Award List:

Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,024.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
David Conner, Research Scientist
Abstract:
Many modern approaches to autonomy use a layered planning technique where a conventional path planner plans a nominal desired path, and a reactive planner plans trajectories over a local region. In relatively structured environments with good localization, this layered approach has been proven to… More

Path Planning and Hazard Detection for Assault Zone Terminal Evaluation

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$685,066.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
David C. Conner, Research Scientist – (540) 443-9262
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: This research focuses on providing a capability to perform rapid, semi-autonomous unmanned assessment of potential combat airstrips. Current Tactics Techniques and Procedures require the operator to walk the runway and manually assess viability. Soil hardness measurements are sampled… More
