Deep Learning Analytics Center of Excellence

MACHINE LEARNING Made SMARTER

Our Deep Learning Analytics team has proven experience in creating specialized machine learning algorithms and deploying them to mobile platforms like smartphones, unmanned underwater vehicles, and aircraft at the edge of the battlefield.

We develop deep learning technologies that support smarter forecasting, threat detection, complicated problem solving, and aid in decision-making. These technologies give warfighters on the front lines access to the power of artificial intelligence.


What is Deep Learning Graphic

What is Deep Learning?

Deep learning is a form of machine learning (ML) that "can learn" representations from data itself rather than from programmed instructions. Deep learning can learn to represent very complex patterns on vast amounts of data in simple ways that can help humans and other systems do things faster and cheaper.

Deep learning can be used on variety of input data types including audio, video, text, images, radio waves and machine signals to create applications such as natural language processing, audio recognition, computer vision, and target recognition. At scale, these applications can comb through massive amounts of data that would be impossible for a team of humans to process.

In all domains, deep learning technologies can help our customers complete their missions smarter.

Machine Learning Deep Learning Target Recognition Screen

Our Work

Our Deep Learning Analytics team supported DARPA’s TRACE program, which developed advanced radar target recognition algorithms and demonstrated a low-power, real-time radar target recognition system. Military aircraft often have to fly low enough to visually identify the target, which is dangerous for pilots and can result in errors. Our team capitalized on the reduced runtime complexity of new recognition algorithms and increased computational efficiency of new mobile processors to reduce the run-time size, weight and power (SWAP) of radar target-recognition algorithms.

By bringing deep learning technology to the edge, we’re enabling more powerful target recognition algorithms to be put into action on military aircraft.

What Sets Us Apart

General Dynamics Deep Learning Approach

Our Approach

Our Deep Learning Analytics team uses a multidisciplinary and systems-level approach to solving mission-critical problems.

We partner with domain experts to help tailor our systems to meet machine requirements. We invest a significant amount of time not only in training state-of-the-art machine learning engines for our customers, but also deploying them on very small size, weight and power-efficient devices, like field programmable gate arrays and mobile devices, and integrating those research prototypes into existing transition candidates for DoD programs of record.
