Charles River Analytics VP Talks Robotic Swarms for National Security Mission - top government contractors - best government contracting eventMike Farry, principal scientist and vice president for socio-cognitive systems at Charles River Analytics, has said drone swarm technology offers new research opportunities related to human-machine collaboration.

He delivered a presentation about the Swarm Algorithms and Tactics for Urban Reconnaissance and Isolation project and similar efforts during a recent workshop held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lincoln Laboratory, Charles River said Wednesday.

“People are starting to use unmanned autonomous vehicles in creative ways, each of which has a different impact on national security,” said Farry.

“It is imperative that we study these new classes of challenges to avoid surprises from bad actors,“ he added.

The company aims to build tools intended to manage behavior of heterogeneous swarms under the SATURN initiative to help warfighters achieve mission goals despite adversarial interference.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency selected Charles River earlier this year to create algorithms, tactics and primitives that can support urban military operations.
