JPL Principal Investigator- Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (September 2012-current):
This task will apply JPL robotic control and planning technology to support a long duration robotic mission for an unmanned surface vehicle with the capability to track submarines.

JPL Principal Investigator- Autonomous Aerial Cargo/Utility System (September 2012-current):
This task will apply image processing and hazard classification algorithms to understand landing site uncertainty for a vertical takeoff and landing system.

Principal Investigator- BlueDevil (April 2012-current):
This task is a continuation of JPL image processing for wide area surveillance activities. In particular, this task will provide flight code for onboard gyro calibration for an image array and a step stare system. We will integrate an EKF to improve geo-registration capabilities.

Principal Investigator- Aerial Processing for AV(September 2011-2012)

Task Manager and Co-Investigator- SRTD: Exploitation of Aerial Imagery (September 2010-current):
This task is a 3 year effort to improve JPL capabilities in exploitation of aerial imagery.
