DARPA looking for: Unmanned Aircraft Systems autonomy methods

The Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program will explore non-traditional perception and autonomy methods that enable new classes of minimalistic algorithms for high-speed aerial navigation in cluttered environments.Through this exploration, the program will develop and demonstrate the capability for small and fast unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to fly autonomously through complex, cluttered environments. The FLA program focuses on autonomy algorithms and software – specifically on sensing, perception, planning, and control – rather than on the flight hardware platform.
