ROBOTIC SYSTEMS JOINT PROJECT OFFICE TECHNOLOGY NEEDS ANALYSIS

by Adam Brennan; Aaron D. Hart; Nancy Saxon; Robert Rappold; Mark Mazzara

Abstract

This paper addresses the Program Management Office’s perspective of the robotic technology needs required to meet the capability gaps identified by the Warfighter. The objective is to relay these needs to the Science and Technology (S&T) community and industry in order to guide their investment dollars in the right direction. The Robotic Systems Joint Project Office (RS JPO) has been working closely with the Tank Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to establish near, mid and far term needs for robotic technologies. The hope is to communicate those needs to successfully steer the robotic research and development efforts to meet the capabilities most needed by our Warfighters.
