Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to provide the Program Manager for the Unmanned Ground VehiclesSystems Joint Program Office UGVS JPO of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Joint Robotics Program with a quick summary of the introduction of small teleoperated robots to disasterrelated search and rescue operations following the 11 September 2001 terrorist attack upon the World Trade Center in New York City. This report will also list certain lessons learned from that event and propose recommendations based upon those lessons for future development, deployment, and operation of urban search and rescue robotic tools. The scope of this report is limited generally to the experiences of the SSC San Diego URBOT team however, where possible we include additional information that was generously provided by four other technology team leaders who were also involved in the WTC search and rescue efforts.E
