Multiple Objective Collision-free 3D Route Planning using RAMPANT (Real-time Aggressive Maneuver Planner to Assist Integrated Teams)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
We propose to develop Real-time Aggressive Maneuver Planner to Assist Integrated Teams (RAMPANT) to push the operational envelope while considering collision avoidance and dynamic limitations of airborne vehicle teams. The RAMPANT planner will be employ highly efficient and expeditious random-search planning techniques to arrive at feasible paths in real-time designed to safely scramble away from enemy pursuit or fire. Our efficient obstacle and objective representation methods expedite the course planning process, and enables the planning algorithms to be plan and re-plan iteratively in real-time when flight conditions put aerial teams under duress. Scientific Systems Company, Inc, has extensive experience in real-time autonomous vehicle path planning and collision avoidance, and has likewise has recently used our collaborative control architecture to optimize team mission success for such missions as search and suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD).
