The Multi-Agent Decentralized Planning for Adversarial Robotic Teams (MADPARTS) project addresses next-generation autonomy issues by developing decentralized multi-agent planning techniques that include a changing adversary model in a real-time mission environment.

Our scenarios for testing MADPARTS featured two teams: a team of collaborative robots in a patrol, force-protection, or intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) scenario and a team of adversarial robots attempting to gain ISR on allied forces or neutralize an important allied asset.

We selected Platypus LLC's Lutra platform, a type of unmanned prop-based boat platform, as a test vehicle and worked with the local company to field a fleet of seven Lutra systems on lakes near Pittsburgh.

In field trials, with imperfect communication and GPS localization, the defensive formations were able to prevent line of sight between the aggressor and the target more than 97% of the time, even when the aggressor was twice as fast as the defenders!
