Northrop Grumman Corporation is collaborating with EpiSci to further develop advanced, trusted autonomous tactical solutions for the United States and its allies.

EpiSci’s TacticalAI software will integrate into Northrop Grumman’s aeronautics system architecture to accelerate the delivery of advanced autonomous solutions.

Using the U.S. government’s open-architecture design, Northrop Grumman’s autonomy solutions are able to incorporate third-party collaborative platform technologies that allow uncrewed aircraft systems to adapt to changing mission requirements and provide flexibility to military commanders in complex environments.

Tom Pieronek, Chief Technology Officer and Vice President, research and technology, Aeronautics Systems, Northrop Grumman, said; “Northrop Grumman collaborates with innovative small businesses, like EpiSci, to help meet the needs of our customers. Collaboration is one way to rapidly bring new capabilities to the warfighter while building upon Northrop Grumman’s decades of autonomy experience to create distinct advantages over adversarial threats.”

Dr. Dan Javorsek, chief technology officer, EpiSci, added; “We look forward to working with Northrop Grumman. Integrating our software into their hardware and control systems, we can better deliver trusted autonomous solutions that are critical for our warfighter’s mission success.”
