Paper Abstract

The vision for the Micro Autonomous Systems Technologies MAST programis to develop autonomous, multifunctional, collaborative ensembles of agile, mobile microsystems to enhance tactical situational awareness in urban and complex terrain for small unit operations. Central to this vision is the ability to have multiple, heterogeneous autonomous assets to function as a single cohesive unit, that is adaptable, responsive to human commands and resilient to adversarial conditions. This paper represents an effort to develop a simulation environment for studying control, sensing, communication, perception, and planning methodologies and algorithms.
