DSTO Australia concluded a two year research program in March 2006 that demonstrated distributed, autonomous, self-organising stand-in sensor and effector systems. This paper describes research activities from this program including the development of miniaturised sensor and effector payloads, the development of novel algorithms for the fusion of data from distributed sensor payloads and the development of novel aircraft control algorithms to enable near optimal geo-location of pop-up emitters. The paper also describes field trials in which information products from these systems were injected into command support systems for integration and visualisation with other data to support situational awareness. A follow-on program has been approved and is also overviewed in this paper.
