cyber warfare, and optical warfare.
This approach also seeks to use
unmanned assets to ranges greater
than 300 meters while maneuvering
at a normal squad pace.
Squad sensing seeks to enable
the rifle squad to detect and pinpoint hidden human threats out to
1,000 meters while maneuvering at
a squad pace. DARPA particularly is
interested in approaches that might
involve acoustic sensor arrays,
handheld radar, human heartbeat
monitors, and infrared sensors.
Squad autonomy, finally, seeks to
enable rifle squad members to keep
track of each other and their unit’s
location to less than six meters in
GPS-denied environments by collaborating with unmanned systems
maneuvering in squad formations.
It could involve the collaboration of
squad members and unmanned systems, and to enable robots operating with the squad to maneuver as
members of the squad formation.
A small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), for example, could operate
100 to 200 feet above and in front of
the squad to track squad members
and take cues from squad maneuvers. An unmanned ground vehicle
(UGVs) might operate in front of the
squad as an advance scout. Other
UGVs could operate with the squad
to carry supplies and communications gear.
DARPA particularly is interested in non-active sensors, or
those with minimal signatures
like spread-spectrum light detection and ranging (LIDAR). Sensors
need to be small, lightweight, and
In the first phase of the SXCT
program, Lockheed Martin and SRI
International developed concepts
in each of the four technological
areas. In the second phase Lockheed
Martin enhanced promising tech-
nologies from the first phase. Now
Lockheed Martin will develop proto-
types for field testing.
On this contract, Lockheed Martin
will do the work in Grand Prairie,
Texas; Rome, N. Y.; Menlo Park, Calif.;
Woburn, Mass.; Ann Arbor, Mich.;
and Cherry Hill, N.J., and should be
finished by August 2019. Í
