Assistant Professor Nuno Martins (ECE/ISR) has received a three-year, $270,000 grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) for "Networked guidance and control for mobile multi-agent systems: a multi-terminal (network) information theoretic approach."

This research will develop computationally efficient methods for the joint design of guidance/control and wireless communication modules for multi-agent networked control systems.

The new framework will include guidance objectives which must be accomplished while also guaranteeing the multi-agent communication network supports a secure and disruption-free exchange of data. Martins will develop optimal guidance/controller design methods that allow for new types of specifications involving the rates of data transmission among agents in the presence of interference and transmission power constraints. These modules could find use in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), where it is crucial to have guaranteed inter-agent rates of data transmission.
