Charles River Analytics Inc., developer of intelligent systems solutions, has partnered with the University of Southern California, Harvard University, the University of Birmingham, and Metron, to develop Probabilistic Representation of Intent Commitments to Ensure Software Survival (PRINCESS). In our PRINCESS effort, part of DARPA’s BRASS program, we developed methods that would allow an unmanned underwater vehicle’s (UUV’s) software to adapt to change, both within the UUV itself and in its external ecosystem.
"We envision military software that can make significant adaptations on its own,” said Dr. Avi Pfeiffer, Chief Scientist at Charles River Analytics and Principal Investigator on our PRINCESS effort. “With PRINCESS, we are closer to software that can quickly and autonomously adapt to changes in its environment."

Charles River Analytics conducts leading-edge AI, robotics, and human-machine interface R&D and leverages that R&D to create custom solutions for your organization.
At Charles River Analytics, we come to work every day because we want to develop technology for the hardest human-machine teaming problems that impact critical operations and decision-making. In 1983, we began focusing on research that leads to results, initially working for the US government. We became an employee-owned company in 2012, setting the stage for the next generation of innovation, service, and growth. Today, we have nearly 200 employees who work on R&D and commercial programs that make a difference for a “who’s who” of government and industry.
We have a stellar track record developing successful solutions for Government and commercial clients across a diverse collection of markets—defense, intelligence, medical technology, training, transportation, space, and cyber security. Our success is based on our expertise with advanced algorithms, machine learning, autonomous systems, advanced human-system interfaces, and agile software and hardware engineering. Focused research can make a positive difference, and that is our goal on each project we undertake. Our customer-centric focus guides us towards problems that matter, while our passion for science and engineering drives us to find impactful, actionable solutions.
