Technology Factsheet

Autonomous Platform Demonstrator (APD)

Category: Robotics > Characterization and Inspection > Wheeled/Tracked System
Reference # : Model No :

The APD project will continue the development and maturation of UGV core mobility technologies. This effort will benefit all unmanned platform mobility, subsystem and control development.

APD will ultimately be used as a highly-mobile UGV platform demonstrator for the RVCA program, replacing the Crusher UGV.

APD’s key performance parameters include a top speed of 80 kilometers per hour and the ability to autonomously perform a single lane change. Its size requirements include the ability to deploy two vehicles on a C-130 transport plane.
