The US, UK, and Australia’s defence chiefs mentioned that the crew on Pacific missions onboard the US Navy’s maritime surveillance and attack aircraft will use AI to process the Sonar data provided by the underwater devices.

The three Nations believe this method could help them track the Chinese submarines with greater accuracy and speed since they are looking for ways to counter China as it rapidly tries to modernise its military and grow its influence. These tests are a part of the three countries’ extensive technology-sharing agreement called Aukus Pillar II.

Per the joint statement from US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Australian Defense Minister Richard Marles and UK Secretary of State for Defense Grant Shapps, these joint efforts will enable data exploitation, which will be efficient and quick and improve anti-submarine warfare capacities of the three nations.

The US, UK, and Australia will use advanced AI algorithms on several systems, such as the P – 8A Poseidon Aircraft, to process data from each country’s underwater detection devices.

All three countries use aircraft built by Boeing Co. The U.S. planes regularly patrol the Pacific and the South China Sea, where they are sometimes buzzed by fighter planes from China.

This step is a part of a broader security partnership among the three allies called Akus, a regional alliance built by the U.S. to check the growing Chinese influence.

The partnership’s Pillar I was focused on building Australia’s nuclear-powered submarine capabilities, which will lead to the development of a new sub for fielding by 2040. Pillar II is about cooperating in 8 areas like hypersonic weapons, quantum technologies, and advanced cybersecurity.

The defence chiefs also mentioned their plan to integrate their abilities for launching and recovering drone vehicles from torpedo tubes on their subs for underwater attacks and gathering intelligence data.

This will increase their undersea forces’ range and capabilities and support Australia’s new sub, SSN-AUKUS.
