BACKGROUND

All NATO nations recognize the growing problem of limitations of platform capacity in warfighting. Embedded computing which enables autonomous behaviors for unmanned systems is an important response to create safer and scalable defense capacities. In regions where communications to unmanned systems are severely limited (undersea domain for example) autonomy is particularly important for sensor signal processing, vehicle situational awareness, and long term mission planning. Machine learning techniques are making important advances which are expected to continue and be available worldwide. Expectation of continuing advances in computing make autonomy a pressing topic to stay ahead of potential opponents. 

OBJECTIVES

This Technical Activity will create a framework to facilitate research collaboration, data/software sharing, and joint at-sea experimentation in the subject of autonomy, machine intelligence, and unmanned systems.

TOPICS

A: Single and multi-vehicle autonomy; standards for autonomy architectures B: Automated perception including machine learning, signal processing, automatic target recognition, and change detection with emphasis on surface and undersea targets and clutter
