Abstract:

The purpose of the UGVMP is to provide a single, integrated DoD document that lays out the strategy for introducing supervised robotic vehicles into our forces and the plan for development and acquisition of UGV systems. The UGVMP describes the conceptual and management framework within which robotics projects are being pursued, the details of these projects, and the relationships among them. OSD is using the UGVMP as a management tool in fulfilling its responsibilities for overseeing the robotics program. The program has been structured to progress from teleoperation--where a remotely located human directly controls the UGV--to reliance on autonomous onboard performance of UGV functions with the operator in a supervisory role and able to supervise multiple UGVs concurrently
