Abstract
The Quick Attack Reconnaissance Remote Vehicle Platform is a remotely operated vehicle capable of performing combat and physical security missions. The modular platform features quick-change attachments that will accommodate a variety of weapon, video, audio, and bio/chemical sampling systems. The vehicle is able to operate in adverse climates and in rough terrain. The ground speed of the vehicle in good conditions is in excess of 10 miles per hour. The vehicle can be stored in a remote docking station where it can charge its batteries and remain in a passive, standby mode. The unit can be activated and dispatched into service remotely. The vehicle is capable of returning to its station to recharge or replace its power source without needing a human asset being present. This is ideal for protecting remote areas of a facility or to maintain a continuous unmanned battle capability at an installation under chemical attack. The platform will be controlled from a remote location. The control module is easily man-portable and the platform can be deployed by a light vehicle (Suburban, Hummer, etc.). This platform will be quick and agile. It is an efficient means for attacking/defending against enemy vehicles and personnel.
