SIS to Develop Automated Maritime Navigation and Control System

Spatial Integrated Systems (SIS) has declared that Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has offered them a significant contract as a result of their latest launch of Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program.

As per this agreement, SIS will partner with Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division (NSWCCD) and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA JPL), to develop a system for performing autonomous maritime navigation and control operations.

Rick Simon, Director of SIS's Autonomous Maritime Navigation (AMN) program, has stated that this contract is a major milestone in the advancement of their autonomous maritime surface vessel efficiencies, depicting their matchless sophistication in maritime autonomy.

The period of preliminary agreement is six months. It involves the revelation of technical viability in developing cognitive abilities for tracing silent electric/diesel submarines for an extensive period under sparse remote surveillance control. The outcome of this demo will be utilized to develop initial monitoring stipulations for the autonomy system of the ACTUV. The AMN system of the company denotes the present cutting-edge in unmanned vessel autonomy. It offers an autonomous managerial function which can be employed in any USV. Artificial intelligence that was actually created for Mars investigation rovers by NASA JPL serves as a significant feature of the AMN system’ cognitive abilities. It was reported that the AUCTUV program will build an innovative automated naval vessel which will be operated under little remote surveillance, with a dominant propulsive overmatch against dangerous submarines for offering a game-altering ASW functional ability to the US Navy.
