Soldiers and first responders do not have rapidly deployable or scalable autonomous sensor support to use during recon, ambush, or search-and-rescue operations. The reasons for lack of scalable, autonomous sensor support to deployed soldiers are fourfold:
We aim to make inroads into each of these problem areas by creating a scalable middleware framework that supports autonomous AI for a search-and-rescue mission. The goal of this project is to demonstrate an autonomous swarm of five thermal-enabled drones that search for survivors in a field and report thermal targets back to a smartphone.
