Abstract:

The Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Targeting vehicle is a technological demonstrator program jointly funded by the Marine Corps and the Defense Advance Research Project Agency. The Office of Naval Research, acting for the Marine Corps, has responsibility for program execution while the Naval Surface Warfare Center and the Defense Advance Research Project Agency share technical management responsibility. The demonstrator programs objective is to evaluate the applicability of electric drive propulsion for a wheeled vehicle that can be internally transported in the Marine Corps Osprey aircraft the MV-22. The demonstrator program is in the second of a two-phased development, with a total value of 30.6 million for four vehicles for Navy and Marine Corps test and evaluation. If the options are exercised another 38.6 million would be expended.
