Paper Abstract

The objective of the Joint Robotics Program (JRP) is to research, develop, acquire and field unmanned ground vehicle systems for the United States Armed Forces. The program is structured to field first generation Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) systems, mature promising technologies and then upgrade capabilities by means of an evolutionary strategy. The JRP has a history of adapting to new mission area requirements. An emerging mission area is the employment of UGV systems in conjunction with Unattended Ground Sensors. The author will provide an overview of Service perspectives on sensors and intelligence, recent UGV/UGS efforts, and offer comments on interoperability.
