2016: DOLL wins DARPA Distributed Autonomous Network Communication Enabler (DANCE) contract to develop autonomous quad-copter network

DANCE will feature a self-organizing team of quadcopters (or a combination of quadcopters, unmanned winged aircraft, and ground robots) that implement a dynamic, ad hoc communication network that is robust to attacks and disturbances. These unmanned vehicles will be controlled by a mesh of automated distributed planners, guided by mission models.
