The Mobile UAS Research Collaboratory (MURC) will enable researchers and UAS operators to investigate, design, and assess new algorithms and strategies for autonomous information gathering. Sensor data from multiple, coordinated sensors will be streamed into MURC where it will be collected, processed, and interpreted in the field. Mercedes Benz built the van and was then sent to the outfitter, Specialized, who installed the mast, server rack, and benches.
