EPE has announced a partnership with Shield AI, a fast-growing defence technology company building Artificial Intelligence (AI) pilots for aircraft, to deliver its next era of AI to the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The partnership between Australia's EPE and Shield AI from the United States will bring the drone named by joint US and Israeli forces as the 'most mission capable indoor drone' to the region.
Shield AI’s Nova 2 drone uses state-of-the-art path planning and computer vision algorithms to autonomously navigate complex subterranean and multi-story buildings without GPS, communications or a human pilot.
EPE is providing leading technologies into Defence’s Experimentation Teams in the area of Human Machine Teaming, in addition to the delivery of five Defence Innovation Hub Projects which developed innovative solutions to counter emerging threats.
Shield AI and EPE share a mission to protect our soldiers which is underpinned by a commitment to innovative solutions.
EPE will feature the Nova 2 at the Army Robotics Exposition (ARX) in Adelaide this week as part of the Chief of Army Symposium.
