        Calling all coders, gamers, race fans, and drone enthusiasts
        Launching the AlphaPilot Innovation Challenge, Lockheed Martin and The Drone Racing League (DRL) have challenged teams of coders, engineers, and technologists to take on developing artificial intelligence (AI) for high-speed racing drones.
        The AlphaPilot challenge tests teams of up to 10 participants on their ability to design an AI framework – powered by the NVIDIA Xavier GPU for autonomous systems – capable of flying a drone through three-dimensional race courses using only machine vision and guidance, navigation, and control algorithms.
        Designed by DRL, the autonomous drone will provide the sensing, agility, and speed needed for competitive racing as part of DRL’s new Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing (AIRR) Circuit, starting in fall 2019.
        Why Drones?
        Drone racing is a futuristic sport and a big draw for millennials and K-12 students with an interest in technology — many of whom will become future STEM professionals, drone pilots, and engineers.
        Lockheed Martin recognizes the important role in helping to develop a workforce with skills to compete in a 21st century high-tech economy.
        Lockheed Martin and DRL targeted U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to apply for AlphaPilot; however, the competition was open to drone enthusiasts, coders and technologists of all ages from around the world.
        Why is Lockheed Martin doing this?
        For more than 100 years, Lockheed Martin has been redefining flight — from the fastest speeds, to the edge of space, to unmatched maneuverability, and stealth.
        ABOUT LOCKHEED MARTIN
        Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 105,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services
