Abstract

Advancements in the domain of artificial intelligence, safety management, and on-board fault tolerance have led to autonomous devices to be considered as a key element for future remote defence and peaceful missions. Drones-Also known as autonomous or unmanned vehicles-with different capabilities and features-can be organized in a fleet and the fleet can be organized in a way that will increase the survivability of the drones and improve mission success. This can be accomplished by balancing system effectiveness design parameters such as endurance, communications, sensor fusion, domain awareness, area coverage rates and human operator interaction against mission costs.
