Teams from around the world deploy autonomous systems--rolling, walking, flying, and floating--to remotely map, identify, and report the greatest number of artifacts along physical and virtual underground courses in DARPA’s Subterranean (SubT) Challenge.
With the completion of the first two scored events, the Tunnel and Urban Circuits, teams are preparing to take on the challenges of the Cave Circuit and Final Event. As DARPA has pivoted to an all-virtual competition for the upcoming Cave Circuit, the 17 virtual competitors are readying to explore the cave environments and attempt to identify artifacts during a timed run.
The Final Event, still planned for late-2021, will put teams to the test, both in-person and virtually, with a competition that incorporates elements from all three underground environments. Integration of navigation, mobility, communication, and networking capabilities will be critical to succeed in the competition.
DARPA’s SubT Challenge is motivated by needs of warfighters and first responder communities as they execute their future missions underground.
