Air Force Research Lab Funds Airfield Terminal Autonomous Control Architecture

The Intelligent Systems Division has received funding from the Air Force Research Lab to develop a control architecture that allows for autonomous taxiing of commercial aircraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) on the airfield surface. The components of the architecture to be developed as part of this research include vehicle-Air Traffic Control communication, autonomous navigation and collision avoidance, sensing, and route planning, and scheduling.
