2013 MCoE Robotics Limited Demo at Fort Benning, GA
The 2013 Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) Robotics Limited Demonstration is an opportunity for industry to demonstrate new and innovative unmanned ground systems to the U.S. Army user and research and development communities. The opportunity for industry members to interact with the capability development community and demonstrate their technologies to end-users has proven to be incredibly valuable.
The MCoE Robotics Limited Demonstration is not a competition or sole source justification, but an opportunity for the MCoE Soldier Division to assess current Squad-Multipurpose Equipment Transport (S-MET) technologies, validate selected S-MET requirements and Live Fire Armed Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV). The demonstration is designed to asses 20 of 52 requirements by putting the platforms through 4 Round Robin type stations and a 4k Mobility course. The Armed UGV Live Fire Demonstration is a one-day event consisting of rehearsals and live fire execution. There will be no assessment of the live fire platforms. Representatives from the MCoE Soldier Division, Maneuver Battle Lab, and TARDEC will observe and participate in various elements of the execution. Additionally, they will evaluate these new technologies, ask questions, and provide honest feedback to industry representatives.
This event has two demonstration opportunities: S-MET Round Robin and the Armed UGV Live Fire. Each demonstration opportunity required applicants to submit preliminary technology proposals, which met specific requirements. Participation in the S-MET Round Robin and the Armed UGV Live Fire Demonstration is closed to the public.
