Webinar
DARPA will host a Proposers Day in support of recently announced BAA HR001120S0028, Air Combat Evolution (ACE) Technical Area 1 (TA-1) on March 26, 2020, via webinar from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, Eastern Time (ET). The purpose of this Proposers Day is to provide information on TA-1 of the ACE program; promote additional discussion on this topic; address questions from potential proposers; and provide a forum for potential proposers to interact with potential teaming partners.

The Strategic Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program and to facilitate teaming. The goal of ACE is to automate air-to-air combat, enabling reaction times at machine speeds and freeing pilots to concentrate on the larger air battle. Turning aerial dogfighting over to AI is less about dogfighting, which should be rare in the future, and more about giving pilots the confidence that AI and automation can handle a high-end fight.

The third and final competition in DARPA’s AlphaDogfight Trials will take place virtually August 18-20 instead of in person due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Participating teams and audience members will watch online as artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms control simulated F-16 fighters in aerial combat, culminating in a matchup on August 20 between the top AI and an experienced Air Force fighter pilot flying a virtual reality F-16 simulator.
The ACE program seeks to increase trust in combat autonomy by using human-machine collaborative dogfighting as its challenge problem. This also serves as an entry point into complex human-machine collaboration. ACE will apply existing artificial intelligence technologies to the dogfight problem in experiments of increasing realism. In parallel, ACE will implement methods to measure, calibrate, increase, and predict human trust in combat autonomy performance.
