A diver and autonomous underwater vehicle swim underwater to identify an object (mine).
undersea technology
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.
Two photos are shown of the same landscape. The left hand photo shows a clear day, with a mountain in the distance. The right hand side shows a foggy view, with the mountain obscured.
air traffic control
An algorithm uses camera imagery to estimate visibility for pilots flying in remote areas that lack weather sensors.
Teaming autonomous ground and aerial vehicles improves autonomous off-road military missions.
autonomous systems
Teaming autonomous ground and aerial vehicles improves autonomous off-road military missions.
An illustration of data being sent across a laser from a small satellite to a ground station on Earth.
laser communications
The laser communications payload has delivered terabytes of data from a satellite to Earth at record-breaking rates that will transform future science missions.
A rendition of a communications payload on its spacecraft host, with laser links over the Earth connecting Hawaii and California.
laser communications
Optical communications technologies decades in the making at Lincoln Laboratory were transferred to NASA for its first two-way laser relay communications system.
A schematic of a burning building with firefighters, firetrucks, and uncrewed aerial vehicles on the scene. Arrows link between them, each within concentric circles, to signify a radio-frequency network.
navigation systems
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.
A person swimming underwater maps a sunken vessel.
undersea technology
Undersea vision-based navigation and pose determination will enable divers and robots to collaboratively solve complex tasks in an inherently unstructured environment.
