Autonomous Networked Systems Cognitive Networks

Opportunity Description

Research is needed to meet significant challenges in networked autonomous systems, including collaborative behaviors, intelligence, and perception. Achieving increasing levels of autonomy in Army systems is a critical step forward for tactical application of mobile agents for sensing, surveillance, situational awareness, localization, and communications. Algorithms and architectures must be developed, simulated, and experimentally tested in realistic scenarios. In the near term, steps beyond teleoperation are desired to relieve the human operator while enhancing mission effectiveness. In the longer term, ensembles of agents will be deployed with minimal human interaction, to carry out tactical tasks such as surveillance, tracking, mapping, and deploying sensor networks. Significant challenges include operating in complex indoor/outdoor environments, designing for heterogeneous multiple agents and their optimal interaction, interplay of air and ground agents, tradeoffs in complexity and communications, limited energy, and maintaining communications networks while carrying out collaborative tasks.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
