UNL NIMBUS Lab developing drone swarm enhancements for U.S. Army through NSRI
Led by Dr. Justin Bradley, the Nebraska Intelligent MoBile Unmanned Systems (NIMBUS) Lab at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is working to develop an algorithm to control drone swarms for intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions. The $250,000 project through the National Strategic Research Institute (NSRI) at the University of Nebraska will leverage the lab’s custom-built "mothership" drone, years of experience and desire to take on the challenge of real-world limitations. The work is funded by the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) Army Research Laboratory, which is looking to swarming technology to be able to execute time-consuming or dangerous tasks using unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
