The company's website states that the platform can utilize large language models like ChatGPT to assist militaries with battlefield intel and decision-making. A demo video on the website shows how the platform can analyze enemy targets, identify hostile situations, propose battle plans, and send them to commanding officers. The platform is secure, and clients can control what data the models access and their tasks.
