Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) collaboratively play central roles in intelligence gathering and control in urban/border surveillance and crowd control. In this paper, we first propose a comprehensive planning and control framework based on dynamic-data-driven, adaptive multi-scale simulation (DDDAMS). We then discuss proposed algorithms enabling DDDAMS capability based on several methods such as 1) Bayesian-based information aggregation/disaggregation, 2) dynamic information updating based on observation/simulation, 3) temporal and spatial data fusion for enhanced performance, 4) multi-resolution strategy in temporal tracking frequency, and 5) cached intelligent observers. Finally, preliminary results based on the proposed framework, algorithms, and testbeds are discussed.
