Named CoUAV, the simulation capability gives the flexibility to capture and customize high-level abstract key components and stochastic events specifically aimed at exploring team coordination strategies for distributed information gathering, while abstracting costly low-level system specifications or huge infrastructure maintenance and operational costs. The environment provides the user with problem definition, visualization and post-simulation solution analysis capabilities. Simulation results are presented for a military multi-UAV reconnaissance/target search mission comparing two solution designs. The versatility and flexibility of the environment is well-suited to explore the strengths and weaknesses of new and existing coordination strategies through comparative performance analysis over a variety of resource-bounded search path planning problem conditions.
