Army to Launch Signal Classification Challenge

The U.S. Army‘s Rapid Capabilities Office has announced a prize competition to develop tools for soldiers to detect signals on the battlefield and visualize the electromagnetic spectrum.

RCO aims to draw innovators and data scientists to the Army Signal Classification Challenge slated to go live April 30 on FBO.gov and Challenge.gov sites, the Army said Tuesday.

“This is a competition to find the ‘best of the best’ in artificial intelligence and machine learning that can do blind signal classification,” said Rob Monto, the director of RCO’s emerging technologies office.

Monto added the challenge will allow participants to submit daily scores and view their rank through a status leader board.

Competitors will have access to a training dataset that contains 24 different modulations consisting of more than 4.3 million items.

The Army will award a $100,000 prize to the grand winner, $30,000 to the second placer and $20,000 to the third placer.

Winners can also potentially receive follow-on contracts.
