Chesapeake UAS Route Network

Development and integration of a network designed to enable unmanned aircraft to be flown safely within airspace over the Chesapeake Bay region that also includes conventional, piloted aircraft. In addition, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) utilizing the network could fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) and over populated areas. Currently, most UAS operations are constrained by BVLOS requirements and restrictions on flying over people.



ArtIAMAS is a cooperative agreement between the Army Research Laboratory, the University of Maryland College Park, and the University of Maryland Baltimore County that seeks to accelerate the field deployment of long-duration multi-agent systems that can perform multi-domain operations and dominate contested, complex environments. Research includes work in: multi-agent systems engineering; building secure, resilient and connected systems; and human-machine teaming and understanding.


Autonomous Planning and Navigation

University of Maryland Professor Dinesh Manocha and his team are pursuing projects related to ground navigation, aerial video recognition (as part of ArtIAMAS) and the development of a heterogeneous testbed of ground-air vehicles.
