Unmanned Ground & Air System for CBRNE Contaminated Personnel Recovery
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
DPI proposes to simulate and flight demonstrate the DP-12 Rhino VTOL UAS as a surrogate for the Combat Medic UAS operating in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high-yield Explosive (CBRNE) environment. The DP-12 autonomous tandem helicopter will prove its ability to minimize the time needed to map the progression of a CBRNE event as it moves across time, altitude, and geography. Simulation of efficient real-time mapping and planning will quantify the desired behavior and performance for an airborne CBRNE detection system. The DP-12 UAS will then validate the system through limited objective experiments to place, monitor, and adapt a CBRNE sensor network. The demonstrations will exploit the operational envelope of the unmanned aircraft systems' (UAS) capabilities in complex terrain to autonomously monitor and map a contaminant field. Mapping the CBRNE dispersion efficiently is critical to expedite safe ingress, egress, and evasive maneuvers of personnel to prevent further loss of life and limit exposure to harmful agents.
