Abstract
SSCI proposes to develop an efficient Decentralized Interception System (DIS) for a Collaborative Networked Autonomous Vehicles (CNAV). The DIS will include tasks such as the vehicle assigmnents for interception based on the overall probability of interception, and vehicle reallocation and repositioning for subsequent target interception. The key aspect of the proposed approach is the the definition of the corresponding performance criteria, and the vehicle repositioning based on the Reachable Set computation. The performance of the DIS will be tested on a high-fidelity simulation of a target intercept scenario. The specific tasks that will be performed during Phase I include: (i) Problem formulation and DIS architecture development; (ii) Development of DIS; and (iii) Test and performance evaluation through simulation. Phase II will focus on algorithm enhancement, performance evaluation through high-fidelity simulations, and Phase II transition plans. SSCI will work closely with CNAV prime contractors to implement and transition the results of this SBIR effort.
