Abstract
Unique challenges exist for U.S. and allied forces within post-conflict areas controlled by hostile forces. Route planning through an area where the customs, lifestyles and social norms are not thoroughly understood presents one of the challenges for these forces. The proposed solution utilizes a three dimensional search technique in (x,y,t) complemented by a probabilistic three dimensional representation of hazards. These hazards depend on the cultural mores as well as the level of aggressiveness. We have assembled a strong team with Robotic Research, General Dynamics and Rababy and Associates that has extensive experience developing, testing and deploying planning solutions.
