Machine-to-machine teaming is the trend of future warfare aiming at maximizing effectiveness of heterogeneous assets while performing a specific task or mission. Currently, modern militaries employ autonomous systems such as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and unmanned ground systems (UGS) independently with separate missions. This study explores the possibility of utilizing an autonomous swarm composed of UAS and UGS working in tandem in the improvised explosive device (IED) clearance mission in the urban environment. In this mission, the UAS serves as the "eyes" to detect IED within a specific area assigned by an operator, while the UGS as the "hands and legs" to respond and neutralize the IED detected by the UAS. The thesis uses Cameo Systems Modeler, an industry-leading cross-platform collaborative model-based systems engineering (MBSE) environment, to model the joint UAS and UGS mission and then integrate it with a domain-specific MATLAB/Simulink environment where high-fidelity UAS and UGS models were developed.
