Abstract:

The purpose of this 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 unmanned ground vehicle 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 oversight of the robotics program. The primary emphasis of the efforts described in this report is on teleoperated and supervised unmanned ground vehicles, i.e., unmanned systems that move over the ground referred to simply as UGVs in this report. A variety of potential applications of UGV systems are mentioned in the report, but detailed discussion is limited to those applications that are being pursued
