Mike Madsen, director of Strategic Engagement at DIU, outlines the office’s AI efforts, and how they’ll help the Navy and other military branches perform maintenance.

The Defense Innovation Unit plans to leverage artificial intelligence in a whole new capacity. By feeding years of maintenance data to AI, the military could start to fix issues before they arise. Mike Madsen, director of Strategic Engagement at DIU, says that they’re looking to award an Other Transaction Authority contract to whoever they think can help the Navy with their equipment.

 

“We’re prototyping some applications of that AI/ML [human-machine] teaming for predictive maintenance,” Madsen said. “What that’s going to allow is increased mission-capable rates for Department of Defense vehicles whether it’s aircraft, wheeled vehicles or ships. Decrease the unscheduled maintenance and it’s also going to give some cost savings.”
