The U.S. Army’s C5ISR Combat Capability Development Command announced that it tested prototypes of a new targeting system during the Project Convergence 22 force-on-force experiment held in California.
A press release from the C5ISR Center stated that during the exercise, soldiers tested the Advanced Targeting and Lethality Assisted System (ATLAS), which demonstrated a wide range of assisted target acquisition, tracking and reporting capabilities while operating in a realistic combat environment.
ATLAS is a joint project of the Armaments Center and the Center for Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber Operations, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR). The project provides state-of-the-art technologies that will enable an automated turret with soldier-in-the-loop control.

The AI-enabled targeting system uses advanced sensor technologies and machine learning algorithms to automate manual tasks during passive target acquisition, allowing crews to engage three targets in the time it would normally take them to engage one.
It’s worth noting that footage has been released for the first time showing a prototype AI targeting system being used on the Abrams main battle tank.
The Abrams tank was equipped with the sensor turret of the ATLAS i targeting system
