Award List:

Reinforcement Learning and Genetic Learning Classifier Systems for Sensor Management and Adaptive Flight Control System

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2002 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,828.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
James D. Paduano, President
Research Institution:
MIT
RI Contact:
Jeffrey Friedland
Abstract:
The work proposed here will build on current research results to develop and implement algorithms for planning trajectories of multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) working cooperatively. Their common mission is to reach a target by flying in an unknownenvironment, which they learn about through… More

Control-Configured Concepts for Low Cost Air Cargo Delivery

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$94,480.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / SOCOM
Principal Investigator:
David Dugail, Research Engineer
Abstract:
"The objective of this proposal is to develop a low-cost air cargo delivery systemthat combines a very simple airframe/pallet design with a low-cost "embeddedelectronics" guidance system. Although various airframe possibilities will beconsidered, all will be UAV-type systems, guided based on… More

Real Time, Neurodynamic Programming Optimization For the Planning of Multi-Missile/Multi-Target Loiter Patterns

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,927.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
James D. Paduano, president
Abstract:
In support of the Navy's Tactical Tomahawk efforts, a tool is to be designed which will generate optimal missile loiter plans, expediently and autonomously, for examination and utilization by field commanders and operators. The plans will incorporate anyknown constraints such as no-fly zones,… More

UAV Survivability Enhancement via Agile Maneuvering in Dynamic Environments

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,936.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
James D. Paduano, President
Abstract:
The overall goal of the program is to demonstrate optic flow for aggressive, obstacle-avoiding flight, and to develop a vehicle that incorporates the necessary flight capabilities, guidance and control, and hardware for swallow-like flight and landing. The NTC/MIT autonomous helicopter (AHMMH-1)… More

Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
James D. Paduano, President
Research Institution:
MASS. INST. OF TECH.
RI Contact:
Jon P. How
Abstract:
Nascent Technology, MIT, and BAE Systems propose to create an embedded system, suitable for installation in low- and medium-cost UAVs, that performs cooperative decision and control in practical communication environments. This effort will extend existing decentralized task assignment tools, test… More

Cooperative Decision and Control with Intermittent Asynchronous Communication

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / STTR / Phase II

Research Institution:
MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLO
RI Contact:
Jon How
Abstract:
This proposal describes the development of an on-board planning module for coordinated search and tracking (CSAT) using low-cost (~50 lb class) UAVs. The NTC/MIT Phase I CSAT system, based on Robust Distributed Task Assignment (RDTA), has been tested in a unique communication emulation environment,… More
