Opportunity Description

Unmanned Air and Ground Vehicles Advisor: Wilkerson, SA [Click Here To Join]; 410.278.3966) Key words: Unmanned Air Vehicles, Unmanned Ground Vehicles, Autonomous Mobility, Off-the-Shelf Technology, Robots, Aircraft Research opportunities exist to research robotic and unmanned air vehicle systems in the Weapons Technology Analysis Branch. We are particularly interested in the development of mobile autonomous sensors systems for Signal Intelligence (SIGINT), Suppression of Enemy Defenses (SEAD), and other UAV missions. Furthermore, UAV and UGV cooperation is very important. In these studies, actual hardware and software are being developed for test and evaluation of UAV/UGV networked cooperative behaviors. Swarming techniques and networked cooperation between various ground and air systems is also possible. Research focuses on hardware and software demonstrations. Opportunities are available to program and experiment with actual robotic UAV systems. Systems reaching maturity will have the technology transitioned to the private sector and give researchers the pleasure of seeing their projects.
