30 September 2003 Overview of UGCV and PerceptOR status
Author Affiliations +
DARPA has been leading two programs under joint sponsorship with the Army which are directed at advancement of unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) technologies in support of the Future Combat Systems (FCS) Program. These two programs are intended to provide complimentary developments to allow the Army with its Lead Systems Integrator an expanded set of technology options as it goes through its system trade studies. The data and experiences derived from these programs also increase understanding of current capabilities and future growth trends to aid in requirements definition for FCS UGV elements of the force structure. These two programs: Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle (UGCV), and Perception for Off-Road Robotics (PerceptOR) will be described in this paper with comments on their current status.
