As the US Army moves ahead with its Robotic Combat Vehicle programme, Shephard's latest Technology Report examines the expanding mission set of UGVs of all classes and sizes. Andrew White takes a look at how the latest payloads are opening up new ISR and combat capabilities for uncrewed platforms and the potential role of larger vehicles such as the RCV as carriers for smaller robotic systems.
Andrew then turns to the ways a family of UGVs can leverage common control systems and payloads to alleviate the task of a UGV's operator and how new technology can reduce the cognitive burden on the soldier in the loop.
