Paper Abstract

In February 2008 the US Army Research Laboratory established the Micro Autonomous Systems and Technology Collaborative Technology Alliance, in which research is performed by an alliance of government, academic and industrial researchers. The research, grounded in microsystem mechanics, microelectronics, algorithms for autonomy, and integration, is focused on addressing four cross-cutting thrusts: mobility and navigation of palm-sized platforms, sensing and perception on palm-sized platforms, sensing, perception, and navigation of a collection of platforms, and the modeling, simulation, experimentation, and validation of such platforms individually and as a collective ensemble. This article reviews the operational and technical objectives of the program, and overviews some of the research conducted to achieve them.
