US Army Robotic Vehicle to Be Outfitted With Personnel Safety System by Stratom

The US Army has awarded Stratom a contract to develop a standalone personnel safety system for Robotic Combat Vehicle-Light (RCV-L).

The firm will provide its Perimeter Safety for Autonomous Vehicles (P-SAV) system as part of the deal. The robotic program provides a complete 360-degree perspective for the unmanned vehicle. It is equipped with a machine learning algorithm to intelligently track and identify objects around in the immediate vicinity of the unit.

The P-SAV system, designed for compatibility with other vehicle platforms, has been developed with newly-developed software that processes information and passes it on to the RCV operator and a dedicated computer system to take necessary action.

The applique kit for the RCV-L will include hardware components, advanced image processing software, and a secured computer system effective for situational awareness and personnel identification in complex field operations.

The platform will also “maximize the reliability of results in all weather conditions while balancing ease of use, versatility, and cost.”

Stratom’s US Military Projects
Stratom’s selection for the RCV-L safety system contract follows previous projects developed for the US army and US Marine Corps, such as the eXpeditionary Robotic-Platform (XR-P), Autonomous Pallet Loader (APL), and XR-FAAR vehicles.

“As robotic vehicles are increasingly utilized across applications where it may be inconvenient, dangerous or impossible to have a human operator present, we are excited for the opportunity to bring our successful past performance to the RCV-L program and continue supporting the government in its objective to move toward autonomous systems,” said Stratom President and CEO Mark Gordon.

“At Stratom, we have a deep understanding of the Army’s needs and objectives, which positions us to uniquely recognize what they’re looking for — and then transform our technical expertise into solutions that meet the Department of Defense’s operational needs,” Stratom Principal Roboticist Andrew Lycas added.
