Software development kit for unmanned systems

07/13/2006


RE2 JAUS Software Development Kit (SDK) Version 1.0 and its RE2 Solution Services from RE2 Inc. allows military and commercial unmanned systems developers to design and implement a JAUS-compliant system. JAUS (Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems) is a Department of Defense (DoD) mandated software-messaging protocol developed to establish a standard for unmanned ground, surface, and underwater vehicles that enables interoperability between unmanned systems and components.

The kit includes:

  • Development libraries, including message packing/unpacking and UDP/IP delivery;

  • Routing binaries, including node managers and communicators; and

  • Software documentation, including a user’s guide, an interactive HTML-based manual, and component examples.

Prior to the release of version 1.0, RE2 conducted beta testing with unmanned systems vendors and research universities, including AnthroTronix Inc., DRS Unmanned Technologies, Bluefield State University, and Drexel University.

RE2 Inc.— Robotics Engineering Excellence —is a Carnegie Mellon spin-off specializing in agile defense robotics with an emphasis on JAUS-compliant unmanned systems and components. It specializes in ground vehicle retrofits, production-ready JAUS-based controller development, system integration, rapid prototyping, and field testing. It also provides expert solution services and consulting.
