Abstract:

We developed algorithms for cooperative search and attack of targets by smart munitions such as the Low Cost Autonomous Attack System LOCAAS. We considered 4 or more munitions attacking a single target whose location was unknown and hidden among decoys. We assumed the munitions had a constant airspeed and maintained a constant altitude while performing a systematic search for the target in the presence of atmospheric winds. After one of the vehicles finds a target, the other vehicles are notified and one is tasked with obtaining a second independent sighting from a different angle of observation. After confirmation by the second vehicle, the target is attacked.
