SoarTech Develops Autonomous AI to Mimic Human Reasoning

Autonomous artificial intelligence rapidly gathers information and conducts tasks, freeing humans to focus on the important decisions and missions. SoarTech autonomous AI applies human reasoning-based research that is functional in multiple capability areas and adaptable to a variety of unmanned platforms.

SoarTech develops technologies for individual intelligent autonomous robots and collaborative, coordinated networks of unmanned systems. With coordinated networks of autonomous AI, military personnel can obtain large amounts of data over wide areas and project force without risking a single human life.

SoarTech’s autonomous AI is designed with algorithms that mimic human reasoning in obtaining, assessing, and distributing information. In interfacing with humans, autonomous AI becomes a valuable and life-saving technology to enhance military and civilian operations.

The same technologies that have enabled SoarTech to bring human level intelligence and natural, multi-modal interfaces to simulation systems, are now being used to build intelligent, autonomous, and collaborative robotic systems. Robotic intelligence frees humans from being tethered to a robot end and makes the robot a true team me instead of a piece of equipment.


Just as teams are critical, swarms of intercommunicating and collaborating autonomous entities can complete tasks with greater speed and coverage to ensure mission goals are optimally met. SoarTech has developed decades of experience at designing swarming behaviors, tactics, capabilities, and control mechanisms.

The ability of each swarm member to communicate and organize based on the collective state and mission of the swarm and all other members is a critical aspect of an operational swarm. SoarTech has specialized in the development of power swarming behaviors, including: building mapping, identifying and tracking targets in public, and securing areas.

Human Autonomy & Trust

Trust is a vital component in any team and is more vital and challenge in a human-machine team. SoarTech has developed a multiplicity of metrics enabling an inference as to the level of trust a human user has towards assistive autonomy.  The measurement of trust can assist the iterative design of more trustable and trustworthy autonomy.

A further application of continual trust measurements is to enable a system to provide a personalized level of autonomous operations adjusted to the perceived trust level of the user.

Modeling & Simulation

The design and development of autonomy prototypes can become rather pricey.  To address the need to continually iterate a physical prototype, SoarTech employs suites of modeling and simulation tools to vet and test both autonomy designs through synthetic prototypes and autonomous behaviors to ensure optimal results.  This process is founded on realistic physics interactions between the environment and the autonomy, the interactions between autonomy assemblages, and sensors with the surroundings.  Coupling this Model-based Simulation Environment with robust behavior authoring enables SoarTech to evaluate and vet a system prior to its construction, minimizing cost and labor.

HR Interface

Dialogue based, mixed initiative interaction control systems and speech interfaces such as our universal controller, make the job of tasking a robot or autonomous vehicle as natural as possible through the integration of speech, sketch, voice, and haptics to create an efficient human-robot interface and diverse operational situations. Our interfaces are designed to be platform independent and meet industry standards.

Human-Robot Interfaces

Strong human-machine teams are based on trust and ease. SoarTech ensures the ease of use with a suite of human-machine interaction modalities, most notably speech, gesture, and tablet-based sketch.
