SOURCE supported development of perception, intelligence, control, and tactical behavior technologies to allow unmanned vehicles to assist Soldiers in combat.
SOURCE technologies provide reliable and safe unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) that will reduce system operator interventions and increase Soldier survivability and combat effectiveness. SOURCE also developed man-portable robots to conduct autonomous building-reconnaissance missions for Soldiers. In the Fall of 2011, the Autonomous Platform Demonstrator (APD) was tested under this program using RR’s registration and path planning software.
