With an increasingly complex global threat environment, countries are looking to quickly introduce disruptive approaches that counter adversarial threats. Lockheed Martin is exploring ways a piloted aircraft can partner with a team of autonomous systems to offer greater mission flexibility at a low cost: Distributed Teaming.
The company states that Distributed Teaming allows U.S. and allied forces to:
- Increase piloted platform survivability
- Extend the reach of networked sensors
- Inform decision making to enable more effective tactical execution
