Abstract:

The authors investigate the effects of target arrival rate on the communication and mission performance of cooperatively controlled uninhabited aerial vehicles UAVs with task allocation performed by iterative network flow. Specifically, they quantify the effect of arrival rate on observed statistics of communication and mission performance. The statistics of interest are peak communication data rate and execution defects. The effects are seen in a series of vehicle-target scenarios simulated in the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratorys MultiUAV environment.
