NPS leads collaborative effort to inspire innovation across government, beyond

Dr. Timothy Chung, an assistant professor with the NPS Department of Systems Engineering, describes the on-board intelligence of the Unicorn unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) during a Joint Interagency Field Exploration (JIFX) event held by the Naval Postgraduate School, Aug. 5-8. Chung’s research team hopes to utilize the Unicorn, and its autonomous capabilities, to demonstrate how only a few ground operators can command up to 50 aircraft simultaneously.
