John Shea Co-PI on Newly Created Air Force Center of Excellence

The Air Force Research Laboratory and the University of Florida recently announced the creation of a new university-led Center of Excellence (COE) for assured autonomy in contested environments. The $6 million investment brings together a diverse team of experts to research autonomous systems in environments where adversaries might be attempting to take control of, or exploit, friendly information systems.

ECE professor Dr. John Shea is a co-PI on the project—his research in the Center will focus on networked autonomous systems and improving the interface between networks and control systems.

More information about the Center is available on the Air Force website.
