Earlier this month, JRC volunteered at The 2024 Artificial Intelligence Maritime Maneuver Indiana Collegiate Challenge (AIMM ICC). 

Universities across Indiana had the opportunity to compete and demonstrate the ability to make a fully autonomous LPV with object detection and identification. This opportunity offered a prime experience to prepare students for the important mission work of the Department of Defense.

A partnership between Trine University and Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division has focused on advancing the Artificial Intelligence for Maritime Maneuver (AIMM) effort. This partnership, funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), focuses on an artificial intelligence training simulator and a Low-Profile Vessel (LPV). The partnership works to provide a low-cost, easy-to-build, LPV that can be made fully autonomous for a variety of mission sets. 


The partnership afforded a hands-on experience for students, providing opportunity to test capabilities in a training simulator, modeling real world environments. Their hard work was experienced at this year’s AIMM Indiana Collegiate Challenge. 


 As a continued supporter of STEM initiatives, JRC was proud to support this year’s event.  Providing real world simulated scenarios creates a one-of-a-kind experience to prepare our next generation of defense scientists, engineers, and researchers.
