The initial agreement will last up to five years and enable CMU students and employees to enjoy access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment—and new innovative, technological methods.
Benefits to ONR and NRL include enhanced perspectives through exposure to the ideas of the academic community; the opportunity to identify mutually beneficial areas of endeavor; and partnering in the education and professional development of future scientists and engineers.
ONR and CMU also recently co-sponsored an “AI and Autonomy for HA/DR” workshop. This brought together a community of academic, industry and government experts to speed up the development of new AI and autonomous capabilities in support of HA/DR missions.
“This agreement builds a foundation for expanded collaborations between NRL and CMU, especially in the rapidly developing discipline of artificial intelligence,” said Capt. Scott Moran, NRL commanding officer. “Access to NRL personnel and facilities will provide unique opportunities for CMU students and faculty to develop, implement and test technologies focused on Navy needs. Furthermore, NRL researchers will benefit from opportunities to leverage CMU's world-renowned expertise in this field.”
