Paper Abstract

The Defence R&D Canada (DRDC) has been given strategic direction to pursue research to increase the independence and effectiveness of unmanned military vehicles and systems. This led to the creation of the Autonomous Land Systems(ALS) project that was completed in 2005 with a successful demonstration of semi-autonomous UGVs in open partially vegetated environments. Cohort is a newly funded project that will work to develop effective UxV teams for urban and complex environments. This paper will briefly discuss the state of UGV research at the completion of ALS and other research projects supporting Cohort. The goals and challenges of Cohort will be outlined as well as the research plan that involves many of DRDC's laboratories from across Canada.
