Paper Abstract

This paper describes the Operator Control Unit (OCU) developed for use in the first of three yearly demonstrations and Battle Lab Warfighting Experiments (BLWEs) for the Demo III/XUV program. The OCU hardware and software provides the man machine interface to a team of Experimental Unmanned Vehicles (XUVs). The OCU provides the capabilities to command and control multiple autonomous unmanned vehicles performing collective and individual scout tasks in support of battalion scout missions. The paper provides an overview of the OCU requirements, the hardware configuration, the man machine interfaces, and software capabilities necessary to support mission planning and execution for XUV scout missions. Additionally we will discuss lessons learned from virtual and constructive simulations conducted at the Mounted Maneuver Battle Labs and from OCU development, integration, and testing.
