  journal={Journal of Intelligent \& Robotic Systems},
In this paper we describe an experience of multi UAS civil mission management derived from our participation to the Industrial Research Project SMAT-F1, which focused on UAV missions for monitoring the territory for civil purposes. After describing the operational framework and the system architecture, we present in some detail the computer-supported design of a Mission Plan. The main focus of the article is on the flight experience made; in particular, we discuss the capabilities of the system… 

A Ground Control Station for the UAV Flight Simulator

The ground control station software is in cooperation with flight simulator, displaying various aircraft flight parameters, programmed in C++ language and utilizes the windows forms for implementing graphical content.

Adaptive Human-Robot Interactions for Multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

Results from the online adaptation phase showed that the CHMI2 system was able to support real-time inference and human-machine interface and interaction (HMI2) adaptation, however, the accuracy of the inferred workload was variable across the different participants.

Coverage path planning using mobile robot team formations

The authors present theoretical and experimental results of the proposed approach using e-puck mini-robots, and some preliminary results to lay the foundation of future research for improved coverage path planning using coalition game-based, structured, robot team reconfiguration techniques.

The Exploitation of Data from Remote and Human Sensors for Environment Monitoring in the SMAT Project

The functionalities of a system that integrates and controls a fleet of Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAVs) and the software architecture for the development of a mash-up and the possibility of using human sensors in the monitoring of the territory are outlined.

Numerical and Temporal Planning for a Multi-agent Team Acting in the Real World

This work aims at showing how complex realworld multi-agent problems involving consumable resources, continuous numeric change, time and multi- agent coordination can be faced with action-based approaches such as numerical and temporal planning by employing state-of-art general purpose planners.

Experimental Results in Multi-UAV Coordination for Disaster Management and Civil Security Applications

This paper describes a multi-UAV distributed decisional architecture developed in the framework of the AWARE Project together with a set of tests with real Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and

System Development and Demonstration of a Cooperative UAV Team for Mapping and Tracking

The implementation and demonstration of a team of two fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles whose task is to improve the localization accuracy of a number of ground-based features is presented, including vehicle localization, feature tracking, path planning and cooperative control.

Cooperative task scheduling for networked uninhabited air vehicles

This work shows how to view this cooperative control problem for a network of uninhabited air vehicles as a cooperative scheduling problem, and how to derive bounds on mission-level performance metrics.

Mixed-Initiative Planning in Space Mission Operations

The mixed-initiative aspects of the MAPGEN system are discussed, focusing on the task, control, and awareness issues.

Exploiting Automatic Validation in Human Mission Planning

An automatic validation module is described which provides the operator with feedback on the flaws in the plan she is specifying and, when possible, also with explanations of such flaws and suggestions for fixing them.

Multi-UAV Cooperation and Control for Load Transportation and Deployment

An architecture to perform cooperative missions with a multi-UAV platform is presented and the interactions between UAVs are not only information exchanges but also physical couplings required to cooperate in the joint transportation of a single load.

Path Planning Strategies for UAVS in 3D Environments

The application of basic Theta* to tri-dimensional path planning will be presented and the algorithm is applied to orographic obstacles and in urban environments, to evaluate the solution for different kinds of obstacles.

A SOA-Based System for Territory Monitoring

This chapter outlines the functionalities of a system that integrates sensor data transmitted by a fleet of unmanned aircrafts for territorial surveillance and protection from natural disasters and presents a service for the annotation of the interested spatial objects.

Explanations and Recommendations for Temporal Inconsistencies

The approach to explanation and recommendation is generally applicable to constraint-based reasoning systems; however, the motivation and validation of the approach derive from a deployed planning system for planetary rover missions.
