October 8, 2011 — Dr. Daniel J. Pack will
present an overview of unmanned systems research and training activities
at the U.S. Air Force Academy. He will describe a number of current
research projects at the Academy Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems
Research that are sponsored by government organizations and industry
partners to develop heterogeneous, cooperative unmanned systems
technologies. He will also share the results of a research project on a
heterogeneous, mobile sensor network, consisting of unmanned aircraft,
mobile ground robots, and a set of stationary ground sensors,
cooperating to perform the intelligence, surveillance, and
reconnaissance (ISR) mission. Daniel J. Pack, professor of Electrical
and Computer Engineering and Director of the Academy Center for Unmanned
Aircraft Systems Research at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado,
