Abstract:

The collaboration of Command and Control C2 systems with Unmanned Ground Vehicles UGVs provides Integrated Force Protection from the Robotic Operation Command Center. Autonomous UGVs are directed as Force Projection units. UGV payloads and fixed sensors provide situational awareness while unattended munitions provide a less-than-lethal response capability. Remote resources serve as automated interfaces to legacy physical devices such as manned response vehicles. barrier gates. fence openings. garage doors. and remote power onoff capability for unmanned systems. The Robotic Operations Command Center executes the Multiple Resource Host Architecture MRHA to simu1taneously control heterogeneous unmanned systems. The MRHA graphically displays video map and status for each resource using wireless digital communications for integrated data video and audio. Events are prioritized and the user is prompted with audio alerts and text instntctions for alarmss and warnings. A control hierarchy of missions and duty rosters support autonomous operations.
