Abstract
Based on the problem formulation for pursuit-evasion differential game with the payoff of the optimal capture time and innovative multi-pursuers multi-evaders differential game techniques developed in Phase I, Impact Technologies, in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of technology, propose to develop the design tool prototype for stochastic pursuit-evasion differential games with multi-pursuers and multi-evaders. Specifically, this project will consist of: 1) Establishing the existence of Nash-type equilibrium for the value of the stochastic pursuit-evasion differential game; 2) Deriving the Hamilton-Jacobi-Isaacs (HJI) partial differential equations and verifying the regularity of the solution of the above equations; 3) Cataloging the characterization of optimal pursuit-evasion strategies and obtaining numerical solutions of the equations obtained above and their corresponding optimal pursuit-evasion strategies; 4) Improving decomposition approaches for pursuit-evader differential games with multi-pursuers and multi-evaders; 5) Develop game design tool prototype; and 6) Simulation and demonstration. The deliverables are Toolbox for Design of Pursuit-Evasion Differential Games with Multi-Pursuers and Multi-Evaders, which will be the first commercial product in the market.
