Autonomous systems will evolve in an unplanned environment and adapt their behavior to maximise mission efficiency. Trusted (Integrity), accurate and predictable navigation is the common critical factor to all types of mission operated by either a single or multiple collaborative platforms.
On-board mission AI (Artificial Intelligence) will determine several navigation paths to reach the target including mission constraints such as exclusion zone, inhibit RF emission (DVL, Sonar, USBL, LBL ..), duration to reach target, minimum localization accuracy on target, number and location of surface points, stop on sea bed, target direction of approach, energy optimization. Each computed potential navigation path will be fully simulated in four dimensions (space and time) using the TopAxyz navigation model. Therefore, mission AI can choose the most appropriate navigation path to fulfil the mission.
TopAxyz has already demonstrated, by representative simulation, its capability to optimize mission trajectory. By using its predictable characteristics, TopAxyz is able to minimize and optimize active system usage (DVL, Sonar) for stealthy navigation, immune from its external environment (tide, water current) while preserving the required accuracy. TopAxyz’s predictable and stealthy worldwide navigation capabilities will be the foundation of a performant fully autonomous decision-making AI.
