In order to expand the utility of unmanned ground vehicles in today's military, anumber of practical hurdles must be overcome. Better navigation aids must beprovided, and in a way that fits into the current communications infrastructure.The current DoD Standard Teleoperation Kit (STK), which allows any vehicle to becontrolled remotely, employs a standard broadband video link for communicationbetween the operator and vehicle. This link is limited to line-of-sightapplications over a relatively short range. In addition, it has been observedthat the monocular video provided for vehicle navigation can be inadequate forrecognition and avoidance of obstacles in the vehicle's path-ditches, fallen trees,etc. Leveraging its extensive background in video compression and transmission,Trident proposes to develop a video compression module for attachment to the STKthat provides high-quality stereo video imagery over a single SINCGARS radio link,and allow the operator to view the imagery in stereo.
