Researchers at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) have received a three-year, $998,803 U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to develop a networked airborne computing platform for multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
NSF says the platform will be made available to the research community to build upon current and future technology, as well as enabling the use of networked UAVs for civilian applications.
"We will develop and share the open-network aerial computing platform that researchers in fields such as electrical engineering, computer science and engineering, and aerospace engineering can use to explore research in the use of networked UAVs," says UTA professor Yan Wan. "We will support that community by facilitating testing and leveraging our own research to stimulate a variety of new research directions."
A networked aerial computing system would permit operators to download fused information from UAV networks and respond in real time.
