Abstract:

Biologically-inspired technology holds tremendous potential for endowing micro air vehicles with the wide field-of-regard (wFOR) sensing, situational awareness, and platform agility necessary for persistent flight in spatially complex urban terrain. Mosaic ATM proposes an insightful Phase I effort comprised of two synergistic lines of investigation: 1.) Robust urban navigation through biologically augmented sensing; 2.) Agile urban perception with biologically-inspired processing. Our approach is designed to provide an expedient means for transitioning truly useful biological technology to fixed and rotary wing UAVs. We are teamed with the Computational Sensory-Motor Systems Lab at The Johns Hopkins University and WINTEC, Inc, an advanced flight test and integration group with specific expertise in MAV development. The Mosaic team possesses the complete spectrum of expertise necessary to research, develop, and transition biologically inspired technology to U.S. Army UAVs.
