The proposed effort will convert and existing air-dropped GARC hull and its mission elements from gasoline waterjet propulsion (Mercury Optimax) to unmanned diesel outdrive propulsion. This conversion will require: incorporation of a diesel engine and outdrive, hull internal structural changes to enable mounting of the engine and outdrive, exhaust and cooling system changes to accommodate the diesel engine, fuel system changes, and engine/steering control system interfaces between the existing control system and the new engine and outdrive. The work will include the onboard HM&E electronic interface systems (e.g., CAN bus) necessary to interface with an autonomy system such as Caracas or MOCU.
