The RC ATO 2004-2008, a joint program between the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center TARDEC and the Army Research Laboratory ARL, has the mission of developing the appropriate tools, techniques and autonomy to maximize mounted and dismounted control of ground unmanned systems and optimize Soldier-robot and robot-robot teams. This was accomplished through the development and testing of assisted autonomy and situational awareness solutions, optimizing Soldier-machine interface usability across varying display sizes, control devices and dissimilar robotic systems and the deployment of unique multi-modal control techniques. The ATO concluded its Capstone Experiment and demonstration in September 2008. This paper will detail the technology developed and utilized under the program as well as highlight Capstone Experiment results.
