Abstract:

This paper describes investigation of algorithms that generate vehicle and task assignments for autonomous UAVs in cooperative missions. In previous work many algorithms have been examined to solve the problem of assignment of autonomous UAVs to tasks based on their ability to perform those tasks. Because of the complexity of this problem, these algorithms have been based on heuristic solutions to the problem.
