The Air Force Research Lab is currently building a completely game-changing technology - Will Roper, Air Force’s assistant secretary for acquisition, technology, and logistics.Skyborg will be an autonomous unmanned air combat vehicle system with open artificial intelligence software architecture and modular hardware. The primary aim of the Skyborg programme is to deploy a modular, fighter-like aircraft that can be used to quickly update and field more complex autonomy iteratively to support the warfighter. Once in action, Skyborg will enable warfighters to adjust the payload and act independently to help an array of missions. In parallel with the AFRL’s Loyal Wingman programme Skyborg is running to develop small, high-performance, which is an effort to combat low-cost drones to fly alongside human-crewed fighter aircraft. AI flight controls and networks could command swarms of such inexpensive drones, a tactic which might overwhelm the defenses of a near-peer adversary, says Ben Tran, Skyborg programme manager. Dr. Will Roper, says the Skyborg program is all about maintaining that coveted American air superiority in the age of AI. It seems that the program is still in the early stages so exactly what Skyborg could look like, what it can do, and how it will go about doing it has yet to be decided, but it is something that the Air Force is looking into.
