Abstract:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory performed a series of pilot studies for the Countermine Division at the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate concerning how a mine detection sensor suite might be implemented on a teleoperated unmanned ground vehicle UGV. The studies addressed five areas mobility, human factors, radio communications, the use of infrared cameras for remote driving, and options for attaching the sensor array to the UGV. This report describes the proposed countermine system, the issues identified by the studies, and recommendations concerning how such a system might be implemented.
