Autonomy for Surface Ship Interception and Engagement (AforSSIE)

Principal Investigator Pierre Lermusiaux

The long-term goal is to develop autonomy for AUVs to enable intercept and proximity operations with underway surface vessels. In collaboration with the Lincoln Lab researchers and personnel, and other MIT PIs our specific objectives are to:

(*) Model and simulate elements of surface ship encounter and develop required AUV autonomy
(*) Perform flow modeling and autonomy development, and leverage experiments of opportunity and existing assets for in-water demonstrations.
