Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR AN UNMANNED MULTI-PURPOSE NAVY ROBOT SUITABLE FOR OUTDOOR, INDOOR OR SHIPBOARD USE. SUCH A VEHICLE CAN BE READILY DERIVED FROM UNIQUE'S PRIOR WORK ON HIGH PERFORMANCE FULL MOBILITY VEHICLE PLATFORMS. THIS PLATFORM, MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF UNIQUE'S HIGHLY EFFICIENT PROPRIETARY ELECTRIC DRIVE SYSTEM, INCORPORATES FOUR WHEEL DRIVE WITH FOUR WHEEL 360 DEG STEER IN COMBINATION WITH A UNITIZED COMPOSITE BODY. AS PRESENTLY CONCEIVED, THIS VEHICLE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO OUTCORNER, OUT-CLIMB AND OUTMANEUVER ANY KNOWN LAND VEHICLE. IT WILL ACCOMODATE AN INFINITE VARIETY OF ON-BOARD PAYLOAD PACKAGES AND SENSOR SUITES. IT IS THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I EFFORT TO CONDUCT AND VERIFY A TRADE-OFF STUDY TO SELECT A "BEST" DESIGN CONFIGURATION WITHIN THE CONSTRAINTS OF KNOWN COST AND PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS AND THEN TO RENDER A FINAL DESIGN AND COST ANALYSIS OF THE PROPOSED MACHINE.
