  • Effectiveness of Inter-Vehicle Communications and On-Board Processing for Close Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle Flight Formations
    Developing an effective cooperative communication system for unmanned aerial vehicles can increase their autonomy, reduce manpower requirements, and improve mission capabilities.
  • Systems Engineering Approach to Develop Guidance, Navigation and Control Algorithms for Unmanned Ground Vehicle
    This research explores the development of a UGV capable of operating autonomously in a densely cluttered environment such as the tropical jungles or plantation estates commonly found in Asia.
  • Validation of Architecture Models for Coordination of Unmanned Air and Ground Vehicles via Experimentation
    Using the relationship of system architecture products and model-based systems engineering analysis to quantify system performance highlights the feasibility of a UAV-UGV team collaboratively conduct-ing the structured, rudimentary tasks necessary to find a person in distress.
  • Assessing the Effectiveness of a Combat UGV Swarm in Urban Operations
    Fighting in urban areas is extremely complex and challenging due to multi-story structures, new engagement conditions, and the consideration of civilian-military relations, but recent technological advancements could enable the military to employ robotic platforms in swarms to help overcome operational challenges in an urban environment.
