The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) is seeking open architectures, standards, interface documentation, and communication protocols that demonstrate effective multivehicle, collaborative autonomy for various modalities of unmanned systems (UxS). Of particular interest are solutions from industry and academia that can be incorporated into a future government design to meet the Warfighter’s needs. The solution should enable interoperability across heterogeneous UxS platforms, sensors, and autonomy vendors and be TRL 6-9. If you have any information to support this request, please contact Taylor Knight (taylor.h.knight.ctr@mail.mil), the lead analyst for this effort, or join the discussion on the DoDTechipedia forum by clicking the “Join the Discussion” button below.
