Abstract
THE TECHNOLOGY TO ALLOW REPLACEMENT OF PERSONNEL BY MOBILE ROBOTS IN HIGH RISK SITUATIONS EXISTS TODAY. THE NEAR TERM APPROACH, NOT REQUIRING EXTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE REQUIRES USE OF A BROAD BANDWIDTH SECURE, ANTI JAM COMMUNICATIONS LINK TO ALLOW MAN-IN-THE-LOOP OPERATION. THIS PROGRAM PROPOSES TO STUDY THE MAKE-UP OF SUCH LINKS FOR SHORT, INTERMEDIATE AND LONG RANGE ROBOTIC MISSIONS; TO SELECT CONFIGURATIONS FOR FURTHER STUDY; AND TO ESTIMATE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM COSTS AND SCHEDULE AND PRODUCTION COSTS OF SELECTED LINKS. RECOMMENDED FOLLOW-ON EFFORT BASED ON THESE STUDIES WILL BE DEFINED.
