Contract: W81XWH-11-C-0481
Award Amount: $99,926.00


The combined team of Neya Systems, LLC (NSL), and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), propose to develop the Casualty Evacuation Mission Management System (CEMMS), an effort that will provide significant opportunities to: 1. Develop a Domain Specific Language (DSL) that enables translation from commander"s intent to UGV commands, leveraging a large base of work developed under an existing Army SBIR program. 2. Develop on-line interaction methods, such as speech, gestures, and direct data connections, to indicate specific mission parameters such as location of casualties. 3. Develop a Mission Execution Enginethat interprets the DSL in real time, and includes high-degree-of-freedom on-line planning capabilities. 4. Move beyond simple, isolated examples of autonomous robot command and control to address the broad challenge of mission planning, mission management, and task execution. 5. Demonstrate how the low-level JAUS standardization work in SAE AS-4 can enable more effective use of robotic systems exercising greater autonomy, increasing interoperability, modularity, and rapid development.
