Abstract:

THE TECHNOLOGY TO ALLOW REPLACEMENT OF PERSONNEL BY MOBILE ROBOTS IN HIGH RISK SITUATIONS EXISTS TODAY. THE NEAR TERM APPROACH, NOT REQUIRING EXTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE REQUIRES USE OF A BROAD BANDWIDTH SECURE, ANTI JAM COMMUNICATIONS LINK TO ALLOW MAN-IN-THE-LOOP OPERATION. THIS PROGRAM PROPOSES TO STUDY THE MAKE-UP OF SUCH LINKS FOR SHORT, INTERMEDIATE AND LONG RANGE ROBOTIC MISSIONS; TO SELECT CONFIGURATIONS FOR FURTHER STUDY; AND TO ESTIMATE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM COSTS AND SCHEDULE AND PRODUCTION COSTS OF SELECTED LINKS. RECOMMENDED FOLLOW-ON EFFORT BASED ON THESE STUDIES WILL BE DEFINED.
