Abstract : The goal of this MURI project is to develop the tools required for the systematic design of cooperative control systems for distributed vehicles in adversarial environments. The project is a collaborative effort between the participating institutions of Caltech, Cornell, MIT, and UCLA. The following ``dimensions'' of cooperative control offer an effective breakdown of the cooperative control landsacpe: 1) Distributed control and computation, 2) Adversarial interactions, 3) Uncertain evolution, and 4) Complexity management. The five year MURI effort has identified and addressed many subproblems in the cooperative control landscape and has produces both simulation and hardware testbeds.
