November 9, 2017
IMAGE: DAHLGREN, Va. (Sept. 12, 2017) - Navy Sly Fox Mission 22 junior scientists and engineers brief Lt. Akwasi Fosu on the new capabilities of Weaponized Autonomous System Prototype (WASP) after a demonstration held at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division.  The seven-member Mission 22 team integrated WASP with an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to provide an aerial perspective for increased situational awareness. Navy civilian and military personnel witnessed the Mission 22 demonstration of the Collaborative Aerial Network for the Autonomous Remote Engagement System – fully-integrated with the UAV, WASP, and a command and control station while detecting, tracking, and engaging targets on the Potomac River Test Range.
