The US Army is creating a family of three robotic platforms, officially called as the Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV) project with a big, medium, and tiny variants, as part of its multi-billion dollar modernization drive.
The Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross-Functional Team and Program Executive Office Ground Combat Systems are in charge of the RCV effort. Currently, all Project Origin vehicles are eight-wheeled platforms the size of a small car that can carry numerous payloads. These vehicles are intended to serve as a guide for the kind of vehicles the Army would utilize to assemble its RCV fleet. Robots obstructing landing zones and junctions. Robots engaging the adversary before the arrival of the special operators. Additionally, robots that sneak beyond enemy lines to wreck havoc on hostile airfields. The US Army has been developing these ideas on paper for years as it tries to determine the best way to integrate unmanned vehicles into the battlefield. The Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center’s Project Origin initiative allowed them to all to undergo successful real-world testing.
