Paper Abstract

The unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) demonstration C was completed in July of 1995. This was the third of four planned UGV/Demo II demonstrations. Demonstration C highlighted multivehicle premission planning, mission execution monitoring, multivehicle mobility cooperation, target detection from moving and stationary platforms, obstacle avoidance, obstacle map sharing, stealthy movement, autonomous turnaround, formation control/zone security, cooperative reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition, and hill cresting. This demonstration was the first to have two autonomous vehicles working cooperatively while performing a militarily relevant mission. This paper begins with a background of the UGV program and then focuses on Demo C. The paper finishes with an overview of the Demo II missions.
