Nevada is home to many DOD facilities, including Nellis Air Force Base, Fallon Naval Air Station, and the Hawthorne Army Ammunition Depot. One of the chief long-term benefits of the Nevada DOD EPSCoR program has been the development of capabilities among Nevada faculty for performing research related to these Nevada DOD sites and other DOD issues nationally and globally.
The team investigates, prototypes, and evaluates a revolutionary genetic algorithm based artificial intelligence learning system that uses newly developed technology and learns from subject matter experts to generate realistic, adaptive, appropriately competitive opposing forces and control strategy for decision making simulations.
The team develops methodologies for understanding intent and applies them to tasks relevant to the military. The proposed approach relies on a novel formulation of Hidden Markov Models (HMMs), which allows a robot to understand the intent of others by virtually assuming their place and detecting their potential intentions based on the current situation.
The team proposes the materials and the environment contained in high power microwave devices play an important role in design efficiency and optimization.
Current DEPSCoR solicitations and program collaborations are administered by the eligible institution (UNR and UNLV) revised 2009 BAA
