PROGRAM SCOPE

Design, Build and Test 2 Vehicles with alternative forms of energy

MULE

Purpose: Evaluate energy demands and packaging restraints to traverse rough terrain and carry a load

  • 1-ton, Diesel / Electric Hybrid with alternative forms of hybrid energy
  • 30 mph on improved roads; Silent Propulsion at 4 mph, 20 minutes
  • Sensing and communication capabilities

UGV

Purpose: Evaluate needs and demands of communication module, sensor suite and data fusion equipment

slide2

COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT

YEAR 1

Define requirements and produce a detailed design

List of specifications of all components

Detailed budget for all components

YEAR 2

Build and test MULE and UGV

List of costs to build

Furnish test data

MTU/KRC path forward requires purchasing UGV equipment in Year 1

slide3

PATH FORWARD

Parallel Path with UGV allowing development while MULE is designed and built

UGV

  • KRC’s existing UGV will be used for
    • Mobility Control development
    • Deployment of Mission Equipment Packages (sensor suites and/or alternative fuel auxiliary power – subject to payload restrictions)
    • Evaluate needs and demands of communication module, sensor suite, and data fusion equipment – Measure and record power use

MULE

    • Diesel / electric hybrid vehicle
    • Off-road mobility and payload capacity for military applications
    • Silent Propulsion capabilities with alternative energy sources (Year 2)
    • Utilize Control Hardware from UGV
slide4

LIMITATIONS BASED ON TIME and FUNDING

UGV

  • Need to immediately start using existing vehicle for information gathering for power requirements of sensors and mobility control development (teleop)
  • No changes in existing power plant or propulsion system
  • Alternative fuel power only as payload for auxiliary power (DIPI)
  • Available as platform for other Mission Equipment Packages

MULE

  • Need to design and develop basic electric propulsion off-road vehicle
  • Ability to add Alternative Fuel Power as selected in future
  • Use Mobility Control hardware developed on UGV
  • Use sensor suites developed on UGV
slide5

NEED NAME FOR LARGER UGV

A “MULE-LIKE” vehicle

MULE is trademark of Lockheed Martin and defined by FCS

This is a Technology Demonstrator / Research Tool / Development Platform

For the 2.5-ton class of military robotic vehicles designed to transport the volume and payload of equipment and supplies for two squads.
