Paper Abstract

Defence R&D Canada (DRDC) is exploiting a synthetic environment to explore the use of multiple coordinated sensors to perform maritime surveillance. A distributed architecture is proposed in which teams from other DRDC labs, industry and academia can experiment with solutions based on constructive or virtual simulations that run locally at their facilities, but participate through a distributed simulation employing the High Level Architecture. The problem is set in the context of the surveillance of traffic routes and fishing vessels and consists, in its most general form, of a dynamic m-vehicle, n-target coordination problem that requires task assignment and trajectory generation components in the solution. An example solution to a reduced form of the problem that was generated with a human-in-the-loop simulator is provided.
