Abstract:

SSCI proposes to develop an Autonomous Coordinated Control System (ACCS) for multiple USVs, and evaluate its feasibility through simulations. The proposed system will coordinate diverse tasks for USVs such as: (i) Area search with a platoon of USVs; (ii) Vehicle-to-target assignment, and removal of vehicles from the platoon to pursue and inspect suspicious vessels; (iii) Reconfiguration of the remaining vessels to continue the search; (iv) Return of the pursuit & inspection vehicles to the platoon; and (v) Platoon retasking to continue the search with additional vehicles. Phase I tasks include: (i) Problem statement and mission scenario definition; (ii) Simulation development; (iii) Algorithm development and integration; and (iv) Simulation testing. Phase II will focus on further algorithm development, high-fidelity simulation testing, and in-water demonstration of the proposed system. Lockheed Martin Undersea and Security Systems(USS) will provide technical guidance, and in-water testing and commercialization support throughout the project.
