Monitoring and controlling multiple autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) can quickly become cumbersome, especially when dealing with missions extending over multiple days and when dealing with heterogeneous vehicles. The goal of ASMAC is to simplify this process so that it is easier for a user to monitor and control heterogeneous vehicles. ASMAC would achieve this through the use of a common control language (CCL) that provides a common interface to heterogeneous systems and interactive planning models to help the user in the mission planning phase. ASMAC would also interface to the cooperative AUV development concept (CADCON) simulation environment to help the user verify mission plans.
