AI-Driven Autonomous Dogfighting

The US Air Force Pilot School and DARPA have announced a big breakthrough enabling autonomous, artificial intelligence-driven dogfighting.
Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall says, “The potential for autonomous air-to-air combat has been imaginable for decades, but the reality has remained a distant dream until now.”

Kendall will soon take flight in the X-62A VISTA aircraft to personally see AI in a simulated combat environment.

The test flight will take place at the Edwards Air Force Base.
The project has demonstrated the ability for dogfighting at twelve hundred miles per hour and as close as 2,000 feet.
