Artificial Intelligence Systems Integration Support Innovative Technology at NSWCDD
May 5, 2021
IMAGE: Dr. Jeffrey Solka is the Senior Scientific and Technical Manager for Naval Data Sciences at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD). He also serves as the Naval Sea Systems Command Knowledge Point Champion for artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) systems, quantum sciences and digital sciences. Solka oversees AI/ML integration for various projects and leads AI/ML science and technology efforts. As part of a Naval Innovative Science Engineering initiative, Solka, Igor Shtau, lead artificial intelligence and machine learning engineer and Dr. Chris Weiland, acting chief scientist, discuss the integration of a Nvidia Jetson and optical targeting payload onto a manufactured quadcopter at NSWCDD. “The project is examining the effects of machine learning techniques on the kill chain and how these algorithms can be effectively verified and validated,” said Solka.

NSWCDD Engineers Revolutionize Combat Training with TRACER Augmented Reality

IMAGE: 190613-N-PO203-0259 CHESAPEAKE, Virginia (Jun. 13, 2019) A Sailor assigned to the Center for Security Forces detachment in Chesapeake, Va., demonstrate the Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG) TechSolutions-sponsored Tactically Reconfigurable Artificial Combat Enhanced Reality (TRACER) system. TechSolutions partnered with Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division to develop the TRACER package, which consists of a virtual-reality headset, a backpack, a state-of-the-art simulated weapon designed to deliver realistic recoil, and a software package that creates multiple and adaptable simulation scenarios for security personnel to experience. ONRG TechSolutions allows Sailors and Marines to submit technology requests directly to the development community for rapid response prototyping. (U.S. Navy photo by John F. Williams)
