Abstract
The US ARMY is seeking Unmanned Systems (UMS) with increased levels of automation, coordination, improved human machine interface and communication networks that enable collaborative engagements across multiple UMS platforms capable of automated and collaborative search and target engagement while providing alerts and alarms based on a distributed intelligent sensor network and with a high fidelity visualization toolset for enhanced situational awareness, providing a common operational picture. We are pleased to propose the Multi-agent Automatic Target, Threat Alert and Cueing System (MATTACS). The MATTACS leverages the Coremicro 4D GIS system with mission planning toolsets and a 3D virtual global GIS based visualization engine and AGNC robotic platform targeting functionalities. MATTACS also deploys a novel distributed multi-agent multi-target tracking fusion algorithm at each agent node. The objective of this project is to enhance the current Robotic platforms functionalities and specifically to increase its autonomy for collaborative target detection, tracking and engagement. At the end of Phase I, a prototype system demonstration based on multiple mission threads will be conducted.
