Abstract
"The aim of this proposal is to assess the viability of building a prototype UAV Swarm. A successful swarm technology must enable hundreds of air vehicles to act in concert to execute wide-area surveillance or pursuit missions under hard real-timeconstraints. Our vision requires a lean, agile, low cost UAV platform. It also requires a technology for network centric organiation. For example, a swarem of vision sensor equipped UAV's, should be a roving compound eye in the sky. The target marketniche is to produce a new networked video surveillance and communication technology for use in the low cost SWARM concept for the Navy."
