Intelligent Vehicle Autonomy for the Most Challenging Missions
Metron develops innovative autonomy technologies enabling complex missions in challenging environments. Focus areas include autonomy for adaptive decision making, mission planning, health monitoring, simulation systems, and perception.Join Our Team
Metron’s autonomy provides the core capabilities underlying our unmanned vehicle programs. Our autonomy combines advanced behaviors with innovative sensing and logic to support the most challenging of missions, including operations in dynamic environments where unanticipated events are likely, extended duration missions, and missions with multiple goals.
Autonomous vehicles function in environments where they must operate and adapt to a variety of dynamic situations, without human controllers. Developing the capabilities that enable these systems to adapt and make appropriate decisions is crucial for oceanic operations, such as search, exploration, and infrastructure inspection, and intervention missions.
