The UK recently revealed a ground-breaking tech demo of Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities in partnership with their AUKUS allies. This trial saw a wide range of air and ground vehicles tasked with testing target identification capabilities as the allies cope with what is becoming an increasingly complex battlefield.

The AUKUS AI and Autonomy trial was held at Upavon in Wiltshire in April and demonstrated AI algorithms working in a mission-tailored adaptive capability. The collaborative swarm of drones detected and tracked military targets during the trial, allowing for rapid driving of operational capability.

The Pentagon reported that the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia successfully demonstrated using artificial intelligence and autonomy under the Advanced Capabilities pillar (Pillar III). This trilateral partnership will continue developing advanced technologies to ensure that all three nations remain ahead of any potential adversaries.
