The event was hosted by the British Army at the Defence BattleLab where military personnel and industry teams collaboratively developed leading-edge software and AI solutions to solve real-world challenges faced by the U.K. Field Army. Other winning teams were from well-established companies: Babcock, Adarga, Maxar and PA Consulting.
Atreides’ won for its AI-driven, high-fidelity web application to identify and recommend locations for sighting communication antenna for the Army in difficult and hostile terrains. The Atreides’ solution draws on data-driven models, machine learning and the international NATO doctrine of intelligence management requirements.
