Safran Electronics & Defense has launched its Advanced Cognitive Engine (ACE) artificial intelligence system, built to integrate AI capabilities into all Safran Electronics & Defense products.

ACE is set to deliver enhanced situational awareness, decision support, and reduced cognitive load for forces in the field. 

The system will improve target detection, classification and identification capabilities by correcting for environmental effects, such as atmospheric turbulence and low light conditions. 

Other functions such as advanced tracking and automatic target detection will help users perform missions by reducing their cognitive burden. Each capability can be adapted to specific environments — flat open landscape, desert, jungle, etc. — for optimum performance. 

These combined capabilities, called “ACE on board”, will be integrated into all equipment. This includes land vehicles, aircraft and naval sights, as well as portable optronics products. ACE will also integrate on Safran Electronics & Defense drones and robotic systems, enabling operators to manage and operate their fleets more efficiently. 

Initially available on an external processor, these new capabilities will be built into equipment via dedicated electronics. The ACE solution will benefit from twice yearly updates to keep pace with evolving operational realities.

Safran Electronics & Defense assert that all ACE capabilities keep the user at the heart of the decision and action loop. The ACE system was officially launched at Eurosatory 2024, Paris.

Alexandre Ziegler, EVP Defense Division, Safran Electronics & Defense, commented; “It’s important but also quite natural for us to be talking about AI at this year’s event. By capitalizing on our expertise in this field, coupled with our high-tech imaging systems, we’re offering significant advances in performance for our customers.”
