir, VA, on March 12 and 13 to discuss available computer vision, artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies that could be used for the Advanced Targeting and Lethality Automated System, or ATLAS, program.

The Army is seeking "the capability to acquire, identify, and engage targets at least [three times] faster than the current manual process," according to a notice posted this week.

"The ATLAS will integrate advanced sensors, processing, and fire-control capabilities into a weapon system," the notice states.

The service is seeking white papers on image processing, data collection, fire control, combat vehicle integration and imaging sensors.
