Advanced Behaviors and Sensing for Unmanned Surface Vehicles

Description:
This effort is tasked with the design and demonstration of an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) in long duration, complex mission scenarios. JPL-developed high-level and low-level autonomy capabilities for USVs are based on Continuous Activity Scheduling Planning Execution and Re-planning (CASPER) and Control Architecture for Robotic Agent Command and Sensing (CARACaS). JPL will integrate and test the behaviors and advanced sensing systems needed for extended operations during long duration, complex mission scenarios. These complex mission scenarios will be used to demonstrate autonomous operations in the field. This development and testing process will set the groundwork for demonstration of cooperative multiple manned/unmanned vehicles performing advanced operations.
