Airbus Defence and Space Partners with Helsing on AI-Driven Wingman System

Airbus Defence and Space and Helsing, one of Europe’s leading defence AI and software company, signed a framework cooperation agreement at the ILA aerospace trade show in Berlin. According to the agreement, the companies will work together on AI technologies, which will be used in a future Wingman system. This unmanned fighter-type aircraft will operate with current combat jets and receive its tasks from a pilot in a command aircraft such as the Eurofighter.
As a response to increasing operational requirements by the German Air Force, the Wingman is intended to augment the capabilities of manned combat aircraft with uncrewed platforms that can carry weapons and other effectors. 
Mike Schoellhorn, CEO at Airbus Defence and Space, said: “Supported by AI, the wingman takes over the dangerous tasks, including target reconnaissance and destruction or electronic jamming and deception of enemy air defence systems.”
Under the AI agreement, Airbus will provide its expertise in the interaction of unmanned and manned military aircraft, so-called Manned-Unmanned Teaming, and as prime contractor of major European defence programmes such as the Eurofighter or the A400M military transporter. Helsing will contribute its AI stack of relevant software-defined mission capabilities, including the fusion of various sensors and algorithms for electronic warfare.
