Towards fully autonomous underwater vehicles in ASW scenarios: An adaptive, data driven AUV mission management layer

We present an adaptive, data driven Mission Management Layer (MML) to manage the phases (surveillance, track prosecution and target reacquisition) of the mission of AUVs operating as receiver nodes in a multistatic network for littoral surveillance. Among the tracks produced by the on board tracker, the MML selects those which are likely originated by a… CONTINUE READING
