Autonomous robots offer the potential to conduct Counter-Weapons of Mass Destruction (C-WMD) missions in an efficient and robust manner. However, to leverage this potential, a mission designer needs to be able to determine how well a robot system will operate in the noisy and uncertain environments that a C-WMD mission may require. We are developing a(More)

This paper explores how an autonomous agent can model dynamic environments and use that knowledge to improve its behavior. This capability is of particular importance for persistent agents, or long-term autonomy. Inspiration is drawn from circadian rhythms in nature, which drive periodic behavior in many organisms. In our approach, the chemical oscillators(More)
