Unmanned Systems

 

Our nation is focused on reducing the exposure of our military personnel to dangerous conflict environments and exploring and controlling human-inaccessible environments, while reducing the manning and cost footprints of operations. As a result, advances in unmanned systems capabilities have become a cornerstone of technology development initiatives throughout the DoD. At Charles River, we bring our extensive experience and capabilities to the challenge of deploying truly autonomous robotic platforms to meet these needs. We apply our technology base to enable on-board autonomy through embedded sensor processing technologies that enable unmanned systems to “see,” understand, and respond to the operating environment independently. We develop mission planning and dynamic replanning capabilities to maximize potential to achieve mission goals in the uncertain and rapidly changing environments of ground, air, and marine operations. We also apply our human-centered command and control (C2) capabilities to ensure effective human/machine collaboration and management through all phases of operations.
