Abstract
The U.S. Army is seeking ways to improve mission capability of small Autonomous Unmanned Ground Systems (AUGS) power systems. The challenges with AUGS stem from proprietary nature of information and control of vehicle platforms. The proprietary information is important for robot manufacturers because of investments that are made to develop technology advantages over competition in their base robotic platforms. But this limits"mission specific"configuration capability, complicates the integration and optimization of new technologies onto base platforms, and reduces potential product sales. This SBIR will define, design, develop, implement, and demonstrate an intelligent power control solution to improve system efficiency, provide management of application specific devices, and enable integration and interaction with base robot vehicle platforms.
