Abstract : The goals are to develop Tactical Decision Aids for using small autonomous underwater vehicles in very shallow water (VSW) environments. TDAs enable operators to view data gathered by these vehicles and make informed decisions as to the conduct of mine counter measures operations. This project is examining the use of command and control vehicles to aid in reducing latency of decision making and improvements to overall MCM reliability using multiple vehicles. A large part of this work is to reduce latency of decision making using systems of AUVs and high speed, high bandwidth communications links.
