The Naval Command Control and Ocean Surveillance Center NCCOSC has developed an architecture to provide coordinated control of multiple autonomous vehicles from a single host console. The Multiple Robot Host Architecture MRHA is a distributed multiprocessing system that can be expanded to accommodate as many as 32 robots. The initial application will employ eight Cybermotion K2A Navmaster robots configured as remote Security platforms in support of the Mobile Detection Assessment and Response System MDARS Program. This paper discusses developmental testing of the MRHA in an operational warehouse environment with two actual and four simulated robotic platforms.
