Abstract:

This project will address critical Army technology shortcomings related to the use of semi autonomous and autonomous weapons platforms under development for the Future Force. Phase I will address "colloborative processes" for autonomous acquisition, track and engagement of targets by integration of an existing Multi Target Tracker with a CDAS Network Enabled Decision Aid Component hosting reuseable software components developed under previous research programs. The resulting application will allow tasking a collection of autonomous unmanned ground systems with an autonomous target "search, acquire, and track" mission and will automate engagement of multiple targets using a distributed decision aid module resident on the robots themselves. It will also provide automated target hand-off to the appropriate shooter for employment of multiple Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) in an MxN shooter-target environment. The demonstration mission is a complete thread from receipt of a Tactical Order from FBCB2, through the Search and Surveillance/Tracking process, determination of the optimal Engagement Course of Action, and execution of the autonomous MxN Shooter-Target Engagement process.
