Urban Combat Structure Mapping (UCSM)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) proposes an Urban Combat Structure Mapping system (UCSM) which consists of a suite of sensors on an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) that is interconnected via an encoded low bandwidth network to other members of the attack force. The network allows sharing of the maps, photos and soldiers positions by a robust multimode network. By using feature extraction of the UGV LADAR image, the bandwidth of the transmission can be managed by transmitting only extracted features. UV detectors on the UGV can discriminate small arms fire, rocket fire or explosions. The UV detector can discriminate small arms fire, rocket fire or explosions. The soldiers can then interrogate these indicated features to obtain fused sensor images of detected targets obtained by visible and LWIR images from the UGV.
