PROGRAM SCOPE Design, Build and Test 2 Vehicles with option types of vitality MULE Purpose: Evaluate vitality requests and bundling restrictions to cross harsh territory and convey a heap 1-ton, Diesel/Electric Hybrid with option types of half and half vitality 30 mph on enhanced streets; Silent Propulsion at 4 mph, 20 minutes Sensing and correspondence abilities UGV Purpose: Evaluate needs and requests of correspondence module, sensor suite and information combination gearSlide 2
COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT YEAR 1 Define prerequisites and create a point by point outline List of particulars of all segments Detailed spending plan for all segments YEAR 2 Build and test MULE and UGV List of expenses to manufacture Furnish test information MTU/KRC way ahead requires acquiring UGV hardware in Year 1Slide 3
PATH FORWARD Parallel Path with UGV permitting improvement while MULE is planned and assembled UGV KRC's current UGV will be utilized for Mobility Control advancement Deployment of Mission Equipment Packages (sensor suites or potentially elective fuel helper control – subject to payload confinements) Evaluate needs and requests of correspondence module, sensor suite, and information combination gear – Measure and record control utilize MULE Diesel/electric mixture vehicle Off-street portability and payload limit with regards to military applications Silent Propulsion capacities with option vitality sources (Year 2) Utilize Control Hardware from UGVSlide 4
LIMITATIONS BASED ON TIME and FUNDING UGV Need to instantly begin utilizing existing vehicle for data gathering for power necessities of sensors and versatility control improvement (teleop) No progressions in existing force plant or impetus framework Alternative fuel control just as payload for assistant power (DIPI) Available as stage for other Mission Equipment Packages MULE Need to plan and create essential electric drive rough terrain vehicle Ability to include Alternative Fuel Power as chose in future Use Mobility Control equipment created on UGV Use sensor suites created on UGVSlide 5
NEED NAME FOR LARGER UGV A "Donkey LIKE" vehicle MULE is trademark of Lockheed Martin and characterized by FCS This is a Technology Demonstrator/Research Tool/Development Platform For the 2.5-ton class of military mechanical vehicles intended to transport the volume and payload of hardware and supplies for two squads.
