RACER

The goal of the RACER program is to develop and demonstrate autonomy technologies that enable unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) to maneuver in unstructured, off-road terrain at the limit of the vehicle's mechanical systems and at, or beyond, human-driven speeds and efficiencies.

Unmanned Air System — UAS

The APL-UW unmanned air system (UAS) testbed is a collaborative project involving researchers specializing in autonomy, remote sensing, and ocean science instrumentation. This effort represents the beginning of a research program to extend our expertise into the aerial domain.

The overarching goal of this project is to develop new opportunities for basic and applied research. The work focuses not only on UAS technology (marine applications in particular) but also on the development of tools that will transform how research is conducted at sea. Recent tests with the prototype system have verified stability and key performance characteristics, with flight duration exceeding 20 mins and a top speed exceeding 30 knots.

OceanGate/APL-UW Joint Venture to Produce a Manned Submersible

Laboratory engineers are teaming with OceanGate to design and produce Cyclops, a submarine that could take five people nearly two miles deep into the ocean. It will be smaller, lighter, and operated at a much lower cost than today's manned subs.
