Ready for an adventure with the Naval Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems?

With the dynamic state of global relations and ever-evolving threats around the world, our U.S. government customers depend on us to optimize the countless technology platforms that keep people safe. Our culture of innovation fuels superior warfighters on land, at sea, in the air, in space, and in cyberspace. We lend our engineering expertise to some of the most vital, technologically advanced military programs in history. When the Cold War demanded that America bolster its arsenal with a new intercontinental missile system, we helped plan, design, and build the country’s first underground missile silos. Fast forward 70 years, and today Parsons remains a trusted provider of engineering services, logistics support, and advanced technologies ranging from missile defense system integration to military facility modernization projects around the globe.

Parsons is bidding on a project to support the Navy Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence (NCARAI) has been involved in both basic and applied research in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, autonomy, and human-centered computing since its inception in 1981. NCARAI, part of the Information Technology Division within the Naval Research Laboratory, is engaged in research and development efforts designed to address the application of artificial intelligence technology and techniques to critical Navy and national problems.

The research program of the Center is directed toward understanding the design and operation of systems capable of improving performance based on experience; efficient and effective interaction with other systems and with humans; sensor-based control of autonomous activity; and the integration of varieties of reasoning as necessary to support complex decision-making. The emphasis at NCARAI is the linkage of theory and application in demonstration projects that use a full spectrum of artificial intelligence techniques.

The NCARAI has active research groups in Adaptive Systems, Intelligent Systems, Interactive Systems, and Perceptual Systems.
