Title Practical To Tactical: Making the Case for a Shift in Ground Vehicle Robotics.
Publication Date May 2012
Media Count 28p
Personal Author J. Overholt
Abstract Problem Statement: Soldiers in Small Units (squads/fire teams/crews) are physically overburdened, often carrying up to 130lbs; this degrades performance and may result in immediate, as well as, long term consequences. Near term (FY17): Reduce physical burden of Soldier and Small Unit, including the grenadier, SAW gunner and attached combat medic, so that load reduction of the carried weight equates to a percentage not exceeding 50% of individual's body weight across the central 90% of the male Soldier population.
