Lockheed Martin selects Red Hat to advance AI innovation

Lockheed Martin has selected Red Hat to advance artificial intelligence (AI) innovation at the edge on Lockheed Martin military platforms.
Red HatLockheed Martin will be adopting the Red Hat Device Edge to enable Lockheed Martin to support U.S. national security missions by applying and standardizing AI technologies in geographically constrained environments.

Red Hat Device Edge delivers an enterprise-ready and supported distribution of MicroShift, a lightweight Kubernetes orchestration solution built from the edge capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift, along with an edge-optimized operating system built from Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Lockheed Martin used Red Hat Device Edge on a Stalker UAS to demonstrate how AI-enhanced sensing can advance Joint All-Domain Operations. The Stalker used onboard sensors and AI to adapt in real-time to a threat environment.
