We model the pursuit problem as a set of distributed agents communicating over a network subject to latency. Latency has serious deleterious effects on solving the pursuit problem. In this paper, we present a simple, yet effective way of dealing with latency that yields very good performance. Our method disperses predators within a region in which the prey may move that accounts for network latency.
