AI fighter pilot wins in combat simulationOriginal report in Journal of Defence Management Quote ALPHA was assessed by Colonel (retired) Gene ?Geno?Lee. As a former United States Air Force Air Battle Manager, Genois a United States Air Force Fighter Weapon School graduate andAdversary Tactics (Aggressor) Instructor, and has controlled or flownin thousands of air-to-air intercepts as a Ground Control Interceptofficer, as a Mission Commander on AWACS, and in the cockpit ofmultiple fighter aircraft. ...When Geno took manual control of the blue aircraft againstthe reds controlled by the baseline controller AFRL had previouslybeen utilizing, he could easily defeat it. However, even after repeatedattempts against the more mature version of ALPHA, not only couldhe not score a kill against it, he was shot out of the air by the reds everytime after protracted engagements. He described ALPHA as ?the mostaggressive, responsive, dynamic and credible AI (he?s) seen-to-date.?
