Students from UCSD visit March ARB to help incorporate Artificial Intelligence into MQ-9 Platform
A pilot assigned to the 492nd Attack Squadron instructs students from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in an MQ-9 simulator on March Air Reserve Base in California on Feb 17, 2023. The National Guard Bureau facilitated a collaboration between UCSD and members of the 163d Attack Wing in an effort to incorporate artificial intelligence to improve MQ-9 technology and provide a centralized location where real-time video and data can be shared instantaneously across organizations. Named Project Theia, the aim of the program is to save lives by reducing response times for first responders during wildfires and other natural disasters (U.S. Air National Guard photograph by Staff Sgt.

The theme of the 2024 Department of the Air Force (DAF) Modeling & Simulation (M&S) Summit is “Training in a Digital World”, which highlights the Department of the Air Force’s drive to upskill personnel through digital training. The goal of the M&S Summit is to gather Air Force and Space Force M&S experts to learn about new M&S initiatives and techniques, network across military services and with industry experts, and to hear our technological leaders’ perspectives on how M&S can transition more training from the real world to digital.

The 2024 DAF M&S Summit will provide a forum for shared information, ideas, and connection of M&S professionals across the DoD, industry, academia, and international partners. The three-day summit agenda includes:

  • Keynote Speakers from Military, Government, and Industry Leaders
  • Panel Discussions and Q&A sessions
  • Track Session Presentation Focus Areas
  • VIP Tour for Distinguished Visitors
  • M&S Industry Exhibition Hall
  • Classified M&S Briefing Sessions
