NATO STO’s Multi-domain Specialist Team on Mission-Oriented Research for Artificial Intelligence and Big Data for Military Decision Making (reference IST-173, co-chaired by IST and SAS panels) held its second meeting at Leonardo S.p.A. plant in Catania, Italy from 11-13 June 2019. The large and diverse group presence, including representatives from the STO Panels/Group IST, NMSG, SAS, SET, NATO Bodies such as ACT, NCIA, CMRE, Allied Maritime Command, NATO AGS Force and NATO M&S CoE, and also the University of Trento and other Research Centres from different NATO Countries, was testament to the strong interest from the scientific community to this topic. The team built on the “Centaur approach” as identified during the first meeting: leveraging AI and Data Science to allow NATO to fight and operate with machine speed and power while maintaining meaningful human control. The identified challenges and missions in the areas of NATO Essential Operational Capabilities of Effective Intelligence (EOC2) and Effective Command, Control and Communications (EOC5) that could be addressed by Artificial Intelligence and Data Science have been refined and research gaps in these areas have been identified and drafted. Moreover, during the three days meeting a demonstration session was held to showcase cutting-edge "Working AI" solutions from Leonardo, TNO, CMRE, NCIA and University of Trento for both EOC2 and EOC5.

The team aims to draft an initial mission-oriented research roadmap that, leveraging ongoing STO research , identifies key areas where new research is needed to inform Panels/Group efforts by the 2019 September NATO STO Science and Technology Board meeting and following Fall PBMs.
