Air, Missile, and Maritime Defense Technology
Developing technology for defending the nation from missile threats
We develop and assess integrated systems for defense against missiles and other threats. Our activities include investigating system architectures, developing advanced sensor and decision support systems, making field measurements, and assessing deployed system capabilities.

New machine learning methods capture statistical features within sonar data to distinguish between sound sources.
New navigation and vehicle autonomy algorithms consider which tasks humans and autonomous systems respectively do best, with the goal of improving search path planning and object classification in underwater environments.
With the goal of enabling navigation in environments where GPS is unavailable or unreliable, researchers are developing algorithms to fuse information across a network of small, low-power radio-frequency devices.
Undersea vision-based navigation and pose determination will enable divers and robots to collaboratively solve complex tasks in an inherently unstructured environment.
