‘Directed energy, microwaves can be very effective against swarm attacks’: DoD

Swarm attacks using unmanned vehicles involve transformative technologies that concern the DoD, and according to CTO Dr. Michael Griffin, directed energy and high-powered microwaves can be very effective defenses. “One of the things that I think will be most promising is directed energy in one form or another” The 2018 National Defense Strategy (NDS) foresees that ongoing advances in artificial intelligence “will change society and, ultimately, the character of war.” In response to the AI threat the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) was launched on June 27, 2018. The JAIC is intended to enhance the ability for DoD components to execute new AI initiatives, experiment, and learn within a common framework. Components will initially coordinate each AI initiative that totals more than $15 million annually with the JAIC in order to ensure that the DoD is creating Department-wide advantages.
