Paper Abstract

We envision situational awareness developed through warfighters deployment of a system of diverse mobile, communicating platforms that cooperate to provide full coverage of interior and exterior spaces. The goal of the ARL-MAST Center on Microsystem Mechanics is to perform the fundamental research that will enable flying and ambulating platforms to achieve the required mobility for the proposed missions and environments. In this paper the fundamental issues and challenges associated with achieving this goal will be discussed.
