Unmanned Ground & Air System for CBRNE Contaminated Personnel Recovery
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The solicited objective is to develop a design concept for a collaborative UAS / UGS system to recover casualties and remains from CBRNE contaminated areas. The primary challenge in developing the design concept lies in the integration of aerial and ground unmanned systems to an extent that has not been accomplished before. The effort will start with development of a CBRNE personnel recovery mission-oriented Concept of Operations (CONOPS), from which requirements will be derived for the design concept. The requirements will form the basis for parameters in trade studies which will be used to arrive at decisions on the most cost effective design attributes. As the design concept evolves, its feasibility will be validated by modeling and simulation. Additionally, component demonstrations will be conducted using simulations, breadboards and actual hardware. Finally two plans will be prepared. One will be a Prototype Development Plan and the other will be a Test and Evaluation Plan to support prototype demonstrations in Phase II.
