Abstract : The Naval Command, Control and Ocean Surveillance Center (NCCOSC) RDT&E Division (NRaD) has developed a command and control architecture to provide coordinated control of multiple autonomous interior and exterior vehicles from a single host console. The Multiple Robot Host Architecture (MRHA) is a distributed multiprocessing system that can be expanded to accommodate as many as 32 remote platforms. The initial application will employ eight Cybermotion K2A Navmaster robots configured… Expand
