Sea Train concept to include mission-level autonomy
Scientific Systems Company is to support prime contractor Gibbs & Cox on the DARPA Sea Train programme for unmanned naval logistics.
Under a subcontract worth an undisclosed amount, Scientific Systems will provide mission-level autonomy and control systems to automate the connection and disconnection of Sea Train vessels.
The company specialises in providing AI-enabled autonomous software systems. It stated on 13 October that it will develop algorithms to optimise Sea Train propulsion and fuel consumption for transoceanic transit ‘by balancing environmental conditions, mission objectives, and own-ship conditions while arbitrating path planning, seakeeping, and efficiency goals’.
In Sea Train, DARPA envisages transoceanic and long-range operations undertaken by USVs, either physically connected or sailing in formation.
