General Dynamics Land Systems to showcase unmanned vehicles at AUSA 2021

At AUSA 2021, General Dynamics Land Systems will unveil its new family of medium-class robotic combat vehicles (RCV-M), among many other systems, at the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual conference: Tracked Robot 10-Ton (TRX), Multi-Utility Tactical Transport (MUTT), and much more.

The robotic combat vehicles have a new, modular open architecture that features scalable hardware and software for next-generation capabilities. The Katalyst Next Generation Electronic Architecture (NGEA) significantly improves warfighter effectiveness via enhanced mobility (obstacle avoidance, path planning); lethality (object detection, object identification/recognition, automated target prioritization), and survivability/reconnaissance (360-degree situational awareness, see-through armor, terrain analysis). Katalyst NGEA provides core capabilities such as computing, sensor fusion and processing, and power management and distribution. It also provides unparalleled performance and size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) to support evolving needs.

Tracked Robot 10-Ton (TRX): Part of the Robotic Combat Vehicle-Medium (RCV-M) class, TRX features innovative thinking, ranging from its AI-enhanced design to advanced, lightweight materials and a hybrid-electric propulsion system. TRX sets a new best-in-class payload capacity to accommodate any mission equipment package. TRX’s power and size make it an ideal platform for multi-role MUM-T on today’s battlefield. TRX is positioned to provide superior performance as enabling technology in a myriad of critical battlefield roles, including direct and indirect fire, autonomous resupply, complex obstacle breaching, counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS), electronic warfare (EW), reconnaissance and other battlefield missions.

Besides the new RCV-M class, the Multi-Utility Tactical Transport (MUTT) is a semi-autonomous robotic platform that reduces physical burden on the dismounted Soldier and can be equipped with an array of Modular Mission Payloads. It is the most intuitive, capable and reliable UGV ever produced and the first of its kind to be selected for service alongside dismounted troops. MUTT uses unique methods of control, such as the dismount following tether or the easy-to-use one-handed RC controller, which minimize Soldiers’ physical and cognitive loads during dismounted missions. General Dynamics Land Systems’ MUTT was selected by the U.S. Army in July 2020 for the Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport (S-MET) program. Future capabilities will include autonomous resupply, counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS); chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defense; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR); electronic warfare (EW); direct fire and indirect fire.

Autonomous Vehicle Sustainment (AVS): Moving from reactive to predictive maintenance, Land Systems’ Prognostic & Predictive Maintenance solution optimizes equipment performance and increases operational readiness while reducing the Army’s cost of ownership of vehicle fleets. The on-platform health, usage, monitoring system is integrated with next-generation electronic architecture to provide forward-looking, real-time decision actionable logistics information.
