This report describes Vanderbilts contribution to the ability to build systems that use decentralized control and fault tolerance techniques to support applications such as large clusters of Micro UAVs or Organic Air Vehicles. The approach of this effort was to analyze fault management requirements of formation flight for fleets of UAVs, and develop a layered fault management architecture which demonstrates significant improvement over current technology. The target demonstration was a radio-geolocation system, using 3-10 UAV mounted time-of-arrival measurement nodes and a single base station.
