The proposal objectives include development and in-field testing of the following:
1. surface and subsurface sensing modalities to detect navigational obstacles,
2. a unified stochastic surface and subsurface map of the environment suitable for real-time navigation, and
3. agile planning and control approaches that enable USV operations over a uniquely wide operating envelope and that encompass the requirements of long-range path planning and exploration, and local trajectory generation and obstacle avoidance.
A major goal of this integrated research effort is a demonstration of combined surface and subsurface sensing and real-time navigation in August 2010 at the Pearl River near Stennis Space Center, MS.
