Overview
NREC is implementing an end-to-end control architecture for unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) to reduce integration risk in the US Army’s Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. The Robotic Vehicle Control Architecture (RVCA) program demonstrates whether autonomous UGV operations can be successfully carried out with FCS representative system-of-system hardware and software components. Its rigorous, ongoing field testing unites the powerful Crusher UGV with the advanced capabilities of the Autonomous Navigation System (ANS) and other FCS components. Unclassified: Distribution A.
