Optimal Unmanned Vehicle Planning (OUP)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
¿ Daniel H. Wagner Associates, Inc., with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as a subcontractor, will develop a demonstration Multi-Vehicle Mission Planner (MVMP) that can optimally allocate Unmanned Vehicle (UV) assets in a typical Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Flt 0 mission scenario. The demonstration MVMP will optimally allocate Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) such as the Remote Environmental Monitoring Unit System (REMUS) or the Battlespace Preparation Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (BPAUV), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) such as the Remote Minehunting System (RMS) and Spartan Scout, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) such as Fire Scout. We will also develop a report containing specifications and a high-level design for the MVMP. The MVMP will significantly improve the Navy's ability to utilize UVs for missions such as mine warfare (MIW), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), and Surface Warfare (SUW) within the maritime littoral region, due to its ability to optimize assets within real-world operational constraints. In addition, MVMP will be implemented as a Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS)-compliant component, pass information to individual UV control systems, and interface with existing high-level planning systems.
