Challenge 2: Autonomous Ground Resupply:
Develop an Autonomous Ground Resupply Capability for existing tactical wheeled vehicles (TWVs) that will enable vehicles to operate with minimal human input to accomplish assigned missions. Vehicles may operate independently or in a manned/unmanned teaming environment. A capability may also be provided to control and assign missions remotely through an operator control unit (OCU).
The potential benefits of this capability may include reduced Soldier risk exposure, improved throughput, improved 24/7 operational support, the potential to reduce the Soldier.s operational logistical burden, and improve the Soldier.s ability to focus on mission-critical tasks.
Potential technology solution candidates include:
(1) Autonomous Mobility Applique System (AMAS)
(2) Automated Material Handling Systems
