Abstract: The development of the US Army Next Generation Combat Vehicle will integrate many innovations in artificial intelligence, autonomy, manned–unmanned teaming, predictive analytics, automatic target recognition, and other functions that require exponential increases in onboard computing capabilities. While the Army will be able to leverage many of the innovations taking place in the commercial sector for driver assist and full autonomous operation, the additional complexities of the battlefield require capabilities not addressed commercially. In this technical note we enumerate challenges faced by the Army and how onboard High-Performance Computing is critical to addressing the challenges.
