In this Phase II SBIR project, Daniel H. Wagner Associates (DHWA), with NASA?s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and Spatial Integrated Systems (SIS) as our subcontractors, will develop a high definition Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) and Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) modeling and simulation (M&S) system, initially focused on the DARPA Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) ASV. This Detailed ASV/USV Modeling and Simulation system (DAMS) will accurately evaluate ASV (e.g., ACTUV) mission effectiveness and International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) compliance using any potentially available sensors.
