The 3rd Biannual Meeting for this year’s COE for Assured Autonomy in Contested Environments took place virtually, due to the COVID-19 response. Hosted by the University of California, Santa Cruz, the meeting brought experts and researchers from Air Force Research Laboratory – AFRL, AFOSR, University of Florida, Duke University, The University of Texas at Austin, and UCSC together to share the latest advancements in assured autonomy. Professor Ricardo Sanfelice provided opening remarks for the two-day meeting.
“This center’s is focused on the interaction between the system’s or system of system’s physics with its software and hardware while it operates in a contested environment. This is a problem is of much higher dimension and complexity and has no viable solutions. This COE, if successful, will provide the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) with solutions enabling trustworthy autonomous space systems for when space becomes contested” – Dr. Fred Leve, Lead Program Officer for Dynamics and Control
