Abstract

As more of our enemies expand the number and complexity of their underground facilities, the need to improve the tools that provide consistent situational awareness (SA) increases accordingly. For complex missions such as these, we require a family of systems (FoS) that have different capabilities, and can address various mission needs. Robotic Research proposes creating a unique, small platform (Pegasus-M, for “mini”) that will fit in an 8” opening (threshold) or 6” opening (goal). This platform will be a transformable robot that is capable of driving and flying, and will be able to fulfill a variety of mission needs.
