The Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research provides specialized facilities to support highly innovative, multidisciplinary research in autonomous systems, including intelligent autonomy, sensor systems, power and energy systems, human-system interaction, networking and communications, and platforms. The Laboratory capitalizes on the broad multidisciplinary character of NRL, bringing together scientists and engineers with disparate training and backgrounds to attack common goals in autonomous systems at the intersection of their respective fields. The Laboratory provides unique facilities and simulated environments (littoral, desert, tropical) and instrumented reconfigurable high bay spaces to support integration of science and technology components into research prototype systems. The objective of the Laboratory is to enable Navy and DoD scientific leadership in this complex, emerging area and to identify opportunities for advances in future defense technology.
The Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research can host scientists from other institutions for both short-term visits and long-term visits, who are collaborating with NRL scientists. The Director for the Laboratory for Autonomous Systems Research, Alan C. Schultz, reports to NRL's Director of Research.
"We will be unmanned under, on and above the sea. We need to have an organic, unmanned, persistent, unblinking eye capability." Admiral Michael G. Mullen CNO, 26 Oct 2005
