From Technical to Ethical...

From Concept Generation to Experimentation...

The Naval Postgraduate School's Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education and Research (CRUSER):

  • Reaches across the Navy, Marine Corps, Department of Defense, academia, and industry

  • Collaborative environment for the advancement of unmanned systems education and research endeavors

  • Community of interest for unmanned systems in military and naval operations

  • Encompasses the successful research, education, and experimentation efforts in unmanned systems

  • An inclusive community for all disciplines

  • Conducts concept generation workshops for naval missions

  • Hosts technical symposia to address naval missions, and field experimentation to test selected technologies

At the direction of the Secretary of the Navy, the Naval Postgraduate School leverages its long-standing experience and expertise in the research and education of robotics and unmanned systems to support the Navy's mission. The Consortium for Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education and Research (CRUSER) serves as a vehicle to align currently disparate research efforts and integrate academic courses across discipline boundaries.  Established in 2011 in conjunction with the SECNAV's Unmanned System Goals, CRUSER continues today under the secretariat lead for unmanned systems, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Unmanned Systems (DASN(UXS)).
