Dr. C.A. Rabbath -- A Brief Discussion on Networked, Collaborative and Autonomous Systems
Description: The seminar will overview a selected sample of science and technology (S&T)contributions in the broad area of networked, collaborative and autonomous systems(NCAS). The application of NCAS concepts to cooperative motion, interceptor tactics, and team defense will be discussed. The focus of the presentation will be on providing a high-level, generic view of a number of NCAS S&T areas. We will highlight a set of research questions, generic scenarios, and challenges/issues that partially motivate the work in NCAS. A summary of collaborations with academia will also be presented.
Presenter: Dr. C.A. Rabbath obtained his Ph.D. degree from McGill University, Montreal, with a specialization in sampled-data control systems design and analysis. He has extensive experience in the modelling and simulation of dynamic systems, and in the design of guidance, navigation, and control systems for aircraft, mobile robots, and unmanned air vehicles. He has worked in industry and in academia, and as a scientist at DRDC for several years. One of his research interests is the design, analysis, implementation, and testing of networked, collaborative and autonomous systems. He has served on several committees for organizations including IEEE, NSERC, and ICUAS, and associate editor for IEEE and IFAC journals and magazines.
