Abstract:

In support of the Networked Unmanned Ground Air System NUGAS Experiment, and in support of evolving unmanned vehicles capabilities in general, the TARDEC Embedded Simulation System ESS has undergone significant modifications. These changes include updated hardware to support the latest off-the-shelf graphics products, a re-architecting of the ESS system software to support unmanned vehicle mission planning and crewstation independent modeless operation, the addition of Unmanned Air Vehicle UAV control, and database and Semi-Automated Forces SAF support specific for NUGAS. As the new ESS is still a work in progress, planned capabilities will be discussed as well as the differences from earlier versions of the ESS used in support of the Unmanned Combat Demonstration UCD and Crew integration and Automation Testbed CAT phase one activities.
