Radio-Based Navigation for Environments Without GPS
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 for Human-Robot Teaming
Undersea vision-based navigation and pose determination will enable divers and robots to collaboratively solve complex tasks in an inherently unstructured environment.
Private Automated Contact Tracing
An automated, Bluetooth-based system helps perform contact tracing in a private, anonymous way, offering a method to reduce disease spread during a pandemic.
Materials by Design
A new approach to materials discovery aims to expedite the process of deploying new materials for specific mission needs.
Ground-Based Sense-And-Avoid System
A radar and guidance system enables uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) to avoid collisions with other aircraft, allowing the Department of Defense to operate UAS in the National Airspace System.
Global Synthetic Weather Radar
By compiling lightning data, satellite imagery, and numerical weather models, the GSWR provides radar-like analyses and forecasts over regions not observed by actual weather radars.
Mission-Ready Reinforcement Learning
We are using reinforcement learning to train artificial intelligence to team with humans and carry out complex military operations.
Researchers at the STRIVE Center are developing a fluid, intuitive exoskeleton system to improve the technology’s use in operational environments.
Assessment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Researchers at the STRIVE Center are improving methods for identifying the mechanisms underlying balance impairments in patients with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
