In response to the DHS SBIR Topic DHS211-005, entitled Amphibious XTV for Ice Rescue, Triton Systems, Inc., will develop an amphibious Xtreme Terrain Vehicle (XTV) to facilitate United States Coast Guard (USCG) ice rescue missions quickly and safely. This project leverages Tritons experience developing augmented vehicles for the military, including work in autonomous navigation systems and extensive robotic ground vehicle expertise. In Phase I, Triton determines technical feasibility for its vehicle that includes a project plan and supporting documentation that demonstrates proof-of-concept. Triton will design a concept for technical feasibility and develop approaches for addressing the requirements in the description and provide a detailed plan of a fully operational prototype that meets requirements to be reviewed and evaluated at the end of Phase I. In Phase II, Triton will develop a prototype to demonstrate in a realistic test and evaluation environment to include end-to-end operational viability. Tritons XTV will be designed and built to minimize life cycle cost and be sustained by maintenance programs of record (to include maintenance procedure cards detailing schedule and procedures for sustainment by Coast Guard personnel). Tritons design will emphasize maintainability, equipment access and sustainment efficiencies by incorporating common boat components, such as electronics, engines and hardware/software. In Phase III, Triton would include further technical development to address gaps discovered during the test and evaluation and further end-user feedback. Research and development efforts from Phase III will result in a mature commercial or government application that can be delivered for operational use.
