Associate Professor Derek Paley (AE/ISR) is the principal investigator for a three-year, $600K grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. The grant is for "Optimized Routing of Intelligent, Mobile Sensors for Dynamic, Data-Driven Sampling."

The long-term goal of this project is to provide a control-theoretic framework to enable intelligent, mobile systems to optimally collect sensor-based observations that yield accurate estimates of unknown processes pertaining to Air Force research, including human/vehicle surveillance and airborne contaminant release. Paley will apply tools from aerospace engineering, specifically nonlinear estimation and control, to design coordinated sampling trajectories that yield the most informative measurements of estimated dynamical and stochastic systems.
