The Army Corps of Engineers is seeking capability statements from potential vendors for an unmanned ground vehicle with autonomous capabilities.
An Army notice posted today states the service requires an autonomous UGV to be used for research, testing, evaluation and demonstration efforts. The UGV "needs to have off-road, weather resistance capabilities for use in a wide variety of environments" and a "high-performance computing system."
The UGV should also include Global Positioning System capabilities, long-range communication functionality, an inertial measurement unit and have a standard runtime of at least three hours, among other requirements.
Interested industry should submit capability statements no later than April 8.
