A Snapshot of OneSAF Customer-Funded Activities Robotics Michelle Griffin Radar Training Support Phil Curl Advanced Concepts Research Tool (ACRT) Wayne Minton One Semi-Automated Force (OneSAF) Robotics Support Michelle Griffin Robotics Support Customer – Robotic Systems Joint Project Office (RSJPO) Task – Provide the ability to conduct exercises/experiments on robot assets in a constructive and virtual environment. – Provide analytical tool to help requirement developers define CONOPs and TTPs for unmanned ground vehicle. – Add capabilities to OneSAF: • Represent unmanned ground vehicles and their aggregates. • Allow command and control of the simulated robots. • Provide ability to collect modeling and behavior data for analysis. • Enable joystick control of robot entities with 3D “out the window” view. Technical Capabilities • UGV simulated entities provide representation of the Talon, Packbot, and MARCbot robots and their capabilities within OneSAF. • Remote Control Framework models connectivity/control between the operator and his/her robot entity. • Robot behaviors allow a user to command and control the simulated robots and their units within OneSAF. – IED disposal, robot reconnaissance • Arm articulation provide control of a simulated robot’s arms/manipulator through a joystick/game controller. – Manipulate the location of cameras on a robot’s arm One Semi-Automated Force (OneSAF) Radar Training Support Phil Curl Radar Effort Overview • Customer – PM Radars • Tasks – Still in requirements/data gathering stage – Provide a consistent training capability for operators of three Weapon Locating Radar (WLR) systems – Includes radar entity enhancement, ballistics modeling, interface definition – Using existing GUIs, provide Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) capability – Provide message communication for simulation exercises LVC Participation One Semi-Automated Force (OneSAF) Advanced Concepts Research Tool Wayne Minton Advanced Concepts Research Tool (ACRT) Customer: – Army Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) Task: – Build a low cost virtual simulator capability with OneSAF to allow soldiers to role play each of the positions within the FCS and current force vehicles: • Ground vehicle (GV) • Command and Control Vehicle (C2V) • UAV and UGV • Dismounted soldiers – Hardware • Design and fabricate ACRT enclosures • Design and procure system hardware – Software. Add capabilities to OneSAF to • Interoperate with an application with a 3D view • Enable joystick control of OneSAF models.
