Paper Abstract

This paper will provide a summary of the methodology, metrics, analysis, and trade study efforts for the preliminary design o the Vetronics Processing Architecture (PA) system based on the Demo III Experimental Unmanned Ground Vehicle (XUV) program requirements. We will document and describe both the provided and analytically derived system requirements expressed by the proposal. Our experience based on previous mobility and Reconnaissance, Surveillance, Targeting, Acquisition systems designed and implemented for Demo II Semi-Autonomous Surrogate Vehicle and Mobile Detection, Assessment and Response System will be used to describe lessons learned as applied to the XUV in PA architecture, Single Board Computers, Card Cage Buses, Real-Time and Non Real-Time processor and Card Cage to Card Cage Communications, and Imaging and Radar pre-processors selection and choices. We have selected an initial architecture methodology.
