Pioneering The Way Forward

The Challenge:

The DARPA Subterranean or “SubT” Challenge seeks novel approaches to rapidly map, navigate, and search underground environments during time-sensitive combat operations or disaster response scenarios.

Core Technologies:
Reconfigurable Multi-Modal Platforms

Rapid reconfiguration to assemble heterogeneous agents

Robust, Coordinated and Efficient Exploration

Redundancy in algorithms and communication options

Multi-Modal Sensing and SLAM

LiDAR, 3D & imaging cameras, dropped ranging-radio anchors

Semantic Mapping

Detect objects of interest

Robust Communication

Mesh network, communications planning
