Professor Tony Healey (second from left) and Cmdr. Doug Horner (left) co-principal investigators for the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Center for AUV Research showcase some of the autonomous vehicles that will be deployed in an upcoming field experiment. The 9-day series of experiments scheduled in June is an NPS and U.S. Special Operations Forces project that will field test operations of autonomous vehicles in a collaborative networking environment. The unmanned vehicles include three types of light weight aircraft, and two different unmanned ground vehicles with a mixture of onboard sensors that when combined create a full spectrum battlefield picture. Also in the experiment is a lighter than air platform. “The eventual goal is to combine different classes of unmanned vehicles working in a collaborative fashion,” said Horner.
