Paper Abstract

Experiences in Operational Desert Shield and Desert Storm revealed deficiencies in several areas of major importance in the post-Cold Ware era. Early entry forces must be provided with improved warfighting capabilities, especially against heavy armor, without affecting their deployability. The Rapid Force Projection Initiative (RFPI) Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD) is tasked with addressing this deficiency. The RFPI ACTD features a hunter/standoff killer concept that relies on a variety of hunters and standoff killers to provide a significant increase in the warfighting capability of early entry forces. One of the hunters is the Remote Sentry Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD). The Remote Sentry ATD will provide an autonomous, remote, ground based, wide-area Reconnaissance, Surveillance, and Target Acquisition capability during day/night and limited visibility conditions. The Remote Sentry ATD is being produced by Alliant Techsystems in partnership with the Harris RF Communications. The ATD is managed and technically directed by the CERDEC Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate.
