Abstract:

A significant amount of research is being conducted on the cooperative behavior of multiple uninhabited combat aerial vehicles UCAVs in the area of search, observation, target recognition, and attack. The cooperative behavior must be carried out in a communications- limited, noisy, adversarial, and uncertain environment. It is envisioned that effective solutions of these problems will involve a combination of top-level operations researchartificial intelligence type decision making combined with distributed control, distributed estimation, and real-time trajectory optimization. The solutions of several problems which have importance in the cooperative behavior of multiple vehicles are presented.
