The U.S. Navy awarded Georgia Tech Applied Research Corp. (GTARC) a contract valued $35 million for the effort titled “Heterogeneous Autonomy Prototyping Evolution.”

This contract provides for the investigation of heterogeneity across the swarm and super swarm systems. Heterogeneity in multiple sensor modalities will allow for more robust target detection and confidence, and allow for combination of swarm payload variants to achieve the goals of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance and targeting missions, the Pentagon said in a release today.

The investigation will also consider how this architecture can work with other autonomy architectures seamlessly to combine for instance heterogeneity in platforms and heterogeneity across domains.

Work will be performed in Atlanta, Georgia, with an expected completion date of Jan. 12, 2025.
