Title Autonomous Adaptation and Collaboration of Unmanned Vehicles for Tracking Submerged Contacts.
Publication Date Jun 2012
Media Count 107p
Personal Author A. J. Privette
Abstract Autonomous operations are vital to future naval operations. Unmanned systems, including autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs), are anticipated to play a key role for critical tasks such as mine counter- measures (MCM) and anti-submarine warfare (ASW). Addressing these issues with autonomous systems poses a host of difficult research challenges, including sensing, power, acoustic communications, navigation, and autonomous decision-making.
