ANGOLA - On Saturday, April 27, area residents will have the opportunity to see how the best and brightest students from six Indiana colleges and universities have met the challenge of developing unmanned vessels that could assist in future U.S. Navy missions.

The first Artificial Intelligence Maritime Maneuver Indiana Collegiate Challenge (AIMM ICC) will feature teams of students from Trine University, Purdue Fort Wayne, Purdue University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, the university of Notre Dame and Indiana University.

Each team has built a low-cost, low-profile vessel (LPVs) guided by artificial intelligence (AI).

The challenge will begin at 10 a.m. on Lake James near the Potawatomi Inn at Pokagon State Park and is expected to conclude about 5 p.m. Each LPV will seek to complete the most objectives in the least amount of time.

The event is open to the public.

AIMM ICC is the result of a collaboration between Trine University and Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division, funded by the Department of the Navy, Office of Naval Research under ONR award number: N00014-23-1-2661 supported by efforts led by U.S. Rep. Jim Banks (R-3rd).

The goal of the challenge is to provide a low-cost, easy-to-build, LPV that can be made fully autonomous for a variety of mission sets, including intercepting illegal drugs.
