Coordinating multiple EW decoys for protection of naval task groups

Project description

In this project, a number of decoys are deployed in defence of a ship or fleet of ships against advanced anti-ship missiles. The autonomous networked platforms (eg: UAVs or USVs) must optimise their positions/flight trajectories and deliver the right effects to ensure successful defence of the ship(s). It is assumed that the UAVs/USVs have multiple payload functionalities – electronic attack and support, surveillance, and communication relays. The cooperative guidance of the autonomous vehicles will be managed centrally on the command ship. However, it is expected that the autonomous vehicles will be able to perform distributed decision making for improved system robustness and computational burden sharing.
