Khalifa University and Lockheed Martin to Collaborate

Khalifa University and Lockheed Martin announced the signing of an agreement to create a framework to utilise Artificial Intelligence (AI) and computer vision to inspect and verify measurements, in order to improve the speed and accuracy of logo inspections during an aircraft production cycle.
The agreement was executed by Dr. Arif Sultan Al Hammadi, Executive Vice-President, Khalifa University, and Dr. Steve Walker, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Lockheed Martin, at Dubai Airshow 2021.
Lockheed Martin and Khalifa University will collaborate on a Computer Vision & Pattern Recognition (CVPR) project using AI reinforcement learning and training sets. CVPR techniques have become more ubiquitous as computer hardware and software techniques have improved over the past 20 years. CVPR has been applied to biometrics, target identification, aimpoint refinement, and automated control. It is of interest to Lockheed Martin for use across all domains.
“Khalifa University’s collaboration agreement with Lockheed Martin signifies our status not only as a top-ranked research-intensive university but also as a centre for academic and innovation excellence in advanced technologies such as machine learning and augmented reality systems through our research centers,” said Dr. Al Hammadi. “We believe this partnership will lead to an outcome that will benefit industry stakeholders while ushering in quality systems to assist professionals in the global aviation sector.”
