Abstract:

The Army has a need to integrate robotic technologies, leveraged from both Army and commercial sector developments, into an FCS Armed Robotic Vehicle ARV class chassis. The US Armys ARV Robotic Technologies ART Science and Technology Objective STO will develop a surrogate platform that will be used as a technology demonstrator for such robotic technologies. The ART STO will develop, integrate and demonstrate the technology required to advance the maneuver technologies i.e., perception, mobility, tactical behaviors and increase the survivability of unmanned platforms for the future force. The ART STO will focus on reducing the soldiers burden by providing an increase in vehicle autonomy coinciding with a decrease in the total number user interventions required to control the unmanned assets.
