COBALT, Thales' advanced collaborative combat system, is paving the way for real-time decision-making and communication on the battlefield. With technologically advanced enemies using AI, robotics, drones, and electronic warfare, land forces need to stay ahead of the curve to maintain their edge in the field. COBALT provides a set of services and decision-making aids that enable real-time collaboration for land forces, ensuring optimal efficiency and better outcomes in the face of new threats.
This combat system also aims to facilitate the elaboration of operational scenarios to validate our communication systems in order to test them synthetically in operational conditions.
We are looking for French and Canadian startups.
As part of the COBALT system, your company will develop cutting-edge simulation services to enable real-time collaboration for land forces. You will work with us to:
With your expertise in plan simulation, course-of-action simulation comparison/validation, and AI algorithms to generate models of enemy brigade behaviors, you will help us build a comprehensive solution that provides services to command and control tactical units, as well as to observe, protect, decide, and act. This solution should take into account the exploration of the consequences to identify the critical cases.
We want also our operational users to be able to make decisions quicker with the help of AI and be able to understand the reasoning behind a particular decision through natural language and/or reference to source data.
In addition, as AI is becoming more prevalent in our adversaries' systems, we need to equip our sensors/effector systems and decision-making systems with deception technology to deceive an AI adversary.
Moreover, we need to augment our detection capabilities with open source intelligence to enable multi-source data fusion of heterogeneous data, which will improve the detection accuracy and reliability of intelligence gathered on the field.
We are also interested in tracking and analyzing the movements and activities of enemy forces, transforming our sensor information into redforce tracking information, and then automatically proposed to be ingested into the system and shared by all units on the battlefield.
