Abstract:

Reconnaissance of sites suspected to contain chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats is currently a manned mission - one that exposes humans to health risks and that relies on imperfect human observations. Lincoln Laboratory participated in an advanced technology demonstration program aimed at improving the safety and efficacy of this manned mission by supplementing it with robotics-based reconnaissance. The resulting prototype system consists of an unmanned ground vehicle equipped with an integrated sensor suite that relays mission-critical data to a web-based user interface viewable by geographically distributed stakeholders.
