This Statement of Work covers the need for the services of a college student to provide technical and/or analytical support in the field(s) of computer science, computer engineering, mechanical engineering and computational science for the Center for Innovative Naval Technologies-Information Warfare (CINT-IW) Heterogeneous Autonomous Marine Mobile Expeditionary Robots (HAMMER) project. The purpose of this project is to successfully integrate Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) for search, identify, and intervention missions at sea.
Until recent developments in technology, the combination of USV, UAVs, and UUVs had only been visions for the future. Now, various research groups from around the world are making the connections needed for the successful implementation of this idea. The team plans on creating a successful combination of the Unmanned Systems (UxVs) for future missions at sea. The HAMMER project utilizes a Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel (WAM-V) catamaran USV as the central node and main transport mechanism to carry UAVs and UUVs to distances over 100 miles. The system is designed to be modular and can easily be scaled up if needed.
