Paper Abstract

We review efforts by NAVAIR and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory to automate the operation of the largest fleet of autonomous maritime vehicles. The vehicles are intended for large-scale demonstrations of US Navy systems and tactics to counter asymmetric naval threats. This review covers a distributed architecture for human-in-the-loop control of several autonomous high speed boats. Hazard avoidance and formation control was verified using real-world vehicles.
