Why ROBOTs?
  • Most combat medic casualties occur treating
    soldiers under fire.
  • Many soldier casualties occur when providing
    buddy aid.
  • Prevalence of urban operations in peace
    keeping/humanitarian missions
  • Operations in hazardous and contaminated areas
    due to increased
  • threat of weapons of mass destruction.
  • Army Future Combat Systems goal is to require
    1/3 of its vehicle be
  • autonomous by 2015.
  • Robotic vehicles reduce deployment weight,
    volume, and requirements
  • for airlift.

  • The Mission of the
  • TATRC Mobile Robotics Portfolio
  • is to Develop Truly Autonomous
  • Combat Casualty Rescue and Care.

Investment and Development Directions
  • Current Holy Grail - Picking up the
    casualty without doing further harm. Still no
    emerging direction or tech leader.
  • Common/Open Robotic Operating Systems.
  • Navigation Technologies.
  • User Interface - Video game builders are
    experts in user interfaces that even
    preschoolers are able to use to perform
    complicated tasks take advantage of that.
  • Patient Detection Technologies - RFID, UWB,
    Infra-Red, Color-Image Segmentation, WPSM.
  • Casualty Search UAV Man-Portable.
  • Casualty Rescue/Retrieval UAV.

Schedule / Milestones
  • Dec. 02 Jul. 03 Phase I SBIR initial
    investigation of relevant technologies.
  • Jul. 03 Nov. 03 Phase I Option produce
    detailed system

  • design.
  • Nov. 03 Phase II SBIR REV/REX Start.
  • May 04 Casualty Extraction Robotic
    Stretcher Payload Start.
  • Aug 04 Demonstration of navigation and
    individual sensing technologies.
  • Dec 04 Prototype Evacuation and Extraction
    Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) mobility platforms
    built and demonstrated.
  • Mar 05 Demo of initial patient detection
    technologies.
  • Aug 05 Final demo of patient detection and
    evacuation.
